The truck was then lathered in correct 1956 Mercury ‘Saffron Yellow’ paint, which really pops and was the perfect color for this truck. Getting the perfect stance was also extremely important, so the stock suspension was removed, and reversed eye mono leaf-springs were installed on the front & rear, along w/ a 4” drop I-Beam up front. This lowered the truck a total of 7” up front and 4” on the rear, which created just the right fixed stance, w/out having to use air-bags.
If you have been searching for a one-of-a-kind pickup that can win ‘First Place’ awards at any car event, but one that can also be driven and enjoyed to the fullest, you will want to take a very close look at this gorgeous 1956 Mercury Kustom Pickup!
