VERMOREL / France

The "Etablissements Vermorel" started already car production in 1900. The first car, with a two-cylinder 10hp  engine won a Gold medal at the exposition in Lyon. A serial production was established in 1908 / 1909.  The first Vermorel car with an oval brass radiator  emblem was seen in 1910. Car production ceased in 1930. In thirty years 7,800 cars were built.


The first VERMOREL cars had an oval brass emblem
The first enameled radiator emblem was seen on the radiator in 1909. May be the brass and the enameled emblem were produced parallel to each other.
On the badge you find the  drawing of the car itself.  What a nice idea ( even if the same idea can be seen on radiator emblems from   REO,    ELGIN    MARION,   KISSEL  and some more.
This emblem is a highly sought - after item for any collector.

the emblem was printed on the brochure




In the mid - twenties VERMOREL cars had a radiator without emblem, the script was judged to be sufficient

For the last VERMOREL car,  the type AD, the  emblem was modernized, now showing the signature of the founder, Victor Vermorel. Only few cars were built so this is another very hard to find item.


again I had to buy the whole radiator to get the emblem
