We had no correct guesses for the 1958 Mercury, as hard as that might be to imagine. But fear not, dear readers, you have another chance to distinguish yourselves with today’s clue.
I was thinking it looks like a painted grille from a 30s/40s car. Maybe a Pontiac? But I can’t see any slots for the air, so who knows!
I think Pontiac is indeed correct, ’30’s or early ’40’s, but it’s not a grille. It’s a styling concept mockup for side body cladding, that had to be shelved for 60 years because injection molded urethane wasn’t developed yet.
