  • MercuryBahamian@1953CAS.jpg
    Three factory custom variations of Mercury production models appeared at the 1953 Chicago Auto Show. Seen in this photo is the 'Bahamian,' a Monterey two-door hardtop with a special tan body and dark brown roof. The second custom was an all black convertible named 'Contemporary' that featured a five-passenger interior upholstered in black leather with charcoal and white fabric. Third Mercury special was the 'Kentucky Colonel' four-door sedan, finished in a mint green paint, complimented by a cabin done up in white linen and Milan straw vinyl with mint green welting.
