The top was chopped 3 inches and the gorgeous padded top created by the Carson Top Shop. At the front a new grille opening was created using exhaust tubing which was molded to the surounding metal. The top bar was molded to the hood which was cut down to the grille opening. The grille was made up from '51 Henry J, '52 Kaiser and '53 mercury grille pieces. The parking lights are '50 Studebaker. Scoopes where formed in the lower rear quarters in fron tof the rear wheel opening. Two '53 Mercury teeth where used in the scoop and a cut down '51 Mercury fender skirt was fitted. All corners where rounded and front and rear gravel pans where molded in. At the rear a set of round '53 Pontiac taillights where set into reshaped windsplits. At the front a set of '53 Mercury headlights where molded into the front fenders which wher extended 2 inches. Front and rear '51 Ford bumpers where smoothed and shaved and fitted with '53 Kaiser bumper guards. At the rear the exhause was routed thru the bullets of the guards. The side trim was made up of '52 Buick Riviera Sweepspear and '53 Oldsmobile side trim pieces. The car was painted a deep fuchia-orchid metallic paint.

Jerry Yatch '40 Mercury convertible
"This Merc was originally built by Dick Rheaume of Dearborn, Michigan as it appeared in the first Detroit Autorama in 1953. I purchased the car in late 1954 and proceeded to do a complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration. All new metal work and paint was done by Bill Hines at that time. This car has always been attributed to me because of its high show profile in the mid to late 50's and its extraordinary fit and finish provided by Bill Hines in 1955. My thanks and appreciation go out to Harry McAuliffe and the current owners, the Meyers, for their outstanding contributions. I missed the car at Pebble Beach and would love to once more sit behind the wheel and reflect. Regards, Jerry Yatch"
