Mercer 1910 - 1926: The Mercer company evolved from the Walter company and was backed by the wealthy Roebling and Kuser families. One of their first models was the Raceabout: two bucket seats, a monocle windshield and a round petrol tank at the rear. It was surprisingly fast and light and offered good sports. Some were entered succesfully in racing events. However, sales were rather low and several of the peole behind the company’s successes resigned or died during the 1910s. In 1919 a Wall Street syndicate took control but the final result of their activities, Hare’s Motors, collapsed already two years later. Attempts were made to revive the make – a six-cylinder model was introduced – but it all came to nothing.
