The Westcott was advertised as "The Car with the Longer Life". The Westcott was powered by a Continental Engine, and rode at least two wheelbases, 125 in (3,175 mm) and 118 in (2,997 mm). In 1923, the company released a model named The Closure, which was a touring car with hard panels that could be removed from the sides of the car during the summer months. According to the company, the average lifespan of a Westcott car was 10 years, which was three and a half years higher than the national average.
Production stopped in 1925 due to the company being unable to pay debts of $825,000 owed to suppliers of parts used in the cars.
Burton Westcott is also known as a client of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed a Prairie School style house for the Westcott Family in Springfield, Ohio in 1904. Restoration of the Westcott House began in 2004.
