The Kleiber Motor Truck Co.
Los Angeles, CA

In the early 1900s, Paul Kleiber experimented with horseless carriages and was a distributor for the popular Gramm trucks. By 1913 he designed a truck and established The Kleiber Motor Truck Co. The Kleiber trucks were well built and sold well prompting Kleiber to enter the growing market for passenger cars.

From 1924 to 1929 produced a small number of American Automobiles which were sold on the Pacific Coast only.

In 1925 Paul Kleiber open a new plant and established distributorships in California, Oregon and Washington. Kleiber Six automobiles were built in 1924 and sold in 1925. The Kleiber was advertised as a "Modern Quality Automobile" that was "Aristocratic In Appearance". Four body styles were produced in 1925, including a California Top Touring Sedan, two other five passenger models and a four passenger coach. Prices in 1925 were $1,885 to $2,350.00 depending on model. In 1927 a seven passenger model, a coupe and a brougham were added.

The Kleiber Six was equipped with a Continental Red Seal six cylinder engine that developed 60 horsepower, a three speed transmission that had a top speed of 60 miles per hour. The chassis had a semielliptic leaf spring suspension and mechanical brakes. A straight eight cylinder model was planed but never produced due a decline in sales and the stock market crash of 1929. The Kleiber Motor Truck Co. continued to manufacture trucks until 1937.
