Looking at a 1951 Mercury Monterey

Seller says it has a Nova clip- what is this?


#2

I think the seller is referring to a Nova subframe being installed where the original Mercury suspension once resided. I have seen several of these conversions using Nova, Vega and Mustang II suspensions in place of the originals on older cars and trucks. Why not call the seller and ask?

MM’s right, they do this to get an independent front suspension under the car, along with ease of installing a Chevy smallblock V8 - does it have that?
