This is Genes personal ride in the early fifties. It
started out as a -50 Mercury Monteray with sidetrim (-51
Lincoln Lido (baby Lincoln (Merc body) but turned the
other way. Gene bought brand new -51 Merc rear fenders
from the dealership and grafted them on to his -50 Merc
and he added '54 Mercury taillights to it. The grill is
made of -51 Merc option bumperguards cut and welded
togeter. Bullits on the -50 Merc front fender are '53
Merc bumperguards. Headlights are -52-53 Merc rims !
Bullit in the 54 Mercury hubcap seem to be -51 Ford grill
bullits. Front fender flair is -52-54 Ford or Merc and
works nicely togheter with the peaked -51 Merc skirts.
Stock -51 Merc rear bumper. A great 3"x5" chop and
ofcause removed driprail together with a lovely set of 112
Appletons to top it off is an unbeatable recipe for a
truly traditional built custom.
