Kissel Motor Company originally manufactured agricultural equipment, then stationary gas engines, before producing cars.

Kissel manufactured almost the entire vehicle, something uncommon for early automobile companies. Most early auto manufacturers assembled parts bought from different companies rather than producing the entire car in-house. Kissel added the motto "Every Inch a Car" to their trademark in 1914, seven years after the first Kissel logo was trademarked.
