1950 Mercury Custom from our December 2018 Gift Guide

1950 Mercury Custom from our December 2018 Gift Guide

Our December 2018 holiday catalog featured a beautiful 1950 Mercury Coupe. This custom coupe is finished in candy red paint and we thought it would be a great vehicle to showcase this year. The car is owned by local customer, Don Siglar. This is the 2nd time we have photographed one of Don's cars for our holiday catalog. A few years back, his bright red 1936 Ford graced another holiday catalog cover.

The custom Mercury has been chopped 4" and sectioned 2". Under the hood is a small block Chevy engine. Our friends at Timeless Kustoms in Camarillo took care of the candy rub red paint and white leather tuck and roll interior.

Don gave special thanks on this project goes out to Jason Pecikonis and Eric Thorson at Timeless Kustoms for the craftsmanship. We are thankful that Don wanted to participate in a photo shoot with us a second time around.
