In 1917 the PATRIOT was founded by the HEBB MOTORS Co to build trucks. Previously the HEBB factory was active in the automobile body work branch.

Their slogan was: " Made in the West, built for the world ".  Nevertheless, they had only local significance. A relevant export to foreign countries is not ascertainable.

A passenger car was planed in 1920. However, only a protype was built, but PATRIOT trucks were manufactured until 1926. That year the company name changed to WOODS.


To my knowledge there was only one enameled radiator emblem:
