Much speculation surrounds the background of the Lawrence Garrison ’40 Merc. Could it have been worked on by Valley Custom? Who installed the Jimmy Summers fadeaways? What is certain is that Garrison customized it when (almost) new in Massachusetts in 1942, it showed up in California during World War II, and the ’47 Chevy (front) and Buick (rear) bumpers indicate it was finished around that time period. Patrick Orosco is the latest owner.
