I need help finding a basic lead sled for a father son project
I am trying to find a basic late 40's, early 50's Merc sedan to build ovet the course of about 10 years as a father son project to be given to him when he gets his license in about 13 years. I am just putting out feelers at the moment as I am still in Japan, but plan to move to the Richmond, VA area in spring of next year, at which point my search will begin in earnest. I just want a REALLY CHEAP set-up, it doesn't even need to have an engine, no less run, as long as the frame is in good shape, that's the only thing that matters

They might have a car in their scrap yard, but these guys are also a good source for parts.

the early 50's mercs come up for sale frequently yet most of them are allready sledded out. finding a project is difficult, especially a rust free one, I would plan on doing at least some rust repair unless you luck out and find a dry western barn car. its not out of reason though, keep searching, sounds fun. alot of cars are coming out of the woodwork in this economy, especially project cars since people can not afford to finish them and need to move them.
