F.R.P. Finley Robertson Porter

FRP radiator emblem badge vintage
F.R.P.  radiator emblem
After leaving the MERCER car company Finley Robertson Porter started his own car production (1914 - 1916).
A powerful high-class automobile, it combined features of effcieny and gasoline economy as well.  Production estimates vary from a high of twelve F.R.P. to a low of 3 [Kimes,Clark]. This emblem is from the Lee Roy Hartung collection that was put up to auction in 2011. A real five star emblem. I don´t know a second one.


Dimensions 5.7 cm
Year1914-1916
