Pat Fords 57 Mercury clone was the first picture i had seen myself.
I found my truck really close to my home in East Los angeles.
I have own a couple of 1957-1960 Ford Trucks but never a Mercury Truck.

hiwy50- that is a truley beautiful truck and yes I am jealous.
Michigan Rick- That would be greatly appreciated I really thank you.
Just a note thanks for this thread Rick it helps my addiction to these trucks. I just wish I was up north so I could stumble upon a treasure and own a real Merc. The good thing about the clone is I am not afraid to use it/abuse it.

Jim G.... I have a 56 M100

I was born in 56 and have had alot of 56's but have decided to truckrod this one. Alot of the others have been real nice but this is the one I'm doing for my birthday truck
Rick, please post pictures. I would love to see pictures from your Canadian club, pictures of your trim pieces and especially pictures of your truck. Seeing pictures of Mercury trucks and related articles really makes my day. I am very happy that you started this thread.

I myself love the 47 Mercs and have been looking for one for quite awhile. But that 1960 one you posted has me considering one of them too. I wonder if they had the big window option as well?
I work with a guy who has a 47 Merc that's sitting up on blocks in his back yard, not sure if he would part with it. If I was closer to completion on my panel I might pressure him.

Jim............. Go to Welcome to the SOCP - Southern Ontario Classic Pickups serving the Classic Ford and Mercury Truck Enthusiast (1905-1966) and search around...lots of good pics.

I'll get up to the 90's soon and get a camera and do some posting.

I was gathering information to Come out with Reproduction type seat covers in original styles offered.
Do you guys think there would be a market for original styled seat covers?

Things haven't been running very smoothely for my wife & I w/ our Mortgage, health issues & 'Puter/ADSL problems, so I've not been able to do a follow up w/ you on this matter.
Yes, I believe that there's a market for repro seat-covers for the "Orphan Years" Trucks.

DATA Plate

Thank you for responding, sorry to hear about situation hope Things get better for you and your Wife. I found my Data plate on the drivers side door jam are below the Door catch. It is attached with four screws and the Glove box door is Blank with no traces of it having any holes. I found the Stamped Vin # on the Driver front section by the Shock Mount area. When i First purchased the Truck i was not 100% sure it was a Mercury Truck- But When i cleaned out the Front I-Beam and found a C in Front of the Casting # i was convinced. I will post some pictures in my album today so you guys can take a look. I am missing the Tailgate and hubcaps. I do have the Side badges and the Front M E R C U R Y Letters for the hood.

No pics in your gallery.

A Canadian VIN is totally different than the US VIN (thru 1965).

The US VIN begins with F10, the Canadian VIN does not.

A letter C on a front axle doesn't mean it's a Mercury only part.

1957 F100's & M100's used the same front axle, but...it's not the same as 1958/60 F100/M100's used.

TAAK-3010-A is the 1957 F/M100's front axle casting number.

1957 I Beam Casting number

Part # 75 in Hollander book casting number TAAK3010A. FordTr. '57F100
Part # 76 in Hollander Book Casting number TAAK3010B FordTr. '58-60
I wonder why it would have a C in front of the Casting Number.
I can't figure out how to Post a picture.

Those are the actual Ford part numbers in red.

Why is the C there?

I looked in the parts catalog, there's no reference, but it could be the manufacturers code.

If you need to look in the parts catalogs, I'm not that far away, so you're welcome to come by and take a look-see.

If you attend the Chapter GTG's, I can bring them along, as I usually attend the all GTG's.

Sorry, no Edsel parts catalogs, but I have dang near everything else.

btw: I don't have a gallery, so I'm klewless.

Glad this thread got everyone going.

hiwy50...nice truck...love the ghost flames. color works for me.

cloichina...I didn't give a hoot about Mercs....but the more I've been hanging with my Canadian friends it's got me Mercmerized....My Dad if he were around would love mine since we always had Merc cars when I was growing up so he'd like a Merc truck. (I guess that could be last year by the way I'm growing up!)


Michigan Rick

keep the Merc pics coming.
