We all know how beautiful the lines are on the 68/69 Mercury Cyclone and Torino. The rooflines and rear quarters are simply an enlargement of what can be found on the very popular 67/68 Ford Mustang Fastbacks.
The cars are a great design but, arguably, the fastback roof is the crown jewel of the entire car. Have you ever wondered how that roof would work on another car? I have seen renderings of the same roof line applied to a 67/68 Mercury Cougar. The results are stunning.
Do you remember the Johnny Cash song, One Part at a Time? Sounds like a good idea but I am afraid the mixture of those parts from all different years will not look as good as you might think.
But what if GM liked that Mercury fastback roof and fitted it to one of their cars? What if a 69 Mercury Cyclone and a 63 Buick Riviera had a baby? We found one, check out this video and tell us what you think. This video is long but covers the build in detail and is interesting.
