Re: 1959 Colony Park Wagon 430 cu in. w/air Frame Off Resto

Hi there, just another quick question, were you able to buy your body mounts (and if so where from?) or did you get them made? thanks in advance, Hamish

Re: 1959 Colony Park Wagon 430 cu in. w/air Frame Off Resto

Wow!! your car has come out amazing!

Thanks for the tips on finding parts.

I raided that Merc at Dessert Valley about a year ago and took all of the parts I needed. I guess I will have to keep on looking on ebay etc

Again, well done on completing the car

Re: 1959 Colony Park Wagon 430 cu in. w/air Frame Off Resto

Hi there,

Where are some of the places you have bought new/NOS or even second hand parts from for your restoration? I have a Commuter wagon and am having a hard time trying to find parts like back up lights and various trim. Especially since I'm from New Zealand!!

Cheers

1959 Mercury Windscreen

Hi there,

I need a new windscreen for my 59 Mercury wagon and was wondering where the best place to get one would be without costing me a fortune?

Cheers.

Re: 430 4 barrel intake on 383?

Thanks guys,

My carb is stuffed and it will work out cheaper to get a 4 barrel holley carb and the 4 barrel intake from a 430 and bolt it on than to rebuild the carb that is on it.

Thanks again

430 4 barrel intake on 383?

Hi all,

I have a 383 from a 1959 Merc and it only has a 2 barrel intake manifold. I can get a cheap 4 barrel manifold from a 1959 430 and was wondering if anyone knows if it is a straight bolt up?

Cheers
