    Hard to believe but I think this is the same car as above as previously discussed here on the HAMB. @stanlow69 and @OG lil E put a lot of the detective work in on figuring this out. And it doesn't look like either of these two pics now as it has a 54 Mercury front bumper/grill. See page 23 and 24 of the "What Ever Happened To ..." thread for more info.

    @54delray That is the same Merc?? I like the first version but love the version I saw at the Spectacular. I was debating about doing the bumper treatment to my Merc.

    In a Purrfect world both Mercurys would exist. Thanks for the Merc history lesson.

  12. I am not usually a big radical custom guy when it come to Mercs but I think I like the Quad headlighted version better.

    It's got some kind of different side trim on it and it's lowered, and has baby moon caps on it, I suppose it could be considered custom, the extremely mild kind.

    it’s very mild Kustom. I think I’ve posted original Mercs on this thread before. Not really concentrating on Custom pics just kool ones.

  23. Did it sell? I don't remember it being there on Sunday.
    The other (2-tone) Mercury was still there...

    I don't know. If I was looking for a Mercury I would have bought it..
