The Solar Scene
1950 Mercury custom built by Winfield's Custom Shop in 1963. The chopped and channeled Mercury was modified with a 1953 Mercury windshield. The most noticeable features on the Solar Scene is the sculpted wheel wells with stainless inserts, dual frenched headlights molded into the front fenders, and a handmade grille. The car was also equipped with custom-built seats that swung out with power-operated doors. Gene Winfield painted the Solar Scene in a candy bronze with faded edges around the wheel wells. It was powered by a heavily chromed Buick Nailhead.
Rod & Custom magazine called the Solar Scene "one of the most original custom renditions the '50 Mercury.
