    Default 51 Merc Monarch Build

    We guys time for another build been a few months. This time it's for my better half. I did some work for a friend and got a 51 Merc in trade, and she claimed it her's. So it's been on the back burner for to long.
    The plan is to make a nice reliable driver for her to cruise in so a chassis swap was in order and a 86 Parisienne was used as a donor.

    The day we picked it up.


    Fast forward a few years and I finally have it in the shop and am cutting the body from the chassis.

    If you tilt your head to the right it'll make sense that it's the rear wheel tub haha


    The firewall mess this will take a little work to pretty up.


    What I had done was cut the whole post out of the donor and then slid the merc over using the stock inner rockers of the donor car.

    Here is the problem that I knew I was going to run into was the wheel base wasn't quite the same. So to make it fit I had to move the fender back a little.



    Almost there just have rust repair to take care of yet.


    And parting shot of the happy owner, and shop partner doing her part seeing as it is her car :)
