Leo Lyons Ultra Modern Mercury

Fresh from restoration, the Leo Lyons Ultra Modern Merc heads to Pebble Beach

The Leo Lyons Mercury on the last day of restoration.  Leo Lyons wasn't a big name among Southern California customizers in the late 1940's, but that's not to say he lacked big ambitions. Initially armed with little more than a dream and a sketch pad, he embarked on a 10-year journey that would ultimately produce the last significant custom Mercury of the 1950's, a car he called the Ultra Modern Mercury. Largely out of the public eye since 1965, the now-restored Leo Lyons Mercury will make it's debut on the lawn at Pebble Beach, as part of this years Mercury's Custom Class.
