Ford. I always liked its looks.
Retired in Dunedin, Florida.
Going with the Ford which is more familiar to me than the merc.
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.
My favorite Galaxie but also my favorite Mercury, so close to a tie.
The Mercury is nice, but I have to go with the Ford.

oh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah........the Fabulous Ford !!
Most years, I prefer the Mercury, but for 1961, the Ford lines are outstanding. Ford!
One of my favorite years for Mercury!
The Ford for me.
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.
My long time favorite gets my vote....the '61 Ford.
