Let me Introduce you to Marilyn

Feel free to introduce yourself. No obligation off course, but a nice way to get known to you a little. It's allways good to know your first name. Jeff or John sounds better than, "hey linc58prm2_1......"

Let me Introduce you to Marilyn

Post by Jyd » Wed 31. Oct 2018, 08:37

Marilyn is our 1958 Mercury Montclair that we picked up about 5 years ago. We call her Marilyn because the fellow that started her build wanted to make a car that he thought Marilyn Monroe would have driven, thus the pink and mauve interior. I had firmly decided to replace the interior when she was delivered but once you see the car in person the colors fit and tend to grow on you. She has what I believe to be the 383 Modified engine and a Merc-O-Matic When we decided to get back into classic cars we wanted something to take our 80+ year old Mothers out to supper in and yet be able to enter into a few shows, that is why we went looking for a 4 dr car. Little did we know just how rare this year of Mercury was and how hard to find parts for. She has had some 50's type customizing done, lowered, some trim badges removed and a set of cruiser skirts. Since delivery we have actually raised the rear end up an inch as it would constantly drag in and out of every driveway. We also had her pinstriped, in colors matching the interior, at the 2017 KKOA Lead Sled Nationals in Salina, Ks. which is where we are from. The photos are from the day of delivery and a few of the pinstriping as well. I have a few questions about an engine problem we are having but will ask them later. Thanks for letting us join in this very special group.
