OM / Italy

The Italian Officine Meccaniche (OM)  took control of the ZUEST automobile concern in 1918.
In fact the first car under their name was the old 25/35 hp ZUEST.   OM cars won the 1925 Tripoli Grand Prix and the 1927 Mille Miglia race. Car production ceased in 1931 and OM concentrated on commercial vehicles. The last  truck with an OM emblem was approximately built  in 1979.
