The Warren Motor Car Company was organized in 1909 and the Warren motor car appeared in 1910. The Warren was a 30 hp four-cylinder car initially offered as a runabout or as a demi-tonneau. In 1911 the Warren was available in a wide range of body styles.

The Warren-Detroit radiator emblem is shown in some early advertisements and is seen in original photos, see examples below:

Some, but not all, early Warren cars displayed a Warren "30" script attached to the radiator core, see example below:

Warren introduced a six-cylinder model in early 1913 called the "Resolute Six" with a new Warren radiator emblem, see the following advertisement:

This new Warren radiator emblem is the red and black enamel Warren radiator emblem shown above at the top of this post, which may have appeared in late 1912 or early 1913, just before the Warren company ceased production. This may explain why the only examples of this emblem that I have seen have been unused N.O.S. emblems. This Warren radiator emblem is very rare. A genuine used Warren radiator emblem would be extremely rare.
