In 1914 Locomobile set up a custom car department headed by designer DeCausse. Locomobile used other body builders and designers such as LeBaron Inc. who opened their doors in 1920.
In 1922 William Durant bought the Locomobile Co. with the intension of making the brand the elite car of GM. This did not work out as Durant over extended his financial resources. Locomobile ceased production in 1929. LeBaron Inc. was created and owned by Raymond Dietrich and Tom Hibbard.
