THE MAYTAG LIGHT DELIVERY CAR AND TRUCK 1910-1912
The pictures that you will view on this page are from an original sales catalog for the Maytag-Mason car company.

The picture below is the cover from the original sales catalog.

SOME HISTORY ABOUT THE MAYTAG CAR CO.
Research shows that the Mason Car Company was founded in about 1906 to build a car that was designed by the Duesenberg brothers. Fred L. Maytag and his son Elmer decided to enter into the automobile manufacturing business. They bought into the Mason Car Company and renamed it Maytag-Mason Motor Car Company. Waterloo,Iowa was now the base for operations around 1910. The company produced many different models of cars and trucks and we will look at a few of those on this page. The company was only about two years old when it went out of business in 1912.
MAYTAG LIGHT DELIVERY MODEL " 11 "
Here is an opportunity for the grocer, butcher, baker, laundryman, florist, caterer or in fact for any man who has a business, and uses a delivery.
That was the opening statement used in the original catalog for the Light Delivery Model " 11 ".
The Model " 11 " had a double opposed air cooled motor that produced 14 H.P. It used a double chain drive system and a magneto ignition. The carburetor was a Schebler. Body dimensions were 60 inches by 41 inches and the top was 54 inches high.
The catalog stated that " Your horse may die, but you can never smash this truck beyond repair "
MODEL " 12 " TWO IN ONE MAYTAG CAR
Here is a car the business man has waited for. In a numer of instances the merchant has found himself in a position where he really needed a light delivery car to fight competition. He has also wanted to own a pleasure car, but felt he could not afford it, so did not buy either. We have solved that problem in a way that cannot be questioned, by offering an up to date pleasure car that can in twenty minutes, be converted into a powerful light delivery, capable of doing the work of three horse drawn vehicles, and doing it as briskly the last hour in the day, as it did in the first.
This is the statement in the original sales brochure for the Model " 12 " Maytag two in one car. The picture on the cover (First picture on this page) is the converted Model " 12 ".
Cost for this vehicle: TWO IN ONE CAR COMPLETE,WAS TWELVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS. MODEL "12" LIGHT DELIVERY ALONE,WAS ELEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS. MODEL "12" TOURING CAR ALONE,WAS ELEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS.
MAYTAG LIGHT DELIVERY MODEL '' 10''
This commercial car, fits in between the light car, and the heavy truck. This truck has proven to be profitable to the merchant. Many of the former users of the heavy trucks, have abandoned them for the more reliable light delivery car.
Our Model "10" while using the same power plant as the Model "12" is built along heavier lines, to care for the increased work demanded from a car of this type. This car is double chain drive from the jack shaft, a design that should be used by all manufacturers building a delivery car, that is expected to carry a load of 1500 pounds or more. The Model "10" is not as speedy as the Model "12", but uses a lower gear for pulling qualities.
MOTOR USED IN MODELS ''10'', ''12'' AND TWO CYLINDER PLEASURE CARS
Two cylinder opposed five inch bore, five inch stroke. Actual 25 brake horse power, cylinders, pistons, crank shafts, cam shafts, ECT., ground to a limit that insures absolutely accurate bearings. The crank shaft is drop forged from 30-40 point carbon steel, supported in two long, die cast Parson's white brass bearings. Connecting rod bearings are of the same material, hand scraped, assuring perfect fit. Splitdorf magneto is mounted on top of crank case, and gear driven. Water pump is located on end of crank shaft, thus doing away with one set of gears.
This motor should instantly appeal to all prospective buyers of commercial cars, where first cost, durability, and low up-keep are the chief factors.
HUBLEY TOY MAYTAG WASHER 1920s
The Hubley Manufacturing Company, Lancaster Pennsylvania, manufacturers of iron and steel toys, built this small Maytag cast iron washer about 1927. These tiny Maytags stand about six inches high, but are nearly perfect in every detail. For some time a great number of Maytag dealers would display these tiny Maytags in their showroom windows. These small Maytags would attract a great deal of attention. In many cases people would come into the showroom and ask if the tiny washers were for sale and appeared anxious to buy. It has been said that these small models of the famous Maytag wringer washers were salesman samples. From my research It looks as though they were just toys that Maytag dealers used to dress up their showrooms. The Hubley Company gave Maytag a special price when they bought these small washers. The cost to Maytag was about fifteen dollars a dozen. That was a great price as you may well know if you have tried to buy one today.
