No contest for this one.  In this order: 1) MERCURY  2) Pontiac  3) Dodge. 

As a side note regarding the Mercury Convertible, for those that may not know (and some may not care), but it was used as the FIRST "Batmobile" in the 1949 Batman movie serials.  Bruce Wayne would drive the Mercury with the TOP DOWN, but when Batman was summoned, the top would go UP, Bruce would make the costume change and then take off as Batman in the car.  Seemingly, people never figured it out.  Smile

Mercury wins this one by just a nose over Pontiac, but it would be reversed in 1950 and 51.  Dodge is nice but no styling match.

Mercury has to be the leader, with the Pontiac much further back.  The Dodge is a rather sad statement of Chrysler's styling problems.

A bit of a rut here. Mercury, Pontiac, then Dodge.

A great collection of Mercurys.
