The Mercury was a cyclecar built in Detroit, Michigan, by the Mercury Cyclecar Company in 1914. The Mercury had a self-supporting body that eliminated the need for a chassis frame. The vehicle was equipped with a two-cylinder air-cooled 9-horsepower (6.7 kW) engine. It used a friction transmission and belt final drive. Body styles were monocar, tandem two-seater and light van.
