50's MERCURY STYLE STROLLER

Another fun project was the baby stroller with a fiberglass body based on the early 1950's Mercury. Starting with just a basic steel frame and the fiberglass, everything else had to be fabricated. After filling and smoothing the body, it was painted resale red with black accents. The chrome was done with silver paint. Plywood was used to create the seat and was cut out to make room for the wheels. To make it more comfortable the seat was padded and covered with vinyl. Small fisheye mirrors give the illusion of headlights and the stroller wears part of a genuine Texas license plate.

Although it turned out a little heavier than expected, it was rugged enough to carry some lucky kid anywhere. What better way to spark a kid's interest in classic cars.
