RealRides of WNY - 1954 Mercury

This 1954 Mercury Custom sport coupe features a few mild custom touches which set it off from its showroom stock kin. The headlights look to have been tunneled; the black paint on the front bumper, which gave it the illusion of having “teeth,” has been removed; the trim on the hood scoop, as well as that around the top of the grille cavity, has also been deleted along with the bumper guards; while out back all of the chrome trim (including the trunk lock) has been removed. Overall it presents a much cleaner look than the stock version (seen below on a Monterey which graced the brochure cover)That front end also now shows just how much the Merc was based on the Ford. We saw this one last year in Wellsville at a car show in Island Park.
