The Michigan Buggy Co of Kalamazoo motorized one of its products in 1904 and offered the result for $450. The car was powered by a single cylinder 3 1/2HP engine. The car was provided with a two speed transmission which had no reverse. Backing up had to be accomplished by pushing. The firm continued to offer its motor buggy on a limited basis through the years, occasionally under the name of Kalamazoo but more often as the Michigan. Serious production of a standard automobile did not begin until 1911 with the formation of the Michigan Motor Car Company. This new venture was nicknamed “The Mighty Michigan” and the cars with 40 HP engines were built through 1913 when the company was involved in a scandal which ended production and caused the company to be sold by 1915.
