Information about Chandler

Chandler Motor Car Company, an emblem of early American automotive history, was established in 1913 in Cleveland, Ohio by Frederick C. Chandler. An astute engineer and visionary, Chandler departed from his position at Lozier Motor Company to start his own venture, aimed at producing high-quality, yet more affordable vehicles for the burgeoning market of middle-class consumers.

Chandler’s original offering, the Chandler Six, debuted with a robust 6-cylinder engine that promised both performance and reliability at a competitive price. This model carved a niche for Chandler, distinguishing the brand with its emphasis on value and mechanical sophistication. The Chandler Six’s innovative features and reasonable pricing made it a popular choice among the American public, contributing significantly to the brand’s early success.

However, despite its initial achievements, Chandler Motor Car Company could not sustain its momentum into the later decades. The 1920s brought about fierce competition and economic challenges that led to its acquisition by Hupp Motor Car Corporation in 1929. Today, Chandler’s legacy endures primarily among classic car enthusiasts and historians, a testament to its brief, yet impactful presence in the automotive panorama of the early 20th century.
