In this instance, I find the two vehicles very similar from the side. While they have distinctive grills, I like both cars equally.

Slight edge to the Ford.

I think this one is as close to a Tie that I'll ever have to vote on.  We're talking basically the same car here, but I still won't vote a Tie. 

I give my vote to the MERCURY.

I really have always liked (since 8th grade) that color and year Torino.

Ford.  The Mercury's front end looks a bit cartoonish.

@david-green David, I agree with you 100%.  So for me it is a tie.

Just like the styling on the Ford much better.

I like them both very much but prefer the grille, tail light and trim/decal treatment on the Ford.  The color on this Ford is gorgeous and the Mercury color is  IMO the least attractive offered that year.

The '69 Merc grille is a big improvement IMHO.

Both are great! I like the Mercury just a bit more. 
very cool with opposite color treatment on both cars.
