The Westcott was built in Richmond, Indiana from 1909 to 1916, and until 1925 in Springfield, Ohio. The Westcott was an assembled car, but well-built with a good reputation. In 1910 Westcott was building three cars per day and was six months behind in its orders. In 1911 Westcott was entered in the Indianapolis 500. Half-way through the race, another car crashed and its mechanic was thrown directly into the path of the Westcott. Rather than injure the mechanic, the driver of the Westcott crashed his car deliberately. The driver and the Westcott both became instant heroes. In 1913 they introduced their six-cylinder cars with Continental engines. After the firm’s move to Ohio, Westcott continued to be a good selling vehicle. But, by 1925, it was in receivership and another victim of the postwar recession.

The wheelbase is 121 inches and the car weighs 3,000 pounds.
