The Roamer was introduced during the fall of 1916. By spring of the 1917, Albert Barley moved his reorganized Barley Motor Car Company from Streator, Illinois to Kalamazoo, Michigan. Production of the Roamer would continue until 1929.
This Roamer Sport Touring model became very popular with the affluent country club set and Hollywood elite. When former United States President William Howard Taft, then serving as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, visited Kalamazoo in 1921, he was chauffeured in a Roamer identical to this car.
Powering this car is a four-cylinder motor rated at 54 horsepower. It has a 128-inch wheelbase and sold new for the sum of $2,875.
