1956 Mercury restyled by George Branson of Artesia, California for Norwalk Coachmen member Jack Arnold of Norwalk, California. George did all the custom body and paintwork on the Merc. Larry Watson of Watson's House of Style painted scallops on the car in Tahitian Red Metallic. The scallops were tipped with gold powder and pinstriped in black. Larry horse-traded the paint-job for a set of Appleton teardrop spotlights for his Chevy, the Grapevine.[2]
