History of Mercury
In order for the Ford Motor Company to offer a vehicle positioned between the base model Ford and the luxury model Lincoln brands, Edsel Ford founded the Mercury division in 1938. This new line competed directly with GM's Oldsmobile and Buick divisions, as well as Chrysler's name brand. Initially, it did not share any of the same body panel parts as any Ford vehicles; creating the image of an independent and unique car manufacturer. The legendary marque also garnered quite a following in the hot rod community during the 50's when it came out with vehicles that were more stylish and powerful than its Ford cousins while maintaining a price that was significantly lower than any Lincoln.
The automaker would later go on to align itself more closely with Ford, ultimately becoming a badge-engineered brand. The vehicles produced were more or less identical to their Ford cousins, but with a handful of premium-quality Mercury parts and emblems. Some exceptions of this can be seen in the Capri and re-designed Cougar.
