1952 Mercury Convertible Ohio

A friend bought an early 1960's mild custom 1952 Mercury recently and would like to know a bit more ...more

about the history of the car. So perhaps somebody one here will recognize the car. The car was Customized in 1961 most likely in Ohio. The picture below who's the car with the original owner in with 1968 Ohio plates. The car was last licensed in 1984, then parked in a garage where it was recently "found".
The Customizing on the car is very tastefully and well done. All body work was done in lead as far as the current owner can tell. 1956 Buick taillights where used in reshaped taillights. The trunk was removed of all the chrome, the hood was cleaned up, the hood scoop lengthened, made functional and reshaped at the front. The grille/front bumper where modified with 1954 Mercury parts, and the rear bumper comes from a 1954 Mercury as well. The rear quarters where reshaped, or possibly replaced with 1953 Mercury units. The door handles shaved and the side trim removed. The engine comes from a 1956-57 T-Bird. Anybody has seen this car before, or knows more about it?
