Its unique design touches meant that the 1939 Mercury tricycle stood out from the crowd just like the 1939 Mercury bicycle. Nevertheless, in 1939 when it was launched for the New York World’s Fair, war clouds were gathering in Europe, and production lasted just two years before Pearl Harbour forced America into the war. Today these are rare tricycles, and the last of the streamlined styles of the 1930s.

Though a little play-worn, this example is in good unrestored original condition. As you can see, its unique saddle matches the over-the-top design of the Mercury front shroud.
