Overland was America’s second best-selling car from 1912 to 1918. Founded in 1902 by Charles Minshall and Claude Cox, the company was initially located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The company was purchased in 1908 by John North Willys in an attempt to produce a lower priced vehicle than Ford. Consequently, Willys moved the company to Toledo, Ohio. However, the 1919 Model 90 eventually would cost over two hundred dollars more that the comparable Ford model.
The 1919 Overland Model light Four 90 was powered by an inline four-cylinder, 32 horsepower engine. The transmission was a three-speed sliding gear unit. Featuring a gray body over black fenders with red wire wheels, this Overland has a rear-mounted spare, amber headlight lenses, individual front seats, folding top and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. Overland touted; “You never want to put your car through punishment, but it is gratifying to know that you could.” Such was the confidence in Overland automobiles.
