Purchased from Rick Dore (appx 18 years ago) - Have good pink, registered current non-op status.
Started with a rust free rolling chassis 51 Merc.
Bought a good driving 1978 Olds, drove it home from LA.
Took the motor out & cut the body off the Olds, leaving floor and rolling chassis, then took the motor out of the Merc and cut floor out. Dropped Merc body on Olds floor and chassis and welded it solid around perimeter. Firewall is also welded in.
Roof is chopped and laid down, slanted posts.
Handles Shaved, Tail lamp pockets welded up and finished over.
Rounded corners of deck lid and doors.
Hood and trunk are mounted and I have latches but latches are not installed.
Doors are mounted and open and close fine with latches.
Floor needs to be finished over tranny tunnel
Custom flush fitted removable skirts (lot of filler on them-was making them for a mold prototype, but can also be used)
49 Grille shell
(No accessories are bolted on permanent, just set on for pics.)
Dash from a 1949 Merc set in
Headlamp housings set in
Air bags and lines installed and work if pumped up with air. Comes with solenoid, tank, compressor and switches, but not currently hooked up. Car literally lays on the ground when bags are deflated! :)
Has stock rims off Olds, but needs different off-set in the back for the skirts to fit perfect.
Roof is finished out, rest of bodywork is started but pretty much needs skim-coat and needs finish work (Left side more finished than right). Painted satin black sealer just for uniformity.
