this car confuses me so much to look at, makes me think its a 58, a 57, a 59, and a 56 all at once!
Yeah its got a lot of 57-59 stuff on it. Had to keep up with the new car styling trends.

Another of my before and after rides
All original steel, as found 33 years ago.
Engine,transmission, 9"rear,dropped axle,walker radiator,glass,gauges, new wheels & tires and a recent interior, exterior hasn't changed. HRP

When l first got my 36 l had a bet with a mate l would finish the build before he finished building his house, we estimated 2 years
Some 9 years later we have both just finished our projects.
Some great examples here, but Ned5049's Merc is the winner so far, at least in my opinion.
