1949 Ford Other Pickups Mercury description
The body is in great shape with minimal rust. There is some rust in the floorboards but the cab corners are solid. The fenders are very good for one of these 48-52 Ford/Mercury trucks with very minimal rust. All of the Mercury specific emblems and grille are in excellent shape. All Mercury hubcaps are present including the spare as is the Mercury tailgate which is very rare to not have a grain flap cut into it. It is also unusual to find one of these without a hoist fitted to the bed. Some of the glass is broken but it is easily replaced as it is all reproduced. The wooden bed floor is mostlyrotted away. The front bumper is bent but easily replaced as they are the same as a Ford. There are very few dents, the body is remarkably straight and the doors and hood close and latch smoothly like they should. The interior is complete and in nice condition for an original unrestored truck, the window winders and door handles still function smoothly. The original seat upholstery isn't even that bad and still usable. The Mercury specific dash trim and steering wheel center are in excellent condition. The original Flathead V8 has parts missing and is seized. It was parked and taken off the road over 30 years ago due to needing a replacement motor. Overall this is a remarkably complete and original example and by far the nicest looking 48-50 Mercury truck thatI have ever seen, it really does look great.
This is a very rare truck. It does require restoration work but is an excellent opportunity for a unique project.
Due to the much smaller Canadian market, Ford of Canada only sold approximately one tenth as many trucks as Ford did in the US and around two thirds of those were Ford's leaving the remaining third to be Mercury's. So very few of these trucks where produced and it is becoming much harder for us to source nice original and complete examples such as this. Due to Canada's harsh climate only a handful remain today.

Paperwork accompanying vehicle
All of our vehicles come withfour pieces of paperwork required by the DMV to Title your new vehicle in your home State:
1. An invoice, including vehicle description, VIN #, your details and our details
2. A Canadian Title Document
3.Completed & Stamped US Customs Paperwork Form 7501
4. Completed & Signed DOT HS-7 Form
All of our vehicles are sourced from Canada. We then store them just north of the border until they are sold. Once sold we take the vehicles across the border to ourpremises in North Dakota for you to collect, or for your preferred shipper to collect for you.
The process of moving the vehicle across the borderto North Dakota is taken care of by us and fully paid for by us. You will incurabsolutely no further charges above and beyond what youbid for the vehicle.
There is certain border paperwork that is necessary for this process and for that we use a professional customs broker by the name of Cole International USA Inc. They operate with complete confidentiality and any of your personal information, that we supply them with for this process, is treated as such.
Should you wish to have your new (old) vehicle shipped, then let us know and we can put you in contact with our preferred shippers. Theseshippers are familiar with us, our inventory and our location. They are also very reasonably priced.
If you decide to use an alternative shipper, please make them aware if the vehicle is a 'non-runner' and, therefore, will require a winch for loading and unloading. We are not responsible if you book a shipper who is incapable of loading the vehicle.
Due to the nature of what we do, we are often on the road in search of new vehicles, so please be sure to make us aware of your shipping/collection arrangements ahead of time, so that we can arrange to be there to meet you or your shipper.

who we are and what we do
We are two brothersthat seek out original trucks and cars fromall acrossCanada specializing in vehicles from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
We started heading North to source these vehicles several years ago due to the severe lack of such vehicles in the US in recent times due to our huge car culture. Most American barn finds have long been found and tampered with by several owners yet North of the border there still seems to be an abundance of good solid original vehicles waiting to be brought back to life.
We make these great vehicles available to the US market by importing them into the US and providing all required paperwork to acquire a Clear US Title in your own name in your home State.
We also specialize insourcing Mercuryand Fargo trucks and have successfully imported and found new homes for dozens of fine original examples.
We are passionate about finding the best thatthere is and understand that our customers want to see automobiles that have not been tampered with; the more original, the better.
Our inventory is regularly updated, as new finds are unearthed. If there is something specific that you are looking for, then let us know and we'd be happy to see if we can help.
The business we conduct is straightforward and honest. Whether you're looking for something that'sall original, a starting point for a restoration project orsolid bones for a custom build, Bison Brothers will deliver.
