<-- 1950 Mercury - 1952 Mercury -->

The most notable change on the 1951 Mercury is the one-piece rear window replacing the smaller 3 piece window used in 1949 and 1950.For 1951, the Mercury also came with a new grille that was integrated with the directional signals. New vertical taillights replaced the horizontal type found on 1949 and 1950's Mercurys. New trim on the rear quarter panels made the wraparound bumper appear to extend even further around the sides than before.
