Cotton Body Co.
Cotton Body Company, 1910s-1922; Concord, New Hampshire; 1922-1923; Boston, Massachusetts
Associated Builders

The Cotton Body Company of Concord, New Hampshire produced custom-built suburban bodies for regional automobile dealers. Its most popular model was the Beverly Suburban which was featured in a 1924 magazine article. Mounted on a Maxwell chassis, the estate car featured an unusual A-pillar and a forward extended roofline which sloped forward creating a built-in sun visor. Another unusual Cotton trademark was their alligator-patterned leatherette which was used on the seats, side panels and interestingly the cowl.

Concord was also the home of Abbot-Downing, makers of the world famous Concord Coach, the finest stagecoaches that traversed the country in the mid-to-late 1800s. Abbot-Downing also manufactured commercial vehicle bodies and Concord trucks up until 1933.
