A collection of some of the most interesting Kaiser-Frazer-related postcards from my collection.

Willow Cottage

Willow Cottage (circa 1948)

Caption on reverse:

Willow Cottage - Kaiser-Frazer's new driveaway home at Willow Run where new adventure in motoring thrills commence.

Tags: Kaiser-Frazer, Michigan

Willow Run was built by the US government just before World War II for the building of B-24 Liberator bombers, by Henry Ford. At that time, it was the largest building in the world. Kaiser-Frazer later started operations in this building after Ford no longer had an interest in it.

Larry Barker, owner of the Kaiser Store, Peoria, Arizona, introduced me to the Kaiser-Frazer automobile line, when he and I were among many passengers stranded in Charlotte International Airport in the Summer of 2009.

I will be placing links to my eStore on Playle's website in this space, if you wish to purchase this postcard, so check back frequently. If you are impatient, and want to buy this postcard right now, then email me at postcards@the-hurds.net and we will settle on a reasonable price.

A Picture Review of the Kaiser and the Frazer
Kaiser and Frazer automobiles were manufactured at Kaiser's Willow Run, Michigan, factory from 1946 to 1955, when declining sales forced the closing of Kaiser's domestic operations. At that time production was moved to Argentina and Brazil, where the company turned out a series of sedans, trucks and Jeeps until the company was sold to a combine of Ford and Renault owners in the late 1960s.

About this Webpage

I have created this webpage as a scrapbook of sorts to showcase some of the more interesting postcards from my postcard collection. Much of my collection is inherited from my grandmother, Mildred E. Berwick Casartello. I have categorized the postcards in various groups, so you will find them on multiple pages. The tags line at the bottom of each postcard entry has links to each category that you will find that entry on.
