Default Re: 42- 2dr sedan chassis

I had a 42 standard business coupe.

With the welded cross member.
As i understand it is was use a short while, and then dropped for the riveted version, much cheaper to manufacture.
Less parts and less work=cheaper.

I have the pics in higher resolution.

Some more photos for you. The rusty one is an Aussie 46 coupe ute chassis and the cleaned up one which was blasted and sanded is a US 47 Mercury. Both are welded in the same areas.
Out of interest I have also included one of the hand brake set up on the ute chassis as they have parallel rear springs.
