This beautiful 1950 Mercury Coupe has been to SEMA twice. Both SEMA appearances showed the car in Bare Metal during the fabrication stages of the build. If you had the chance to view this car before paint then you know how much prep work was done to get it to look like it does. Everything about this car has been thought out, designed and then fabricated.
