Yes they are. I toured the lower 48 back in 2000 (that's when I found the 62 Uni) and don't remember seeing any Merc's. If possible I am planing a trip through Canada this summer to look for one and to stop and see Moe. I'll be looking for an M-H around a 48 to 50.

I would trade my left AH!! Uni for one

Mercury trucks were on the rare side here to begin with and most were used/beat up and are rusted out so there`s not many good ones left.

Why didn't I notice this thread until now?

I have a 52 M-1 that I inherited from my Dad. When he first acquired it (in 1980) is was also sporting a FORD tailgate. After years of searching he finally found a beat up Merc tailgate:

Lately I have been fooling with reflective tape and I have managed to make a nice pattern for cutting out reflective letters which I stuck to my tailgate. My truck is mostly original and I know that the reflective letters are not, but I figure that they are something of a safety enhancement.

I would be delighted to share my patterns with anyone that would like them.

I have also made patterns for reflectorizing the hood spears.

I`m less than a 70 miles away from him tho it`s a bit of a trip for you.
Do you have any more pictures of your truck and of his place to share?
At first glance I thought I was looking at Fat Fendered Heaven.

To all of the Mercury owners does anyone know of where we can get new or reman M 100 chrome as well the other Merc emblems? Or of a wrecker that specializes in Merc stuff. I have a hood ornament that one of the other POs put on. It kind of resembles a plane. I got it rechromed OUCH.
thanks for any help.
