When Ford decided that they needed another brand to branch out on they picked Mercury. Now don't get the idea that Mercury is some bad offshoot. Mercury created some of the greatest cars ever. From early on to today, Mercury knew what the public wanted and they gave it to them. Mercury built cars that could do it all. It didn't matter what you needed in your driver, Mercury built it. The heyday of Mercury came when in 1949 they developed the first departure from the 'fat' fenedered cars of the earlier days. The cars became more slabsided with the fenders becoming part of the body. Then the big thing happened, the custom car crowd noticed that if you lowered it a bit and chopped the top (removing metal to make the top lower) you had one beautiful and sexy vehicle. With the hands of a master the '49-'51 Mercury became a thing of pure motion standing still. It appeared to hover on air cruising down the road. The legend of the Mercury grew and grew. When you were riding or driving in a chopped Mercury you knew you were somebody. It was like all eyes were on you and were the king or queen. Looking through the small window just gave you and the Mercury attitude. Now when you're cruising you smell the city and enjoy the lights but you need something to listen to and the stock Mercury radio was quite lackluster. Lets be honest it didn't stand up to the legend that was the Mercury. So what is a person to do? You move on over to Vintage Car Radio and take a look at the great line of Ken Harrison radios.
