F. C. Ball, glass jar manufacturer, purchased the Inter-State Motor Company of Muncie, Indianapolis after it had gone into receivership. In 1915, a new Beaver 4-cylinder low-priced car was released. By May 1918, automobile production was suspended in favour of war work. In late February 1919, F.C. Ball announced he would be resuming passenger car production, but by March of the same year, Ball sold the Inter-State factory to General Motors for them to produce their new Sheridan.
