The Friend Motors Corporation
Pontiac, Michigan

Otis C. Friend was a former high official with General Motors. Early in 1920, amid charges of mismanagement, Olympian Motors Company was sold to Otis C. Friend and he formed Friend Motors Corporation. He produced an American Automobile named after himself. The Friend was equipped with a four cylinder that was designed for the 1917-1920 Olympian automobile.

For 1920 the new company planed a conservative production of 3,500 cars. It was capitalized at $2,000,000, all in 8 per cent preferred stock. It was understood that Otis Friend intended to introduce a new car, embodying his personal ideals in its construction. However, the Friend organization continued the production of the Olympian model for most of 1920. The Friend was made in limited numbers in 1921 and was priced at $1.285. On September 1, 1921 the Friend Motors Corp. was placed in receivership and all assets sold.
