rcury owned by John Williamson of Sunland, California. John found the body of the car behind Richard "Korky" Korkes body shop in Southern California. The body had been brought to Korky for some work, and left without contact or pay from the owner for a long time. John asked Korky why he had it out behind the shop on the railroad easement, and Korky told John the owner hadn't paid him, so he threw it out. Korky gave John the body, and he took it home on a $7 UHaul trailer with the help of his friend Bruce Cox.[2] There was no frame, front end or interior when John bought the car, just the empty body. John trailered the body home, and found a 1956 Chevrolet that was damaged in the rear he could use as donor. He stripped the body off the Chevrolet, and shortened the frame at the front and rear so he could install the Mercury body on it. He kept the motor, transmission and suspension from the donor Chevrolet as well. When John was working on the car he found remnants of both green and maroon colors. The original body work had also been done in lead. John sold the car before it was done, and Glen Hooker eventually wound up with it.[1] Glen had Gene Winfield of Winfield's Custom Shop do some bodywork on the car. As the original hood was badly damaged from kids stomping on it, Glen had Winfield section a new hood for the car. In 1987, Don Siglar found the car at Winfield's shop. Jerry told Gene that if the owner ever wanted to sell it, he was interested in buying it. Glen eventually called Don, and the old custom swapped hands. After Don purchased the car, he had Winfield french the headlights and create new wheel arches. Don owned the car for a couple of years, but when Gene Winfield came out with the fiberglass bodied 1948 Ford customs, he bought one of those instead ans sold the Mercury to Jerry Mack of Bend, Oregon. Jerry was living in California at the time, but later he moved back to Oregon, and he brought the Merc with him.[3] After Jerry had owned the car for about 14 years he put it up for sale again. Gordy Brown of Salt Lake City, Utah bought the old Merc from Jerry. The first time Gordy saw the car someone had installed a Buick V6 into it. By the time Jerry put the car up for sale, he had installed a small block Chevrolet V-8 back in it. Prior to Gordy buying the car, it always had a hot rod kind of look with the big tires not he back and small tires up front. Part of this was due to the 1956 Chevrolet front suspension having a 60 inch wide tracking. The Mercury had a 56 inch wide tracking, causing the tires to rub into the fenders when trying to turn anything than a small tire up front. As Gordy wanted a custom look for the car, he had Fat Man Fabrication make a set of narrowed upper and lower arms to pull the wheels in 3 inches. Gordy then installed 14 inch wheels as he felt these fit the overall profile of the car better, and he had Diamond Back Tires make a set of 14" tires with 2 1/4 inch whitewalls. The suspension was fine tuned to set the car level front to rear. The doors were then sectioned before Gordy built a molded running board look below the doors from 1948 Ford lower door sections. 1948 Ford upper door hinges were turned upside down and reversed side to side to replace the lower outside door hinges. In the rear Gordy installed a 1948 Chevrolet bumper that he fit with 1948 Oldsmobile ends. Up front a 1948 Chevrolet bumper fit with pieces cut from 1953 Lincoln bumpers was installed to match the rear bumper. Front and rear pans were molded. The frenched headlights and taillights were cut and replaced by stock 1939 Mercury headlights and 1941 Studebaker tailight bezels and lenses. As the rear of the car is a little heavy, Gordy plans to run the car without fender skirts. He is working on keeping the balance and flow of the car with what was already done to it when he got it. After buying the 1940 Mercury, Gordy also bought Glen Hooker's 1939 Mercury, The Caribbean.[1]

1940 Ford

Message  Predicta le Jeu 13 Nov - 16:25


Originally built in the late 1940's, with a chopped padded top. In the mid 1950's the car was updated at the Barris shop with Buick headlights and new taillights. Then in the 1980's or early 1990's the Rod Powell shop restored it and redid the shop to get a better flow with the top.

1939 Ford Convertible Roadster

Message  Predicta le Mer 27 Mai - 8:07


1939 50’s style Ford convertible Roadster. This car has been featured in several magazines (Street Rodder, March 1991 and American Rodder, June 1998). This street rod is running a 350 Chevy motor and a 350 turbo transmission. The motor was rebuilt with a TRW 8.5.1 moly rings competition cam, fuel injection heads, ported and polished Edelbrock torker manifold, Carter 600 CFM carburetor, TCI headers, Turbo muffler and a Babbs radiator. The front suspension is a TCI straight axle. Split wishbone Mustang disc brakes on the front and drum brakes on the rear. It has an 80 Ford 9 inch rear end with 3.70 gear ratio. This car also has a Vega steering box and a 20 gallon stainless gas tank.

This ‘39 Roadster has an all steel body with burgundy red metallic paint. The front and rear bumpers are from a 1937 Desoto. The upholstery is graphite colored perforated Mercedes vinyl. The rumble seat in the back is the same upholstery, 1939 was the last year of the rumble seat in these cars. The wool carpet is green in color. The Carson top is black, and has been chopped 2 inches. The top lifts off easily with two people.

This car was restored about 25 years ago, and has only been driven a few thousand miles since. It has spent most of its life in a nice garage. All the lights and gauges work. All the glass is good, windows roll up and down nicely. Concept stereo with CB. Lecarra steering wheel. Working dual Appleton spotlights. GM tilt column and stock gauges, all very nice! The windup clock in the dash is still operational. No heat or AC in this car. The whitewall tires are very presentable but a bit aged, not really any cracks though. The wheels have National hubcap flipper discs. Stock style metal fender skirts.

This 39 Roadster has a very cool 50’s custom look with a nice updated drive train. The body is really nice, with no chips, cracks, or rust bubbles in the paint. This car drives out nice and is very dependable; all it needs now is a new driver and a big smile. We are selling this car for a friend, but have thoroughly inspected it and are confident in our information. We have all the receipts and documentation when this car was restored in California in the 90’s
