1939 mercury convertible coupe custom

Third Floor- History

To create this car’s sleek look, its customizer Rulon McGregor lowered the height of both the windshield and side windows and replaced the original folding convertible top with a removable Carson padded top. The chassis was also lowered, the side mirrors and trunk handle removed and the stock bumpers replaced. Though minimal, such strategic modifications gave the car a youthful character not present in the factory-built version.
