    I would like to thank the owner of this Mercury for keeping the car as I and friends who built it to be enjoyed and showed in many shows.

    Further to my other comments about this not being a 49 Chevy. The dash, rear guards, and taillights are all 51 Chevy.
    While I appreciate that the whole tail end is pieced together the 49 guards have more of a teadrop shape and would almost match the buick hood .

    Cheers Kiwi

    If this is a 49 Chevy, how come the front clip and firewall are Pontiac. The Chevy no matter where in the world its made is shorter between the rear of the wheel opening and the door by about six inches. The Chevy has no swage from the headlight back. The chevy front wheel openings are flat topped not round, only Olds and Pontiac had that. Also the Chevy bumper doesn't match the front valance, and that slam panel is unique to the Pontiac. 

    Cheers Kiwi

    Last time I heard of him he was located in Lime Rock, CT.  He used to chase me & my bike off the property, he thought I might scratch one of the cars.   ~   John Buchtenkirch

    When I was in high school in the 1960's, I would see this car on the street in Wichita. I think it was Darryl Starbird' s daily driver, and I thought it was the most beautiful car in the world.

    This car was homely to begin with.....and the redesign is even worse!.  The placement of the rear fender skirts is really bad (I presume the designer couldn't work around the long rear bumper side extensions).

    As of November 2013, this beautiful '57 was owned by John Gervais. When we spoke, he said that it was for sale. This photo was taken at the 2008 Rods and Relics Car Show in Lake Havasu.
