The HANDLEY - KNIGHT Company of Kalamazoo started car production in October 1920.
HANDLEY - KNIGHT declared itself  "America´s Finest Knight - Motored Car", although they used the well known WILLYs Knight motor as well.
In November 1922 was noticed that no further Knight engines were needed. The new HANDLEY with a conventional engine was introduced in January 1923 but production was stopped still in early 1923 as the CHECKER Cab Company bought the factory.
The production figures are unknown.
