Tagged: 1955 Floor Pans
Are the front floor pans and toe sections the same as a 1955 Ford? If not does anyone know where I can get correct replacement floor pans for the Mercury?
I checked on C & G Early Ford parts website and they only show one parts listing for ’55-’56 floor pans so that would make me assume that the Fords and Mercs are the same. Give them a call to find out.

<div>Thought I’d provide an answer to a question on the IMOA forums if you could pass the info on since I am not a member.</div>
<div>Virgil & Sue Klein asked if front floor pans are the same as 1955 Ford.</div>
<div>Here’s my answer:</div>
<div>Ford and Mercury floor pans for 1955 and 1956 are common up to the
weld seam where they join to the firewall, but Mercury extends the floor
before sloping up at the toe section where the Ford slopes up
<div>If you need to replace this entire section, which is typical, you
will find that nobody is reproducing Mercury floor pans, so you most
likely will either need to find used or improvise using the Ford panel.
This isn’t too difficult, you just need to add a strip of flat sheet
metal in. It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this so I can’t
remember exactly how much width there is, I think it’s 2-3 inches.</div>
For anyone interested, I have also discovered that the stamped pattern in the front passenger side toe board of the 1955 Mercury is different than that of a 1955 Ford. A Ford has a stamping resembling an upside down V while my Dad’s 1955 Montclair has something that looks more like a reversed capital N. I am hopefully going to be able to locate floors and toeboard sections from a rustfree 1955 Mercury for replacement since no one is making the specific Mercury reproductions. I have contacted some of the western salvage yards in Hemmings and may have a line on some although they are rather expensive. Anyone have any suggestions who to contact?
