Hanson Motor Company was an Atlanta based car manufacturing company founded by George W. Hanson (1875-1940) and Don M. Ferguson in 1917. The company produced small, low priced cars in a factory in Detroit, Michigan. The budget six-cylinder vehicle called the Little Six, or the Hanson Six, was one of its most popular models. Before closing in 1925 due to a boll weevil scourge that weakened the Southern economy, they produced approximately 1,800 cars.
