1950 Mercury Sport Sedan

Owner's: Robert & Mary Jane Teitsworth

This 1950 Mercury was purchased new by Robert's father, Minor Teitsworth, in 1950 from George Moyer Lincoln-Mercury in Compton, CA.
The invoice price was $2,735.00. Accessories at an extra cost were Overdrive, Heater, White Side Wall Tires and Undercoat. Robert fondly recalls many,
many happy family trips in the Mercury when he was a young boy. Mileage on the odometer is now under 99,000. The car retains its original paint and
upholstery. The trade-in was a 1940 Ford Fordor Sedan - allowance, $795.00. Robert recounts the story his dad used to tell about the trade-in value
of the '40 Ford being more than he paid for it new in 1940. That 1940 Ford is the first car Robert can remember riding in as a youngster
