1940 Mercury coupe restyled by Rob Ida Concepts and Ida Automotive for Jack Kiely. When Rob Ida took on the project he wasn't interested in doing another schoolbook traditional Mercury custom. Thinking out of the box, the top on Jack's Merc was chopped and converted into a 3-Window coupe. After the chop, new, longer rear fenders were made from scratch.
