An older Design Studio model, with headlights that are slightly yellowed with age (probably epoxy). Still a nice model.

I really like these Design Studio Mercury models. I was fortunate to get this one a few years ago.

The Design Studio '55 Mercury in persimmon and white has been eluding me for years. It is my holly grail.

Harv, I have the same one as you. I have had this model for many years and have always thought of it as a great addition to my collection.

Curtis and Ken - May I use your photos in hobbyDB? A pic of the box end would be appreciated if you have the time.

Harv-these photos are not of my car. These were photos of one that was sold on Ebay a number of years ago. I had them in an album for reference. It is a color I hope to get.

Here's my USA Model 1955 Mercury. I don't see where is the difference for this Mercury between the DS and this USA Model? It has been always intrigueted me.

@michel-lemieux Michel - I'd like to post this to hobbyDB. Do you have the USA number, or better yet, a pic of the box label?

@mg-harv Harvey, I took the pic of the Mercury on the older site of Patrick Lacombe (Toys for Collectors). If i remember well the label number was a USA -23 but i am not totally sure? I have been fortunate to get that one at only 149usd.
