In 1935, Edsel Ford designed a more luxurious version of the Ford that he intended to call the Falcon. Since he didn’t think it fit in with other Fords, he created a new brand named for the Roman god — Mercury.
The 1939 Mercury 8 began production in 1938, with a 95 horsepower (71 kW; 96 PS) V8 engine. Over 65,800 were sold the first year, at a price of $916 (approximately $14,000 in 2010 dollars). It was an all new car, sharing no body panels with either Ford or Lincoln. Its body was six inches wider than Ford and rode on a 116 inch wheelbase, four inches longer than Ford.
