The 1914 Mercer Raceabout was developed by the Mercer Automobile Company established in New Jersy in 1909. The expressed aim of this company was to develop a sports car capable of "safely and consistently" being driven at over 70 m.p.h. which was an unheard of speed at the time. In 1910, the Type-35 R Raceabout was built as a stripped-down, two-seat speedster that could be used in the many road races occurring during this era. The Raceabout's inline 4 cylinder engine displaced 300 cubic inches and developed almost 60 h.p. which allowed it to reach speeds of over 90 m.p.h.. The Raceabout became one of the favored sportscars of the era and was coveted for its fine construction and outstanding handling. This older, out-of-production 1914 Mercer Raceabout model includes the following features and does not require painting: 1) Black chassis; 2) Brass colored accent parts; 3) Clear windshield; 4) Six rubber tires; 5) White body and 6) Illustrated assembly instructions. The box is in excelent condition but does have an initialed letter in the upper left hand corner of the box front. Never started and 100% complete with all parts and instructions inventoried.
