about

"The Car that dares to ask Why?," some ads touted, referring to why a big car could also be so economical.

The early Mercury was a good-sized car and with its up-to-20 mpg performance, by 1942 had earned an image of being a fine performer in mph as well as mpg. The 49-51 Mercurys became very popular with customizers and hot rodders and James Dean driving one in "Rebel Without a Cause" helped capture the cult status these cars were making.

The large, archival photographs in this book illustrate the fascinating early life of the infamous Mercury, a car with an image synonymous to the fleet-footed messenger of the gods that shared its name.

James Moloney has been in many car clubs like the Early Ford V8 Club, The Classic Car Club, Studebaker Club, and many others through the years. A genuine old-time car guy, he has written numerous books pertaining to automobiles.
