I have seen the one that the Phantom from Albury used to have. It had a chevy in it from memory
Also Bob Trevan up here in Lismore, who is a fanatical Ford Collector, told me that he had 2 46-48 Mercury utes at one stage in a wrecking yard, but they went to the crusher many years ago. Apparently they were very rusty.
There was a nice LHD coupe at Canungra recently, but there are not a lot of those era Mercury of any body style left as you say.
Hi Graeme, Allmost a dead ringer. Wonder if it started life as a ute.
....Dead ringer eh?.....a little graveside humour, eh Leanne? ;D......most of the Hearses were based on Utes , probably because they were usually cheaper than Sedans ,but also because they came with the open drive gearbox and low ratio open drive diff , made it easy to extend the driveshaft ,unlike with the torque tube driveline on the regular cars.....
