Mercury – Bell

Today’s Poster art.


The handsome Mercury V8 Town-Sedan of ’42 seen in 1941, providing a moment of envy for the Bell P-39 Airacobra pilots, just before the USA’s entry into World War Two. The P-39 was a popular aircraft type for propaganda, though less capable in reality when tested in combat. Anoner ‘car & aeroplane’ advertisement.
