Solar Scene



This is the "Solar Scene" built by Gene Winfield in 1963. "Rod & Custom" magazine called it "one of the most original custom renditions the '50 Mercury." Winfield's modern styling touches blended into this classic, reinvented the way customizers would build cars in the future.

This radical 1950 Mercury was chopped, channeled, and stripped of all trim and emblems. Quad headlights were molded into the front fenders and new wheel well openings were created and accented by stainless steel. New front and rear valances were formed and flat, chrome bumpers were added. A roof vent was cut in just above the rear window and stainless steel trim was recessed into the roof and down the trunk lid. A fully chromed Pontiac engine was installed into a white painted engine compartment to help show it off. The car was finished off with a flawless, candy orange paint job with red highlights around the new wheel wells. The car was well received and ushered in a new benchmark for customizing in the 60's.
