Mercury was an automobile marque owned by the Ford Motor Company. It was established in 1938 as a mid-level premium brand between the mainstream Ford and the luxury Lincoln. Mercury has produced several notable models throughout its history, such as the Mercury Eight, Mercury Cougar, and Mercury Marauder. In the early years, Mercury vehicles often shared platforms and components with Ford models but featured distinct styling and features to create a more upscale image.

Albert McNea's involvement in the design process of the Mercury Cougar helped ensure that the vehicle had its own unique identity and character. His contributions influenced various aspects of Cougar's design, such as its exterior styling cues, interior layout, and attention to detail. The result was a visually appealing and well-crafted vehicle that helped establish the Mercury Cougar as a desirable option within the automotive market of that time.

The collaboration between Albert McNea and other designers at Ford Motor Company shaped the aesthetic direction of Mercury vehicles during this era, further establishing the brand's identity and positioning in the automotive market.
