I've answered it before, but yes Mercury built pickup trucks. They were only available in Canada from the mid-forties through the mid-seventies. They are basically just re-badged Ford F100s with some trim changes, but they are pretty unique.
This particular truck started as just a bare Big Back Window cab and I added a custom rear bed from Dan Carpenter and picked up other parts along the way. It's also got a custom Fatman frame and suspension, big brakes and billet wheels. But otherwise is waiting its turn to be reborn.
Not a lot to say on this project other than I have most of the hard parts I need, What I don't have is enough time. Not to mention there are a bunch of other projects ahead of it.
It's about number 8 on my priority list.
FYI - the gallery below show pictures of my truck under construction and a lot of other finished trucks that give me inspiration, and prevent me from dumping out of this one.
I need therapy.
Nothing yet, but probably an FE motor.
I have a T6-speed for this - if it doesn't get repurposed for something else.
Fatman chassis with Mustang II IFS, four link rear with Currie 9 inch. ART Air shocks all around.
BODY & PAINT
Lots of small dents but no rust. Brand new bed from Dan Carpenter, M100 tailgate from mid-fifty Ford and all the M100 emblems.
Haven't even started.
WHEELS & TIRES
Not the final choice, but currently has Colorado Custom 22x10 in rear with 295/35-22 BFGs. and 20x8.5 in front with 245/35-20 BFGs.
This is an easy build assuming I get the engine and drivetrain sorted out.
Just don't have the time.
I should really sell this one (and a few others ).
