No contest on this one.  MERCURY!  It was so much more attractive to my eyes than the Ford for '61, which I personally thought was one of the really down styling years for Ford.  I wasn't excited that Mercury had reverted to sharing the Ford look again, and in my opinion they did the look much better than Ford did that year.

The Mercury is nice, but I have to go with the Ford.

Most years, I prefer the Mercury, but for 1961, the Ford lines are outstanding. Ford!

Great comparison John.  I pick the Ford by a nose as I like the rear tail light area better on the Galaxie.  The Mercury is very attractive too.  If these two were the more plain jane versions I would pick Mercury.

Since they are both technically the same car. I'll agree with George @georgeshire on this one.  The Merc for sure.
