A 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 noteable features on the Solar Scene is the sculpted wheelwells 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 the power operated doors.

Gene Winfield painted the Solar Scene in a candy bronze with faded edges around the wheelwells. The Solar Scene was powered by a heavily chromed Buick Nailhead.

Rod & Custom magazine called it "one of the most original custom renditions the '50 Mercury.
