Beaver Six
The Beaver State Motor Co.
Gresham, Oregon

The Beaver Six was the only automobile ever manufactured on a commercial basis in the Pacific Northwest. Produced by the Beaver State Motor Company in 1912 only. P. A. Combs J. A. Friddle of Portland, Oregon were the owners and designers of the Beaver Six. The prospectus to potential investors stated "It is a high class car with beautiful lines and is a very satisfactory machine."

It has been reported that The Beaver State Motor Co. produced an American Automobile called the Oregon in 1916. In addition the Beaver has been reported in production up to 1920. However no proof has been found of either claim. The Beaver State Motor Co. factory was in operation up to 1920. However, only rail car wheels, sewer pipe and cement mixers were produced.
