By the end of 1910, Forest M. Keeton left the Croxton-Keeton Motor Car Co. to manufacture an American Automobile called the Keeton in Detroit, Michigan.

The Keeton was a big American Automobile that was similar in design to the "French Type" Croxton-Keeton of which Forest M. Keeton designed in 1909. The Keeton was described as "An European Type - At an American Price!"

In January of 1914 the The Keeton Motor Co. was absorbed by the American-Voiturette Co. maker of the Car-Nation Cyclecar. However, by the end of 1914 the American-Voiturette Co. was bankrupt and in liquidation. Liquidators sold off 600 Car-Nation Cyclecars at $350.00 each and over 100 Keeton's at $1000.00 each in 1915. The Keeton's were a bargain as most had a list price of $3,000.00 to $4,000.00 each.
