But... the original green version, along with most of the customizing, was done by another fairly well known shop

I said it was one of the first.
Iy was done around the same time when Sam Barris started to cut his own, and Jerry Quesnell’s 1949 Mercuries, but there seem to be no exact dates to show which one was done first

It's very similar to Sam Barris' Merc, and built around the same time, but by a different shop

I thought the second version might be better known since there weren't that many magazines around in the early-50's
