It's interesting that the Merc had duel head light and a very noticable 59 Ford roofline before the Ford line. Certainly Ford followed is's better looking "big brother".

I have been looking at some photos of 57 Mercs,they must have offered both single and dual headlights depending on body style,that must be the first dual headlight car,unless Cadalliac had them ,seem to remember some on else had them

I like the white single headlight car

Here's one I asked in another thread but never got a answer just some snorts and giggles!

This is a legitimate concept car out of the 50's.
What car manufacturer presented it?

I should have my head examined for such a guess but damn that dash looks a lot like a Nash! So how about Nash, Hudson or AMC I say all because in 57 Hudson and Nash merged to form AMC.

Something that I ran into about a month ago was very interesting. JC Whitney or parts people like them offered duel headlight conversions for Fords and maybe more brands. I'd never seen them until I was looking at a 57 to buy. Informed the gentleman he had a 58 but he straightened me right out. Never saw them before.

Chrysler and Desoto also had vehicles with factory duel headlights in 57. I believe none of the GM line up offered them until 58.
