I don't know that the Mercury was the original motor for this car, but if that is the case, then retaining it would be correct.
What would you consider to be most appropriate in this case?
I suppose a more precise identification of the actual car will help, once I know that, I will follow up.
A few quick photos of the car can be found here http://imgur.com/a/FblJT#0

I'm a member. There are a lot of members actually, though only a few are active at posting. Still, if you send photos and want to identify something, SOMEONE there will probably recognize it.
HMod was the "tinkerer" class in the 50's-60's. No other class allowed for so much variation and invention, especially at such a low cost of entry. You could race everything from a near-stock production car, to a wildly modified production car, to a modified racecar, to a pure 100% homebuilt. Accordingly, "mystery" H-Mods show up all the time.
