In 1908, John Willys bought the Overland Automotive Division of Standard Wheel Company and in 1912 renamed it Willys-Overland Motor Company. From 1912 to 1918, Willys was the second largest producer of automobiles in the United States after Ford Motor Company.
John Willys acquired the Electric Auto-Lite Company in 1914 and in 1917 formed the Willys Corporation to act as his holding company. In 1916, they acquired the Russell Motor Car Company of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by 1917 New Process Gear, and in 1919 acquired the Duesenberg Motors Company plant in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
This charming 1921 Model 91 four-door Tourer has enjoyed a comprehensive restoration by the current vendor. The vendor has gone to great lengths to maintain the original look and feel of the car, restoring the Willys without using any reproduction parts. This is a delightful vintage tourer and a real treat to both own and drive.
