John North Willyspurchased the Edwards Motor Car Company ofLong Island, New York, in 1913, moving the operation toElyria, Ohio, where Willys owned the plant that had previously manufactured the Garford automobile. Production began with afour-cylindermodel which was priced in the $2,500 price range. The Willys-Knight employed aKnightsleeve valveengine, generally four- andsix-cylindermodels.
In 1915, Willys moved assembly of the Willys-Knight toToledo, Ohio, but continued manufacturing the engines in Elyria. Willys-Knight introduced a sleeve-valveV8in 1917, which was sold until 1919.
Willys-Knight enjoyed a production run average of 50,000 cars per year after 1922.Willysalso purchasedStearns-KnightofCleveland, Ohio, which also used a sleeve valve Knight Engine, making that marque the crown jewel in his growing automotive empire.
Willys-Knight production ended in November 1932 (model year 1933) when the company, in receivership, stopped building higher priced cars, and instead focused on the manufacture of the inexpensive but durableWillys 77.
