A little background
1939 Mercury Series 99A Sport Convertible Coupe is a first year production car
The new Mercury closely resembled the Fords, but cost $165 more than the Deluxe Ford and $430 less than the Lincoln Zephyr. For that $165 the Mercury buyer got a significantly different package. Mercury offered an exclusive, more modern body shell with fixed v-windshield and center-mounted antenna, welded all-steel construction, cowl-mounted wipers, concealed front door hinges and outward-curving sides, widest at the front seat line. The frontal appearance was similar to the Ford but the rear fenders were deeply valanced and unique to Mercury as were the taillights and trim.
The dash was unique with recessed controls, cowled steering column arc-type speedometer, locking glove box, and there was a clock. Under the hood, the 221 cubic-inch Ford V-8 was punched out to 239 cubic inches and generated 95 horsepower at 3,600 rpm. Both Ford and Mercury introduced hydraulic brakes in 1939 and they were long overdue.
The 1939 Mercury is timeless and elegant that says look at me.
