1915 Overland Model 82
The first Overland was built in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1903 by Claude Cox and featured numerous advanced features including a water-cooled single-cylinder engine installed vertically under the hood. Approximately twelve examples were built and then were followed by a twin in 1904 but production barely doubled. Early Overland vehicles featured a removable ignition plug that prevented automobile theft when left unattended. Prospects brightened when the upstate New York agency for Overland was taken on by an Elmira-based individual named John North Willys. Mr. Willy's talents allowed him to sell Jeffrey and American Underslung automobiles faster than they could be produced. Needing more inventory, he placed an order for 500 1907 Overlands and placed a $10,000 deposit. With little response from the Overland factory, he jumped on a train and headed to Indianapolis. There he discovered....nothing....well, practically nothing.
