The History of Mertz Ford

Mertz Ford Dealership St. Louis Metro Area New & Used Ford Dealership

The Mertz Ford Dealership has a rich history. Founded in 1921 by the current owners grandfather, we have been providing exceptional customer service and premium Ford cars, trucks and other products and services to our customers. The core value system of Mertz Ford has been upheld through three family generations. Current owner, Don Mertz, is dedicated to continuing the family's values, services, and reputation. He lives by the words of his grandfather and father:

"If your word's no good you might as well give up; if you lose trust, you have nothing."

To date, this philosophy has proven effective. We sincerely focus on creating an environment that strives for complete customer satisfaction.  Our owner, Don Mertz, is available everyday to answer any questions or concerns.  There is a difference in being treated like family and being just another number in a large corporate dealership.  We are just big enough to be able to handle any needs you may have and small enough to care.  And know that we continue our commitment to uphold our lofty level of service standards as well as the delivery of high quality Ford products. At Mertz Ford you will find everything from new Ford cars, Ford SUVs and Ford Hybrids, to used Ford trucks and Ford crossovers. We pride ourselves at being able to offer only the best Ford vehicles in the area, whether they are new or used. We will also work to meet your financing needs in order to ensure your next Ford vehicle purchase goes exactly as you plan.  Come on by and look at our new dealership facility.  Above: Photo taken in Millstadt IL after Mertz Ford received its first shipment of the Ford Model T in 1921.
