    I own a custom 51 merc that was owned and showed in newyork area, the car was a cover car and featured in atleast a couple of mags in the early 60's when the car was called the passion pit or the mirrored merc. The reason I am posting this is because I am trying to find any history I can on this car wether any one has any pictures, magazines, or even just a story to tell I mean anything.

    The car was owned by a gentleman named Andrew Abbate of Brooklyn NY. and built by Strand auto's shop on 60th street in Manhatten. The car is featured on the cover of the November 1961 Custom Craft mag. and I also know the car took first place in two shows in Westhampton and a first place in a Brooklyn show if you have any other info at all for me i would be greatly thankful.
