49 Merc rusty car

Recommended Posts

Her are some pictures of a 49 Merc that had most of the parts missing so I found what was needed and rusted it up a bit.  I also used the lowered rear suspension for the worn out spring look and it's sagging in the rear.

I love the detail on the chassis.  Very well done.  I wouldn't want to drive that one very fast!

Thanks for all the kind words guys.  I had a lot of fun building this from what I started with.  The hood, trunk, engine and other parts had to be found to complete this car.

Thanks guys.  I try to make the rusting as real as possible.

Spot on for sure. Especially the care taken on the stance. That droopy butt is how I remember most of those worn out tubs.

Thanks guys, and I hear ya Mike about the droopy rear.  I finally found a use for the dropped rear springs.  I'm not a fan of low riders and the dropped rear was an easy fix with these parts.
