It depends mostly on the condition of your 41 Merc. You have a classic automobile there, if it's decent it wouldn't cross my mind for a second, use the original frame and put a MII front end in it.

Thanks for that info...I've been looking at them MII set ups...cost comparison vs frame swap,
(although, I know you are not for F-swaps...read quite a few of your comments...hahaha!) the cost is possibly higher that what the shop is offering for the swap?
I'm really on the fence with this decision?

Use one of MANY Mustang II style front ends available so you don't have to cut the rad support and inner fenders all up. They are much better and don't cost all that much once you think about rebuilding the clip you would put use instead.

|455olds||I have a '42 Chevy Aerosedan and I used a '74 Nova clip. It drives awesome but was not real cheap to do correctly. I would do a Chassis Engineering bolt in M2 crossmember if I did it again just to not cut the front frame. The rear of the Nova was the right width for me. I used a 455 Olds in miy car and there is still room to service the engine so your engine options should be good to|

I weld all mine in,, No bolt's and no spacer's..

You can mount a camero sub frame under it. It all unbolt from the car. You need a spacer between the frame & the susp. You need the steering box to. I installed two of these They work out very nice. No hacking of your stock frame

Those old chevies had a "hat frame", formed sheet metal inverted U fastened to a bottom flat. It takes some carefull inspection to verify the condition, possibility of rusted thin spots, If the frame is in good shape you can buy the Bolt In kits for Mustang II front and various bolt in rear ends. Usually new rear springs or a pin relocator plate.

No frame swap..
Get the right Mustang II front end for it...You won't be sorry in the long run..
