My 1949 Mercury mordor sled was built in 1983 and I acquired it in Dec. 2010. It was restored in the spring of 2011. It sits on a 1969 Pontiac Gran Prix chassis and runs a Chevy 350/350 combo. It has been chopped 3", shaved, front fenders extended with frenched '54 Buick headlights, frenched '59 Caddy taillights, trunk and hood corners rounded, '54 Chevy grill with 13 teeth and frenched antenna. The front wheel well openings have been flared to match the flares on the "51 Mercury skirts. The trunk was sliced and a third brake light was recessed and molded. It runs and drives great and gets loads of looks.
