Yes it is !   Count me in as a fan of these Mercs; the best looking post-war custom IMHO.

Actually I do, although I'm not sure who Kate is.

The Merc was built for Al Glickman by Gil Ayala, the back of the car was highly modified to accept the 1952 Olds rear fenders. The interior and chopped padded top was done by Chavez, and the car was painted "Devil Red maroon". The car is actually a 49 and not a 51.

It was featured on the cover of the May 1953 issue of "Hop Up" magazine.

Al had sold the car to Tommy Kamifuji by the time the magazine hit the stands.
