Beautiful classic American car - Mercury Turnpike Cruiser

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.
