Dick Jackson of Advanced Custom Paints in Compton, California gave Ron Dragoo's 1954 Mercury a maroon and silver scallop paint job in the mid 1950s. It was Dick who originally owned and built the Merc. Ron spotted it during the build, and decided that he just had to have it. Sometime after Ron purchased the Merc from Dick, he had Dick repaint the car for him. Ron told Bill Layman that he took the car to Dick and gave him a free hand as to the color. There was no discussion about doing the scallops, so when he picked it up he was surprised and shocked to see that Dick had added the scallops. He wasn't very happy at first, but learned to like them after a while. Photo from The Ron Dragoo Photo Collection, provided by Bill Layman.
