An attractive sales brochure for this American automobile, printed in Australia for the 'Agents Throughout the Commonwealth'. 'The success of the Chandler Motor Car Co. encouraged Frederick C. Chandler (1874-1945) to organize the Cleveland Automobile Co. to produce a lower-priced automobile. Founded in Feb. 1919, the new firm began production in July [producing] the Cleveland automobile, a 5-passenger touring car that sold for $1,385; 16,000 of them were made in 1920. Chandler Motor Car made 23,832 automobiles that year - the most of any car manufacturer in Cleveland. However, sales, production, and profits declined for both companies in 1921. The two firms consolidated as Chandler-Cleveland Motors Corp. in 1926, and production of the Cleveland car was discontinued.' (Case Western University website).
