For me it's Oldsmobile, followed closely by Mercury. The Dodge is last, despite its "got a Hemi" under the hood.
Mercury, Olds (very close to Merc) and Dodge.
I gave a very slight edge to the Olds over the Merc. The Dodge is kinda cute but not is the same styling league.
Olds. Love the saddlebag two toning. Mercury next.

1) OLDSMOBILE 2) MERCURY 3) HO-HUM! Seriously the Dodge is a non-contender in the styling department. Old and dated looking. Not to mention short and stubby too. Actually for the Oldsmobile and Mercury, I could be persuaded to go with the two of them.
My choice is Oldsmobile the othe two are not even in contention
Merc, Olds, Dodge for me.
Mercury, Dodge, Oldsmobile for me John.
I’ve always liked the Mercury styling for 1954, plus they finally replaced the old flathead engines.
I remember the impact of the 1954 Oldsmobile, as well as others in the GM family. The lower body, wrap-around windshield, and chrome-separated 2-tone paint just impressed us. Of course "us" referred to teenagers. In our minds, that new styling immediately out-dated Mercury and, of course, that dowdy Dodge. Somehow, today I have reversed, and my choices are Dodge as #1, Mercury as #2, and Olds as the last choice. Just think what a hit that Dodge would be at a local car show!
Mercury by the preverbal mile, Dodge a distant second, Olds not at all.
@david-vandermeer Yup they replaced the dependable flat head with the Y-block that had a habit of blowing out rear main oil seals as well as other problems that frequent a new type of engines. But I still loved the '54 Mercury.
Mercury. Just simply a great looking car!

Mercury way out front, the Oldsmobile is next, with the Dodge finishing up, but to be honest, I'd never even consider the other two after seeing the Mercury.
