Description:

1942 Mercury coupe

Read carefully. Built in 2001 . Was a rusted down piece of junk. Has a 1937 21 stud good running flathead STOCK motor because that is what I had.I used to race these cars and I wanted to build one where people could see what stock cars looked like in the 50s and early 60s. A 8ba motor is included. I was going to put in the car but ran out of time. Motor is mostly complete. Good motor, Not a great motor. You would want to rebuild the motor anyway.Needs flywheel and pressure plate. Car starts, stops, runs. I run it around my 2 1/2 acres. This race car is not STREET legal or RACE TRACK legal.No Title. I had no reason to title it.Would make a good rat rod or vintage race car . The roll bars would have to be replaced for racing and other vintage race car rules would apply.This was built as it was back then. The car has a stromberg 97, headers, 50 ford truck steering, 40 ford raditor(does not leak), shift on column, WW11 airplane seat belt., WW11 gas jerry can. (old race car item) reverse wheels on 36 ford drums. Two wheel brakes.38 ford truck grille. New 6 volt battery.The starter switch and wiring should be replaced. Oil and heat gauge only.(SW) Local pickup only. Get Car and Motor and Parts same time. Email if any questions. This is listed other places so could end listing anytime.When bidding ends, make arrangements to pick up as soon as possible as I am retiring and moving.
