Colonial (1921 automobile)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Colonial was an American automobile manufactured in Boston by the Colonial Motors Corporation from 1921 until 1922.[1]

Although the company pledged to produce "in excess of 100 cars" during its first year in business[1] no more than a dozen are believed to have left the factory. Each car had a 130-inch wheelbase and a six-cylinder Beaver engine.[2] A complete line of open and closed body styles was advertised, but the few completed models all appear to have been open.[1] Disc wheels were a feature of all models, and prices were approximately $5,000 for all body styles.[2]
