Kauffman Motor Vehicle Company

The company was begun in 1906

The Model C sold for US$1000,  against the  Enger 40 and  Ford Model F at US$2000, the US$1750 FAL, US$1600 for the  Oakland 40 the  Cole 30 and Colt Runabout at US$1500, the  Yale tourer at US$1000, $700 for the Ford Model S $700, the high-volume Oldsmobile Runabout US$650,  Western's Gale Model A was US$500, a  Brush Runabout US$485, the  Black from $375, and the  Success was US$250. 
Advance became the
Kauffman Motor Car Company in 1911, and folded the next year.
