The Moller Motor Car Co.
Lewistown, PA

The Moller was an American Automobile built by former Denmark brothers, Holger and Wilhelm Moller. They migrated to American and settled down in Lewistown, PA to build Moller automobile. That was in 1918.

The Moller was a sleek little sportster that weighed only 1,000 pounds and got 50 miles on a gallon of gasoline.

By the end of 1919 the Moller Brothers raised money by selling stock in the company, appointed a board of directors and designed a new engine and automobile. The new Moller was a car that could be classed with the highest priced cars ever built. Riding comfort, speed and power were comparable with the best. However, due to the economic down turn after WWI, material and labor were in short supply. The company only lasted a few years and only about 1,000 Mollers were produced.

The first Moller was a $1,000.00 Model A two passenger Roadster designed along European lines on a 100 wheelbase. Both left and right hand drive models were produced. The right hand drive models were intended primarily for export. The Model A was equipped with a L-head four cylinder 94 cubic inch engine designed by the Holger Moller and Wilhelm Moller. Advertising claims included - "One Thousand Pounds For One Thousand Dollars"! A four passenger Model B Touring Car was also planned.

The chassis price is $1,500. This car is manufactured by the Moller Motor Co. Lewistown, Pa."

A 1922 issue of Motor Age magazine described the Moller as - "A group of illustrations showing details of the Moller car.  The two views of the chassis will give an excellent idea of the general design.  In the circle at the left is shown the adjustment on the steering column to change the rake.  It will be noticed from the lower view how easily the bearings are reached by removal of the crankcase.  The front end drive is by chain, with an exterior adjustment.  The engine is very accessible, as shown in the upper right hand illustration."
