The Anderson was an United States vehicles; recognized the best car ever implicit the U.s. South, it was made by a carriage works from 1916 to 1925 in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Began by John Gary Anderson, the organization sold autos through a national merchant system. The organization utilized Continental 7r even six motors in its vehicles, which were noted for their magnetic figure styles and color blends. Andersons were the first autos to be constructed with front lamp foot dimmers and controlled convertible tops. Creation arrived at almost 2,000 units in 1923 and in each of the 7,000 vehicles were handled throughout the duration of the organization.
There are various explanations why the Anderson Automobile Co. floundered. As per Edward Lee, who composed the 2007 book John Gary Anderson and His Maverick Motor Company: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford’s Rock Hill Rival, the vehicle experienced an inadequate motor. Anderson purchased the majority of the parts from different producers. Throughout the later years of processing, Anderson utilized a Continental motor with an aluminum head and it distorted at high temperatures.
Cost was likewise an issue, Lee accepts. Model T Fords were offering for as low as $290 in ths 1920s making the autos moderate to the larger part of Americans. Andersons require about $1,650 for a five-traveler touring auto and $2,550 for a car. Anderson’s trademark was a prophetic “A little Higher in Price yet made in Dixie.”
What’s more, by the unanticipated 1920s, the economy of South Carolina and other Southern states was at that point in the tank, well in front of the Great Depression, in light of plunging cotton costs taking after World War I.
Today, there are only 13 remaining cases of Anderson vehicles in presence. Of the aforementioned Anderson autos known to exist, four are possessed by the Anderson family, one is at the S.c.
