A Real Classic From 1946

A customer has left in our possession this beautiful and awesome example of a right hand drive, New Zealand build Ford Mercury Eight flat head from 1946. The engine is running a little rough hence why we have her here and we will sort that out. This engine has two water pumps, two top and bottom hoses, distributer that sits in front of the engine, 6v electrical system and side valves. A little research was needed on this beauty to find out what we needed to know in order to fix her. The body work is in great condition and has been well looked after. The ventilation is unique if not a little basic, you have two choices on or off for left or right side depending on which little door you open. the de-mister area couple of slots just under the windscreen. This is a little bit different to the muscle cars we are used to, but we are pleased to take her into the fold to be looked after. What a find and we wonder how many more are out there? Let us know.

This week we have been taking strides on the now becoming legendary “Mastic Mustang”. There has been some real interest in this little car on how she is coming along. We have updated the page under the Customers Cars – 67 Mastic Mustang with the work we have done to remove the rotten floor and sills. Some nice welding work from the guys is getting her back in shape. A little way to go still but she’s moving along, soon we hope under her own power again. Once we have finished with this little lady there will be no more mastic, just majestic!
