Waltham Preparing For A Busy Season

The Makers of the Waltham Orient motor cars and Orient buckboards, with factory at Waltham, Mass, have planned to double their output for 1907. They have purchased six lots adjoining their present plant and are securing bids for several new buildings, which when completed are to be equipped with the most modern machinery and tools. Their estimated production for 1907 will consist of 200 touring cars and 2,000 buckboards. The line comprises two 20-horsepower governor controlled cars, one listing at $2,000, the other at $1,750, also a 16-horsepower runabout for $1, 250. There is a 4-horsepower buckboard friction transmission at $400, and a delivery car of the same type and power for $450.

Since the resignation, September 1, of General Manager L.B. Gaylor, owing to poor health, the affairs of the company are being administered by an advisory committee, consisting of Manager E.S. Church, Sales Manager E.P. Chalfant and Auditor L. J. Hart.

  1. …and in 2 years, they went down the tubes.

    Note the prices for the 1907 Metz cars compared to those under Charles Metz’s management a few years later.
