I have no info on the wheels but have to comment on just how much that car looked like mine the day I brought it home. My wife saw the picture and thought it was a picture of my 48.

My Vintique hinges and springs will not hold the hood up in the open position on my 48 Merc. Maybe they are made for Fords? Maybe the Merc's longer hood is just to heavy? I don't know but they...

Re: Fender Skirts

The skirts on my 48 Merc are away from the body like yours and as John said it is due to the gasket. That is a good thing because the paint on the fenders does not get scratched etc.
