I am fortunate to be the new caretaker of the John D'Agostino designed custom 53 Mercury Monterey called Royal Tahitian. What I know so far...it was built in the early 80's in early 60's custom style. We believe it spent much time as a show car/trailer queen. If you have knowledge and/or photos of the Royal Tahitian, please share. I will get some photos up later. It is raining now.
