The Allen Motor Car Company was located at the 6080 Allen Building in Fostoria, Ohio from 1913-1921
In 1916, the offered the Allen Classic, available in both a Roadster and Touring for $850. The 37 Horsepower, 112 inch wheelbase vehicle with a two unit electric starter and lights, full floating rear axle, 55-inch springs and "easy-acting" brakes weighed 2,300 pounds.
In a clear snub at Ford (who's car only offered in black), their advertising claimed "To you and thousands of others who favor a touch of color and distinction, the Allen Classic comes as a tangible expression of your logical preference". The car was available in a refined "smoke brown", maroon or rich blue. The wheels were a light cream and the fenders were black.
The company's goal for 1916 was to build 15,000 cars.
