Very interesting, the cars kind of remind me of a carnival ride car.
Kinda looks like a Morris. In the Dale interview, were they asking for your expertise in engine, suspension, trannies?
Nice to see "rack and pinion" on such a fine automobile.

Looks like a better model of the Crosley
There were less than 20 Keller Station Wagons produced and only three known to exist today. I saw one a few years ago and you could see why they could not compete with the big three. The wood Station Wagon was the costliest body style and the most labor intensive to build. By 1948 the public wasn't willing to spend several hundred dollars more for a Station Wagon then a Sedan. Because of cost's and maintenance to the wood bodies Ford, Chevy and Chrysler were phasing out wood bodied cars. Keller was just starting to build them. I guess the saying "Too little, too late" fits.
A great story. Thanks for finding it. Those were heady times after WWII and opportunities abounded.
Thanks for the tips on the shows
Not a crap post at all. What a story!
Cool....lots of little motorized mini's came out after the war because of the demand for transportation. I have a 1947 MotorEtte that has some really good sheet metal work stashed over in a corner.
The only MotorEtte I have ever seen pictures of is from, like 1911. Do you gave pictures?
