Mercury Dealership 1952 location Searcy AR Woodruff and Spring

Mercury dealership approximately 1952.

The building is still there.

 

Old Mercury place today Spring and Woodruff

I drive by this building daily, almost, and have wondered what was once there.  Seeing a picture in the book, "Memories of America Searcy" with my husband, a former car dealer, he pointed out that the Mercury dealership was once located in the building at the corner of Woodruff and Spring Streets in Searcy.  Compare the pictures and you can tell that he is right.  So we are seeing a before and after shot of a structure in Searcy AR.  It still has class and it would be nice for it to be used for business again.

I love seeing that 1951 torpedo nosed Studebaker in the first picture. What a classic car!

I have a scale model of it.

Wouldn't I love to own all of those now.  Priceless, thanks for bringing back the memories

Don, if you'd collected real cars (like the Torpedo) perhaps you'd still be in Arkansas.  It would have been too much trouble to move!!  We still miss you.

I bought the car for Paula. Her father had a 51' Studebaker and I rode in it a few times when we were dating.
