The Metzger Motor Car Co.
Detroit, Michigan

Articles of incorporation were filed on September 20, 1909 by the Metzger Motor Car Company of Detroit. This was a new corporation to manufacture the American Automobile called the Everitt. The stockholders and officers of the company are Byron F. Everitt president, William Kelly vice president and William E. Metzger secretary and treasurer. The Everitt was designed by William Kelly who designed the Wayne and E-M-F automobiles.

Kelly was one of the pioneers having designed and built automobiles as early as 1899. Everitt and Metzger were well known to the automobile trade having been officials of the Everitt-Metzger-Flanders Company. Everitt and Metzger sold their interest in 1909 to the Studebaker Manufacturing Co.
