The first Havers appeared in 1911 and was a 44 hp six-cylinder automobile available in touring and roadster body styles.
Two hundred cars were built in 1912 and all appeared to be going well. A 55 hp model was added in 1913 and this became a 60 hp model by 1914. Unfortunately there were financial difficulties and, when the Havers factory was destroyed by fire in July 1914, the company did not have the finances to recover and was finished by November of that year.

The following Havers radiator emblem for the Six-44 model has a completely changed design and is believed to have been used in late 1912 to early 1913, although I cannot confirm these dates. This Havers radiator emblem is extremely rare.

The Havers Six-44 radiator emblem shown below follows the company logo design but with "44" replacing the Havers Motor Car Company monogram. This Havers radiator emblem is extremely rare.

The Havers Six-44 radiator emblem shown above was seen on a 1913 model but it is believed that this design continued in use in 1914. Certainly the same logo was used by Havers in Havers Six-60 advertisements for 1914.
I have not seen Havers Six-55 or Havers Six-60 radiator emblems but I assume they were the same design as the Havers Six-44 emblem but with "55" or "60" instead of "44" at the bottom of the emblem. If you have details or photos of either of these emblems, please send me a copy to update this post.
