Default Re: Canadian 1946-1948 Mercury 114

My first car was a 1950 Meteor. I also owned a 53 meteor... I have a book produced by Ford Canada.
In this book it states that Ford Canada needed more dealers, as we had a smaller population back then, so they came up with the idea of a different model so they could have more than just one Ford dealership in the vast rural towns.. So the Mercury Monarch and Meteor dealerships became a different idea that way they could have more than one dealership in the same town... Monarch. Meteor and Mercury, Trucks became became another option to try and sell more cars, they were Canadian made only... As for NZ and Australia, Most of their Ford products came From Canada they were all part of the British Empire. They had no trade deals with the US...
