Mercury Turnpike Cruiser in East Yorkshire, England

I came across this car during a classic car rally in Beverley in the summer. I was struck by its beauty – the motor car as art!

I researched this photograph and I think the car is a 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Classic American car - 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser

The damp climate in the United Kingdom would make this a difficult car to maintain due to all the chrome.
