The Hammer Motor Company
Detroit, Michigan

In December 1904 the Hammer Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan was organized by Henry Hammer, Leon J. Paszske, Foster F. Allen and Harry F. Nickoalds as a successor to the Hammer-Sommer Auto Carriage Co.

The new Hammer had double the cylinders, double the horsepower and double the price of the Hammer-Sommer.

The first Hammer built in 1905 was a double phaeton four passenger American Automobile that was equipped with a two cylinder air cooled engine that developed 12 horsepower. Very few were built. Henry Hammer then turned his attention to a large Touring Car.
