Mercury Owners,

Anyone else care to have those three bent lines replaced with the Mercury God Head logo? I would love to replace the crest on the trunk lid, wheels, front grill, and center of steering wheel.

Does anyone remember when this was the standard Mercury logo through the early 50s?

Has anyone found a source for the Mercury God Head logo items?

The Mercury man's head was already used on the '49 Mercury's accessory steering wheel center hub. In '50 it appeared on the front and rear emblems. The Mercury man continued to appear but was slowly shrinking in size until the late '50's. By the '60's the Mercury logo consisted of 3 stars which also used to appear with the Mercury Man. There are some aftermarket reproductions available for these emblems which can be used as "stick-ons" anywhere on your car.

I have a "Mercury Grand Marquis - Signature Edition" round logo that was used on certain types of after market Mock tops, that also uses the Mercury Man. Its intended location would be the C Pillars.

I don't think it would be possible to get enough interest in making the wheel hubs (in metal) with the Mercury man. The front and rear emblems are different on the '98-'01 than the '03 and later ones, so replacements would have to take that into consideration. It doesn't look like an easy job to replace those emblems in any event. The guy on Marauder.net had a good idea, just glue the Mercury Man on top of the original emblem. But I see problems down the road for that idea.

Something that might be possible is to glue a flat round (aftermarket) emblem to the lower front quarter panel, and the C pillars, or create a group buy type of stick on for that location.

If know that many people on mercurymarauder.net have replaced the "waterfall" emblems with "gods head" emblems on steering wheels, grilles, trunk, etc.

^^^ Thanks for the link, but that thread fizzles out without any word on what might be expected or when.

Under Mercury God Head E-Bay has three items with good photos. The third item, the hub caps, have the best likeness. The key fob or money clip maybe could be modified to make a small crest. See what you think of these items.

MERCURY GOD HEAD LOGO LEATHER KEY FOB EXC QUALITY FOB!

1955 55 Mercury God Head 15" Hubcaps Hub Caps Pair (2)USED
"You are looking at a pair of nice used hubcaps for the following vehicles:
1955 Mercury Colony Park
1955 Mercury Grand Marquis
1955 Mercury Marquis
These feature the winged God's portrait in the center of the cap. These were only used for 1955 model year cars and are becoming increasingly harder to find. These are used hubcaps and are not perfect, may have some minor cosmetic imperfections. Should fit most 15" RWD steel wheels."

Under Mercury Marauder there are a host of items - currently 66. It would be interesting to see the bidding on the 2003 Marauders in the closing minutes; currently the bids seem low. For Marauder enthusiasts this looks like a page to revisit.
