’55 Mercury

 

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as bringing a classic back to life. It’s like turning back the pages of history to breathe life into the past. It’s true that things just aren’t made like they used to be anymore, and it’s our responsibility to keep the past from disappearing altogether. This beautiful Mercury came to us in need of body repair and a fresh coat of paint. There were holes completely rusted through and body lines that wouldn’t line up correctly. The hood itself was actually sitting about 2 inches off, which was the culprit for the rest of the lines with the fenders not matching up. The car had no B pillar, making the top frame somewhat vulnerable to wear and the connecting points for the hard top had to be welded for reinforcement. We think that she turned out beautifully. What do you think?

Speaking of classic cars, we would like to once again remind you that our Car Show is coming up in just over a month. Want to see more beauties like this Mercury? Come on down and join us on August 26th for food, fun, and a raffle for prizes. We are still looking for a few great people or companies to donate their services or goods to the raffle, so if you’re interested, get in touch with us! I will be hunting down donors pretty seriously over the next few weeks, so let us know if you’d like to help. Thanks to those that have already stepped in to answer the call. We are getting close, so naturally, we are getting excited! Please RSVP to the event if you think you might be coming, so we can get a proper headcount, and feel free to share the event on your Facebook page and get your friends and family to join us! Thank you all for the support! We appreciate it immensely!
