The Jimmy Merchant Doo Wop Car

Jimmy Merchant is the surviving original founding member of "Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers" who is still doing concerts featuring Doo Wop and Timeless Favorites. He is the co-writer of their famous hit "Why Do Fools Fall in Love". Known as "Mr. Doo Wop", Jimmy can be seen with this car at prominent car shows and cruise-ins and concerts, and the car is featured in some of his promotions and in autographed photos and posters.
Jimmy does not own the car but uses it for promotion by arrangement with the present owner since it is a nearly perfect representation of the Doo Wop era in custom car steel.

There's a current pic of Jimmy in the 5th row below, along with pics of his autograph inside the glove box. The car comes with a collection of original Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers memorabilia and Jimmy Merchant pics, all autographed! To see what Jimmy is doing now, check out his website, www.jimmymerchant.com
