The challenge in building any '40 Merc custom, builder Joe Koenigsmark says, is to not build the Matranga Merc. He built this one for Nick Crea, customizing it with a full-length hood peak, chopped hardtop, and rolled-out lower doors and quarters. The Ford 302 is tied to a C4 trans. A Mustang II frontend and Lincoln Versaille rear were installed underneath the 'sled. It took the Meguiar's Magnificent Masterpiece award.
