1950 Mercury Custom

1950 Mercury Custom

Concept for this came from an old chopped and sectioned 1951 Mercury that I saw regularly at Kit Carson Park in the Escondido, CA area during the 1977 time frame. Basically the guy built a radical custom but kept all the stock factory trim upon it with a simple dark blue paintjob. He ran a set of (then current era) new Lincoln Mark V wheels instead of mag wheels or traditional wheel caps with big whitewalls. This is just a salute to the clean custom he built with a few enhancements of my own.
