The top has been chopped and the B pillar’s have been leaned. The chrome surround that goes around the rear quarter glass and the doors has been made from one solid piece of brass then chrome plated. This is unlike the typical stainless steel that people use when they chop a Merc. The one-piece brass is expensive to do but well worth it. The skirts have been completely reworked and flush mounted with a flare on the bottom. The hood corners have been rounded, the grill cavity has been completely molded and the grill has been re-worked. The rear quarters were welded solid directly to the body. The front bumper is stock with the exception of the bumper guards taken from the rear of the original bumper. The rear bumper has a Kaiser over-rider added. The drip rails were shaved. Headlights were molded utilizing 56 Oldsmobile headlight rings that were cut back and peaked. That peak carries through onto the fender and shows up very subtly. Scoops were cut in the hood and molded them in. Door handles were shaved and used a 1946 Lincoln push button instead to have a physical function to open the door. They are well-made and stainless steel. 1956 Cadillac hubcaps were used in the front and rear.
