Historical: Mercury is an automobile marque of
the Ford Motor Company founded in 1939 to market
near-luxury cars slotted between entry-level Ford and
luxury Lincoln models, similar to General Motors' Buick
(and former Oldsmobile) brand and DaimlerChrysler's
Chrysler brand. To this day, most Mercury models are
based on Ford platforms.
Mercury was its own division at Ford until 1945 when it
was combined with Lincoln into the Lincoln-Mercury
Division, with Ford hoping the brand would be known as a
"junior Lincoln", rather than an upmarket Ford.
In 1949, Mercury introduced the first of its "new
look", integrated bodies, at the same time that Ford
and Lincoln also changed styling radically. Again in
1952, Mercury offered a further modernisation in its
look. In 1958, the Lincoln-Mercury Division and the
ill-fated Edsel brand were joined into the
Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln Division; with the demise of Edsel
in 1960, it has been in the Lincoln-Mercury Division ever
