    the Mercury Junior was called the "Big M" and from all of the information i currently have they were only made in 1957 and 1958 but there is very little information available on them so i could be wrong.
This page is fairly limited because of the limited production run that BIG M saw. the only 57 literature I have is a poor photocopy of the original literature. if you have a better one or more literature please sell them to me or send me scans. I would also like to get original vintage images of Mercury Juniors. I really like to find images of them being used at dealerships for promotions.

I have included a lot of pictures of two original 1957 models both are in very good condition and the frame detail shotsw should help other restore their cars or recreate an original frame or missing parts. all of the pictures have been decresaed in size to make them load faster and cut down on bandwidth charges. if someone has a real need for larger images just let me know.

I have started a Resourses page that I will list known available original parts and reproduction parts for Powercar products. I have also started to compile a list of surviving cars. but the list is only as good as the information that I am provided. or as good as i am able to update it. if you have information to share or parts to sell let me know.

Use of images and information on this website for Magazine articles/car club newsletters

If you want to use information or images from this website for magazine articles please contact me so that I can help by providing more information addition images or Higher resolution images. So little is known about these little cars that education of the collecting public can only help find more of them and find more parts or parts sources for them. Generally I only ask for of a copy of the final issue and mention of the website in the article in return. Even though promotional cars have been around for a long time they have only recently become very collectable. Any article written about them can only help to find “Automotive archeologists” With information on these rare and unusual mini cars
