Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

Mercury received an all new, postwar styling starting with the 1949 model year. Nearly everything was changed when compared to the 1948 models. The Mercury engine, a flathead V-8 grew in displacement to 255 cid, and horsepower grew from 100 to 110. The suspension set-up placed coil springs in the front and leaf springs in the back. Power was transferred to the rear wheels via a 3-speed manual transmission, with an optional overdrive unit available. Pricing was aimed at the mid-market consumer, with a standard coupe costing just under $2,000.

Mercury made only minor adjustments in 1950, with some trim differences from the previous year. A low-priced coupe was added to the lineup, as well as the first hardtop design, the Mercury Monterey.

The most notable change for the 1951 model year was the introduction of the Merc-o-Matic automatic transmission. Horsepower changed nominally from 110 to 112, and exterior styling changes included reshaped rear fenders and rear glass. The front parking lights were changed with a chrome extension wrapping around the front fender.
