Mercer Cars

Dedicated to the enjoyment of Mercer cars with pictures, specifications and history.

The Mercer cars were known for their performance on both the racetrack and the road during their two-plus decades of existence. Behind the Mercer venture were the wealthy Roebling family of Savannah, Georgia and the Kuser family, who had been involved in the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. Roebling invented the coiled wire rope used to suspend the bridge. The car was named after Mercer County, New Jersey where the plant was located.

The first Mercer cars arrived in 1910. Racing was big and international in Savannah in the early days of racing, and Mercer was the king of racing. "The Mercer was the Steinway of the automobile world."

The Mercer Company was already on a rocky road financially when Washington A. Roebling II died in the disaster of the Titanic. Mercer produced 931 cars in 1915.
