This 20+ year build was worth the wait and incorporates the best custom modifications of the era executed in the utmost fashion. Could this be the quintessential kustom Merc? You decide!
Our third feature was actually destined to be a magazine feature over 34 years ago. The photos were taken, the text was written, but for whatever reason it never saw print. That is, until now! Check out Pete Marriott's wild full custom '40 Ford coupe. Circa 1986!We did manage to get one show in for event coverage this year. The Detroit Autorama was one of a few shows that was lucky enough to happen before the key chain hit the fan. Check out some of the cool customs that were featured.
We love custom history here at Kustoms Illustrated and in this issue we have two articles that showcase our beloved past. Part Three of the '80s kustom resurgence focuses on '49-'51 Mercurys, and we purposely concentrate on some of the lesser-known varieties from the 1980s in "Where Were You in '82? - Merc Madness"
