This is Yat Ming's release of the cool-looking '57 Mercury, in this case a white convertible in their Turnpike Cruiser line from that year,

It looks so much better without the continental kit.

ERTL did some pretty good detailing, too.

And using this one, here is another variation off the workbench long ago.  A replica of a car my uncle and aunt had in the era.

And in 1957 Mercury was the chosen pace car for the Indy 500. Ertl made a version, but I prefer the Minimarque.

@mg-harv 

Did Minimarque ever make this car without the pace care graphics?

@ed-davis Yes, I found some courtesy of Google. A lilac and black version was particularly striking.
