It has been a while since we’ve had any updates from the bowels of the Savage Speed Garage. I guess all that good, West Coast living is taking priority over building rods!
The last time we checked in on the ’49 Merc, the body had been painted and work was set to begin on the interior. Now the time has come to motivate the monster, and this is where Savage Speed lives up to its name. That big honkin’ lump you see above is actually a ’49 Cadillac mill with some pretty hip history. In another lifetime, this big boy was under the hood of a Bonneville Salt Flats racer!
We’ll keep you up to date when the videos start rolling in of the Merc in action!
