    Hard one to chop, harder to improve by chopping.
    The two-tone paint is equally eye-catching.
    Congrats on a super job!

    I own two 58 Edsels and a stock original 55 Merc Montclair two door hardtop. The 55 and 56 Montclairs are factory swoopy, but I have to say this one looks cool. Subtle as hell, compliments the car's styling
    Well done !!

    Are those tailights installed correctly?

    The chop and car is beautiful.

    I drove a 56 Merc Montclair 2 dr hardtop as my HS car back in the 70's. I've never seen one chopped that I liked ,until now. Well done!!
    Those look like the stock tail lights that have been remounted and angled 19Fordy. A nice custom touch.

    A while ago I saw a pic of a group of cars that included a chopped and sectioned 56 Merc. Can anybody provide a pic or tell us anything about this car.
    ?

    I like them angled like that. I was looking at this yesterday trying to figure out how you had extended the quarters o_O I'm glad you explained how you did it.
