This is my old 40 Merc that was originally built in Portland Or. in the mid 50's.  I redid it in the late 70's, from a hulk I found abandoned in a SLC parking garage, not knowing it was the same car that was featured in the March 1958 issue of Hot Rod magazine.

Chopped, hardtopped, lowered, skirts, 41 Stude taillights, Appleton spotlights, etc. Drove that sucker everywhere.

Great story, Mick!  Who would have thought that an abandoned old car had such a cool history!

 a small shop, Hilltop Hot Rods, is restoring a 55 Custom,  he  is in search of a pair  of lenses for the rear lights,   they are specific for a 1958 Mercury Parklane.

Extrmely rare,  but somebody might know where to find them....he has tried most of the usual places and is offering $100 reward to the person who leads him to a set

So if you do contact Hilltop and ask for Steve Stewart
