1949 - 1950 Mercury Custom Model Kit


1949 1950 custom mercury


An AMT 1949 - 1950 Mercury kit. This kit has a lot of extra stuff, primarily custom parts, some of which I used here. The front bumper is flipped upside down, I liked it better that way visually.

The skirts came with the kit. I am not sure about the white walls, tires, and rims, I may have added them from another kit or the parts box.

This kit also included two engines, one of them being a Chrysler 413, the other a "stock" Ford Flathead V8.

The paint is a hardware store color. Which at the time, I really liked, I think I did several 50's cars in this unusual purple color.

This is one of those kits that has been around forever, and includes a lot of extra parts you don't see in modern tooling for model kits. For this build, I used some of them, but the overall body is stock.

Revell has since released their own Mercury kit, with a chopped top.

Below is a real 1:1 Mercury that has been customized quite a bit.
