More background from John: "This is at Daytona Beach, in Feb. 1961 with my brothers, sister, and father. I am 3rd from the left age 11. This car was wonderful, it had black and white vinyl interior, a 390, and fender skirts (removed at this time because it was winter up North where we live). I have wonderful memories of this car, because my mom loved it so much. It was fast and roomy. It was purchased from Bob Barth Mercury in Syracuse, and was probably 3 months old at the time this picture was taken."
