1951 Merc2Dr Coupe Custom Chop Top Hot Rod For Sale

Many years of blood sweat and tears into this car, just ran out of steam...


Purchased from Rick Dore (appx 18 years ago) - Have good pink, registered current non-op status.

Started with a rust free rolling chassis 51 Merc.

Bought a good driving 1978 Olds, drove it home from LA.

Took the motor out & cut the body off the Olds, leaving floor and rolling chassis, then took the motor out of the Merc and cut floor out. Dropped Merc body on Olds floor and chassis and welded it solid around perimeter. Firewall is also welded in.

Roof is chopped and laid down, slanted posts.

Handles Shaved, Tail lamp pockets welded up and finished over.

Rounded corners of deck lid and doors.

Hood and trunk are mounted and I have latches but latches are not installed.

Doors are mounted and open and close fine with latches.

Floor needs to be finished over tranny

Custom flush fitted removable skirts (lot of filler on them-was making them for a mold prototype, but can also be used)

49 Grille shell

(No accessories are bolted on permanent, just set on for pics.)

Dash from a 1949 Merc set in

Headlamp housings set in

Air bags and lines installed – work, will also give tank, compressor and switches. Car literally lays on the ground.

Has stock rims off Olds, but needs different off-set in the back for the skirts to fit perfect.

Roof is finished out, rest of bodywork is started but pretty much needs skim-coat and needs finish work (Left side more finished than right). Painted satin black sealer just for uniformity.


Engine: Dodge Hemi 5.7L & tranny out of a running ‘07 Dodge Ram Pickup (70k miles)– bolted in. Motor mounts done, tranny mounts done. New drive shaft, custom fitted and hooked up. Includes: electrical wiring, boxes, coils.

Also including radiator, fan assy, out of the Ram (not sure if these will fit).


Stock Rear Seat Frame Only

2 front seats placed from newer veh just for use (not bolted down)


No front windshield

Back Window (placed on vehicle so you can see fit, not installed) – have extra rear windshield, incls both. Also Incls new weathership for installation (Window is a stock 51 merc window, laid down in body.)

Frames for Wing Window cut for chop top (no glass)

No Side windows, but its flat glass easy to have cut. Have window regulators, inner window garnish mouldings.

Have other misc stock interior parts like window cranks, etc. see pics.

Other Parts Coming with-(Also not installed):

Steering Column from the Olds

Rear Bumper (straight but needs chrome) & stock brackets

Both sets of brackets are stock 51 merc brackets, but need additional brackets made to attach these brackets to the frame.)

Brakes work but need pedal & booster (Olds was good fully running/driving car.)
