The AEROCAR Company of Detroit Michigan was a short lived company ( 1906 - 1908 ).
Their slogan was: The car for to-day, tommorrow, and years to come.
They used an air-cooled engine designed by Milton O. Reeves
In 1907 they offered a water - cooled engine designed by Leo Melanowski.
After financial troubles they were out of business in 1908.
Then the factory was used to build the first HUDSON.

To my knowledge there was only one radiator emblem.
In 1906 it wasn´t common yet to use  enamelled emblems so this badge is made of brass only.
