just to see what it looked like. 

As found, with Sam Barris at the wheel:

49 Mercuy Coupe   Sam Barris   PS (1)

With bumper guards and spot lights removed:

49 Mercuy Coupe   Sam Barris   PS (2)

Jacks choice:

49 Mercuy Coupe   Sam Barris   PS (5a)

With less top chop:

49 Mercuy Coupe   Sam Barris   PS (2+)

I know I'm violating one of the nicest custom cars ever, and one of the best chops I've seen on a 49 - 50 Mercury, but it's just photo editing, not sheet metal alteration.

Any comments?

Enjoy!

I'm not really a fan of the extreme chop as to my eye it often ruins/distorts the lines of the car.  Terry, I'm thinking a chop half way between that shown and your rendition would be about right to me.  I do like the less cluttered look but of course that wasn't so much the rage back in the day.

@jack-dodds: Did another edit as you suggested and inserted it in the photo stream. You may be right.
