Street Rodder - - Tech -

This Merc was a well-known cus­tom in the ’70s when it was owned by the late Curly Tre­mayne from Mon­terey. Frank Morawski now owns it and it's been care­fully re­stored to its '77 con­di­tion. Rick Low­man’s Au­to­body han­dled much of the body­work. Richard and Bran­don Glymph re­painted the car, match­ing the paint from an un­ex­posed area of the door­jamb. The Nau­gahyde up­hol­stery and the Rod Pow­ell–painted flo­ral graph­ics on the dash are pre­served orig­i­nal de­tails. The top was chopped 3-1/2 inches in front and 5-1/2 in the back by Pow­ell.

Other mods in­clude the '53 Buick head­lights and tail­lights and a ’63 Buick Wild­cat grille. A Ford 312ci Y-block pro­vides power to the newly re­stored cus­tom.
