While I am not keen on the colour combinations of either of these vehicles, I am far more comfortable picking the Mercury.

I'm the minority, tonight. Though both are over restored and over equipped with accessories, the Mercury looks gaudy and the Dodge is more elegant. I go with the Dodge.

OMG!  The MERCURY all the way!  And the Black/Red color combo is a favorite for Two-Tone's in the Fifties.  I like the Dodge too, but against the Mercury, it's no-contest!

I had to call it a tie. While I am a Mopar guy at heart, and I really like the styling of Chrysler for 56, I have to many fond memories of that year Mercury.  My grandmother had one - a fully loaded 2 door in Persimmon, I fell in love  in love  with it.   I thought it was the most beautiful car I had ever seen  And when she died my mom inherited the Mercury.  I was hoping my parents would keep it until I was old enough to drive, but Dad was more interested in the money so he sold it.  Ever since then the 56 Mercury has held a special place in my heart.

Sorry but that Mopar just looks pregnant! Mercury looks like it’s looking for a fight👍🏻
