Sitting outside for 17years


This is our 1954  Mercury Sunvalley.  Over the next several month we will be re-working the body and putting a new rat rod on the streets.  The car was once ready for paint but like many projects the funds ran out and the car was placed on the back burner.

The body was removed from the frame 15 years ago and all the bushings and brakes were replaced.   While the car was out getting rewired it sat outside with a tarp over it.  The moisture under the tarp started the surface rust on the car.

  1. Dang dude, that’s an awesome starting point. We’ve got a second-owner all-original running around our town and they’re real beauties when they’re done right. Can’t wait to see how you do that thing up!
