W. F. S.
The W. F. S. Motor Car Co.
Philadelphia, PA

The W. F. S. Motor Car Co. was formed by W. F. Shetzline. Shetzline was a Philadelphia electrical contractor who put himself into the automobile business in 1911 for the manufacture of a car he had designed. The W. F. S. was offered in at least four body styles including a two passenger Runabout, four and five passenger Touring Cars and a Limousine with 112 inch wheelbase.

A 25 horsepower four cylinder engine was used in 1911. In 1912 the W. F. S. grew to a 40 horsepower four cylinder on 118 inch wheelbase. Addition features included a multiple disc clutch, shaft drive and a three speed sliding gear transmission located on the rear axle.
