    I like that James.

    Doug Thomson did something similar to a ’41 Ford he did for Jack Walker.

    Only that was a convertible and it was sectioned as well, so the proportions are a bit different. But it shows that it could work.

    And i see they were right to bring the top of that rear fender forwards and not match the position of the Merc fender. It balances out the super long front fender line too…

    Very interesting idea to incorporate the ’49-’51 Merc door dogleg. As you probably know, the design of the dogleg was intended to tie the new ’49 design into a revised version of the ’48 and earlier pontoon fender look. The dogleg never made sense to me until I read that…

    I really dig the look of the Buick rear quarters! That dark green, Carson topped Ford with a Zephyr front clip had them too.

    Thanks. interested in any tips replies or insight concerning the fade away fenders especially the hinge side door opening. I have seen them in line with the original opening and sometimes offset toward the front of the car.

    Had issues with the original door hinges so I just grafted the 49 merc door end to my old door. I made it fit. now I need some 50 Mercury door hinges!
