History of the 1949 Mercury

Mercury was an automobile marque of the Ford Motor Company launched in 1938 by Edsel Ford, son of Henry Ford, to market entry-level luxury cars slotted between Ford-branded regular models and Lincoln-branded luxury vehicles, similar to General Motors' Buick brand, and Chrysler's namesake brand. From 1945 to 2011, it was the Mercury half of the Lincoln - Mercury division of Ford. Using badge engineering, the majority of Mercury models were based on Ford platforms.

The first postwar Mercury was introduced in the 1949 model year. Sales figures for both Ford and Mercury broke records in 1949. Within its era and beyond, the Mercury Eight was popular with customizers. In 1949, Sam Barris built the first lead sled from a 1949 Mercury Eight; the Eight became the definitive lead sled, much as the Ford V-8 was becoming the definitive hot rod.
