It's the ice pearl paint that draws people over to look at this '50 Merc, but there's plenty more to see on Chris and Bette Addington's custom, built by Chris along with Tim Robison. The suspension includes a Fatman clip and Air Ride 'bags. The engine is a Chevy 350 with a 700-R4. The exterior is still the biggest draw. The top was chopped 2 1/2 inches, and the paint was done in a home garage. Ron Beam added the pinstriping.
