The Templar, which was built in Cleveland, Ohio from 1917 until 1924, was advertised as the 'Super Fire Small Car' and that's exactly what it was.

The most unique feature of the sporty Templar was its motor - a 197 cubic-inch, four-cylinder engine with overhead valves that developed 43 horsepower. (The valves were enclosed in an aluminum case ('Vitalic Top valve.') The wheelbase was 118 inches, which worked well with roadster and phaeton bodies.

Templar production was never high. Only 761 were sold in 1917-18. Peak production was 1,850 in 1920. America's entry into World War One in 1917 had interrupted production from the beginning. Although the Templar was an attractive car, sales never took off. Production ended in 124 with approximately 6,000 cars built.
