    1959 Mercury Montery front brake drums

    misterc9, So, this Mercury has the optional 3" brakes, but they were offered for the front only ? The front brake drums are the 5X5 bolt pattern and the rear is 5X4.5 ? Or does this car have 3" brakes all around ?

    My dad (b. 1915, d.2013) with his 1941 Nash and in his USMC uniform during WWII. The best dad a son could have.

    1959 Mercury Montery front brake drums

    future, i received an email from Kanter Auto Products in Boonton, NJ. I thought about looking for 3" wide drums for your car as they had an advertisement for brake parts. Yes, they do offer a 3" wide drum for your car. But, you should contact them to make sure the drum has five studs on a 5" bolt circle.

    1959 Mercury Montery front brake drums

    NAPA Auto Parts shows brake shoes in the 2 1/2" and 3" widths for a 1959 Mercury Monterey, but only drums in the 2 1/2" width.

    1959 Mercury Montery front brake drums

    future, I looked on Mac's Antique Auto Parts website and they show two different brake shoes; one is 11 1/32" by 2 1/2" wide and the other is 11 1/32" by 3" wide. This makes me wonder if you have a "police" or "taxi" or "heavy duty" brake option on your Mercury. Or is your Mercury a station wagon ?

    1936 Plymouth P2 De luxe spark plugs

    Carlton, NAPA has (among others) Autolite #295 - non-resistor plugs or #306 - resistor plugs. I have used both of these in my car with no problems. I'm pretty sure these and other brands are available at most auto parts stores.
  7. Carlton, Beautiful car. It is just stunning !!!!

    1938 DeSoto C/L MN $6,000

    Not my favorite (favourite). I lean towards medium-dark blue or medium-dark green. This car appears to be a good buy.

    50's ? Plymouth hubcap?

    Roy, I have seen these painted two different ways (if painted), but I think your item is correct for a 1951 or 1952 Plymouth Cambridge or Concord model. Photos show the caps on 1951 Concords.

    Unidentified Ford bumper guard, new but what year?

    Pete, This is as close as I could come to a match...1939 Lincoln Zephyr front center bumper guard.

    Can you identify this 1912-era vehicle?

    What is that draped over the steering wheel ? Looks to be leather-like....
