The MAIBOHM Motors started car production in Ohio in 1916. The company was named after the founder Peter C. Maibohm who was a blacksmith, wagonmaker and real estate man. He offered an assembled car using a 4-cylinder engine.
The company´s  best production year had been  1920 when they built 1,212 cars.
After a fire they moved from Racine to Sandusky in 1919.
In 1923 a refined Maibohm was offered as a Courier. 373 Courier cars were sold only  and car production ceased still that year. Don´t mess it up with the COURIER Car Company of Dayton / Ohio ( 1909 - 1912 ).

The name of Maibohm means: tree in the month of may (maypole)

Dimensionsca. 4.5 cm x  5.5 cm
Year1916 - 1919
