GM / FRANCE

 

 GM / FRANCE  ( 1924 - 1928 )

It is not so easy to identify this emblem. When you read GM, you automatically think of General Motors, but that's completely wrong. This emblem comes from the French automobile brand GENDRON et MICHELOT, which offered  relatively unsuccessful mid-size cars from 1924 to 1928. As far as I know, about 200 vehicles were produced.

 A few years ago, some factory emblems appeared on the market. Apparently there was still a spare parts stock, which was now sold among collectors, so despite the rarity of the vehicle, the emblem was relatively easy to find.
