Following a modest recovery of the United States economy in 1909, the economy slipped into recession in 1910 and 1911. Conditions improved in 1912 only to reverse in 1913. So it was not uncommon to see automobiles manufacturers like The Consolidated Motor Car Co. fail during this period.
The Consolidated Motor Car Co. reorganized into The Croxton Motor Car Co. once again. Croxton then moved his company to Washington, Pennsylvania, where a new factory was built in late 1912. Those cars sold in prices similar to the Croxton-Keeton, but production of the Croxton stopped for good in 1914.
