The Western Automobile Co.
Seattle, WA

The Waco was an American Automobile produced by The Western Automobile Co. of Seattle, WA from 1915 to 1917. Five Passenger Touring Cars and two passenger roadster bodies were made, both selling for $950.00.

With a wheelbase of 112 inches, the Waco was in the big car class.

The mechanical make up and equipment were compared favorably with the best American Automobiles from eastern factories. The Waco was equipped with a 3 1/4 inch bore X 4 1/4 inch stroke four cylinder 22.5 horsepower water cooled engine made by G. B. & S. (Golden Belknap & Swartz). The transmission used had three speeds forward and reverse with a Raybestos clutch. Ignition was by Dixie Magneto and a Schebler carburetor was used. Additional features included artillery type wheels, 32 x 3 1/2 inch tires and semi-elliptic springs. The interior had unusual features including a 17 inch walnut steering wheel and leather covered instrument board with Stewart speedometer, ignition and light switches, dash lamps, oil gauge and ammeter.
