The Ron Dragoo Photo Collection
After building a tribute build to Duane Steck's 1954 Chevrolet, and restoring Fred Rowe's 1951 Mercury convertible, an old Barris Kustom, Bill Layman of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania decided in the 2000s to restyle a 1954 Mercury. Inspiration for the build came from the Dick Jakson-Ron Dragoo Mercury. The build was completed in 2005. In 2006 The Rodder's Journal ran a featured story on the Merc in The Rodder's Journal 31. Ron Dragoo saw the story about Bill's Mercury, and decided to contact Bill. Ron sent Bill photos of the car as it sat while he owned it, along with some other interesting photos he had taken back in the days. Unfortunately Ron passed away in 2012, but Bill has decided to share Ron's photos with Kustomrama.
