    No pic, but there was a nearly stock one that managed to fit '58 Chevy lights (horizontally).

    Here's one (from carnut.com.)

    The "Golden Penny" comes to mind. (From the Bill Johnson Collection on Rikster's.)

    While the '58 Lincoln's are neat...you might also consider '61 Chrysler and its cousin-'61 DeSoto quads...sorry, don't have any pix...

    So everyone that puts Merc teeth in their grill should just buy a Merc? I thought this site was about customs and hot rods...

    Yeah, that was supposed to be 57 Vette teeth in your Merc. I was multi tasking (quite poorly I might add) at the time. Really should proof read before hitting submit:D
