From 1910 to 1918 the FIAT automobile of Italy was manufactured in the United States under licence. The factory was in Poughkeepsie, New York [Kimes, Clark].
Of course they had their own radiator emblem with different colors to the European FIAT. Here you see the American FIAT emblem with a really deep shining red. Hard to find item. This one is from the Lee Roy Hartung collection up to auction in november 2011.
