The Mercury Zephyr, using a name that was once a Lincoln model from 1936-1942, was introduced in 1978 as an upscale twin the Ford Fairmont. It replaced the outgoing Comet in Mercury's compact lineup. The Zephyr was a tremendous success for Mercury, and its new Fox platform spawned several other popular Ford models that were in use as recently as 2004. The Zephyr continued thru the 1983 model year with little change when it was replaced by the all-new front wheel drive Topaz. The Zephyr name would reappear as a Lincoln model once again in 2006 as an upscale version of the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan.
See separate Ford Fairmont entry for more information about the Mercury Zephyr.
