Cleveland's Chandler Motors was founded in 1913, a manufacturer of mid-priced automobiles. By the early 1920s, they were the largest auto manufacturer in Cleveland and the nation's 13th largest. Chandler was known for their car's quality construction. The company continued to grow and, in 1928, sold to Hupp Motors. The Great Depression was especially rough on makers of mid-priced products, and by 1930, the company was out of business.

The Model Six, pictured above, is the least expensive Chandler model of 1916. The six-cylinder touring car seats seven passengers -- two in front, three in the back, and two in jump seats. It retailed for $1295.
