JEWETT / USA

The JEWETT Motors Inc. ( 1922 - 1927 ) was a subsidiary of the PAIGE Motor Car Company ( see PAIGE ).
It was organized to build a popularly priced six-cylinder car and was named after the parent company´s president      ( like the ERSKINE built by STUDEBAKER ).
In six years they sold more than 100,000 cars so it is quite easy to find an original JEWETT radiator emblem.

PAIGE / USA


Harry M . Jewett made a fortune in the mining industry. With Fred O. Paige he organized the PAIGE - DETROIT company. Soon Jewett eased Paige out of the company and installed himself as president. Jewett dropped "Detroit" but didn´t change the cars name.
In 1925 the company moved into 10th place in the car industry.
In 18 years more than 350,000 cars were sold.
A cheaper model built by PAIGE from 1923 to 1926 was the JEWETT with more than 100,000 cars in 4 years ( see JEWETT ).
In August 1927 , the PAIGE became the GRAHAM - PAIGE as the factory was sold out to the GRAHAM BROTHERS ( see GRAHAM ).
