I’m trying to work out why this loses me?. Incredible workmanship and build quality. I love the colour, engine looks incredible. I love art deco. . . ?? I think it’s what happenswhen old cars and way too much money collide. Put it the same category as the Delahaye recreation. Incredible, but. . .
The team is working on the rear window trim, which will be similar as the windshield. (The stock 1940 Mercury does not have rear window trim, just rubber) This rear window is made from custom curved glass that they wanted to look stock.
That looks great from this angle. The flush fit skirts might be where I go to eventually. My earlier criticism possibly read harsher than I really meant. Perhaps we should reserve judgement till it comes together further. Certainly unique and pushing new boundaries is always more dangerous , challenging and controversial than sitting in cosy warm corners just copying and emulating what was done previously. I’m sure it will be a little more Buck Rogers than we are used to. . . But so was the Phantom Corsair.
Looking forward to seeing more.
