    First and foremost, this is a big project. Please view all pictures and ask any questions you might have.

    I bought this project a few years ago and have collected additional parts for it since then. I added a rear end and solid floor to the rolling frame to start the build, but life has gotten in the way. I found a really solid cowl to use in conjunction with the real convertible cowl as a foundation to start hanging the doors and working from there back. I just no longer have the time in my schedule to see this project go any further (I teach high school full-time and still do kustom work). I had dreams of building a Bettancourt Merc “convertible clone”…or something along those lines.

    It comes with:

    -Clear VIN tags (and bill of sale)

    -Good floor with solid inner rockers

    -New outer rockers that I made myself at Matt Townsend’s shop (Thanks, Matt!) I can upload pics of them later.

    -Really nice hood and trunk lid

    -Front fenders and grill shell (molded and head lights frenched when I got them)

    -Real convertible cowl and rear section (See pictures)

    -Real convertible doors (need patches- see pictures- sedan door for extra patch pieces and two doorjamb sections)

    -Real convertible door vent windows and inner window/beltline moldings

    -Four original Merc rims

    -Radiator and core support with horns (I can take pics of the radiator)

    -Good set of door hinges (4)

    -Good condition hood latch panel

    -Complete ’50-’51 Merc steering column and box and wheel (horn button center is included)

    -Hood and trunk hinges

    -Miscellaneous real convertible pieces

    -I found a good condition ’49-’50 Merc gas filler tube that is not pictured but goes with it.

    -I have some Merc quarter panels that can be put together to make a pair (not pictured), but they sell brand new ones for $850 each and they are actually pretty thick and fit well (I have installed a few sets).

    Price: $4,250

    I will not part any of this out so please do not ask

    I know this would make a killer kustom project for someone who wants to build a Merc. The car is located in Southern California near Temecula- about 60 miles north of San Diego. I can meet people there to show everything.

    If this sells through Custom Car Chronicle, I will give Rik a donation to help this great site grow 🙂
