Paul Wood's 1949 Mercury Coupe. In 1958 Woody's Merc started popping up in Ken's neighborhood of Richmond Hill, and it was instrumental in sparking Ken’s interest in custom cars in 1958. “The '49 Merc Woody owned when I met him is seen here outside a motel in New Jersey, while Woody and Carol were on their honeymoon. Although no other photos of the car exist, and some modifications can't be seen here, the car had extensive work done to it. The headlights were tunneled, hood and deck were shaved, the outside door handles were removed and replaced by electric solenoids, cruiser skirts were installed, and the car lowered. The most impressive thing was that the coupe was made into a hardtop by removing the vertical posts on the doors and in front of the rear side windows, and new glass cut to fit.” Woody’s Merc was built in the street, in front of his girlfriend's house. Woody had acetylene and oxygen tanks in the trunk of the car that he would roll out whenever he was working on the car. Photo courtesy of Ken Bausert.
