Mercury was introduced in the 1950 model year. The engine was a flathead. That produced slightly more power than the then also newly designed 1949 Ford.

A new overdrive system was optional, activated by a handle under the dash. The styling of the Mercury Eight, when it was released in 1949, adopted the ponton. Appearance, and was successful in both ending the monotony of warmed-over pre-war style, and differentiating Mercury from its comparable Ford cousin, a trick that spelled sales success.

Sales figures for both Ford and Mercury broke records in 1949. The new approach to styling was also evident on the completely redesigned Lincoln. And the all new Lincoln Cosmopolitan.

The Mercury Eight used full instrumentation. An 8 tube radio as an option.

Was replaced with a 2-door model. Although the wagon now featured an all-metal roof, its sides still consisted of wood panels.

Within its era and beyond, the Mercury Eight was popular with customizers. Built the first lead sled. From a 1949 Mercury Eight; the Eight became the definitive lead sled, much as the Ford V-8. Was becoming the definitive hot rod. The Eights were among the first models to receive an aftermarket OHV. Developed the first high-compression OHV V8 engines in 1949, whereas Ford was still using a sidevalve engine. Sam and George Barris also used the 1949 body style to build "the most famous custom car ever". For customer Bob Hirohata in 1953. Setting a style and an attitude, it had a "momentous effect" on custom car builders. Appeared in several magazines at the time.
