The Argo Auto, never heard of it

Mansell Hackett purchased the Argo Motor Company in 1917 and established the Hackett Motor Car Company. Located in Jackson, Michigan, the company produced a line of touring cars and roadsters until 1918, at which time the company was moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan and became the Lorraine Motors Corporation.

  1. The main claim to fame of the Lorraine car was that David Buick, who founded the Buick Motor Car Co, was President of Lorraine Motors Corp just before the company went out of business in 1921.
