The Midwest Motor Company
Kansas City, Missouri

The Midwest Motor Company of Kansas City had originally been organized in 1917. The owener, B. P. Bagby was going to put into production an American Automobile called the Kay-See. However, the first world war halted that venture.

In 1919 The Midwest Motor Company was reorganized with a new set of backers. The new company renamed the automobile the Highlander

The president of the company was P.M. Crone, J. A. Fullerton was vice president and general manager, E. J. Short is secretary and R. L. Cleveland formerly with the Moon and Jefferies organizations was chief engineer. P. M. Crone purchased the Frankfort Motor Car Co of Frankfort, Indiana and transferred the shop equipment to Kansas City where the Highlander was being built.
