OLYMPIAN / USA

The OLYMPIAN Motors Company started its car production on the old Cartercar plant in Pontiac / Michigan in 1917. They offered the car in five different colors ( white, green, blue, red and gray) which was quite unusual.                 Their slogan was:  The Car for the "Masses" and for the "Classes".
The first year they sold 217 cars. The best year was 1919 with 713 cars. In 1920 they stopped the production. In  four years 1,580 cars only were built so the emblem is a hard to find item.
