Pass on it . Really it needs welding, metal fab and money for expensive parts. There is no savings in starting with a car just cause its cheap . Plus this model is going to be a bitch to get parts for. Check out the Facebook site 613 vintage cars . there is a mid 60s Impala on there now for $2500 that has been there awhile and it should be fairly close to you. Buy something you can drive and work on at the same time , not something that's going to take 10yrs and all your money before you can even drive it. Ed

Well I'd say that's a better car than the Packard & it's Canadian to BOOT I'd dump the "tea kettle" carb, & either put a 57 intake & Edlebrock Carb or spacer / adapter & later carb but that's just me!!! Just depends on price & whether he can afford it????

  A "B" intake shouldn't be that hard to find. Don't forget to change the distributer to a 57 or newer. They are available at NAPA in the US, so you may to get one here too.

Auto City Classics list a tank for a 1956 Mercury for $189.00 and that's probably US dollars, but they are available.
