The Mercury Eight is an automobile that was marketed by the Mercury
division of Ford between 1939 and 1951. The debut model line of the
Mercury division, Ford slotted the full-size Mercury Eight between
the Ford Deluxe (later Custom) model lines and the Lincoln. In
total, Ford assembled three generations of the Eight. The
advertisements for this car declared it to be "The car that truly
dares to ask 'Why?'", referring to the idea that a big car couldn't
also be economical. The Mercury was priced in the thousand dollar
range, several hundred dollars more than the Ford V-8, several
hundred less than the Lincoln-Zephyr and about the same as the
upper-range Oldsmobile and Dodges, Hudsons, and the lower-range
Buicks and DeSotos, sales from all of which, it was hoped, the new
Mercury would usurp.
