BLACKSTONE

Blackstone Motor Co. (1916)

Momence, Illinois


This is believed to be a Blackstone radiator emblem (1916)    sam
Size: 75mm wide 36mm high  MM: Unknown

The Blackstone was a very short-lived assembled motor car. Little is known about the Blackstone, other than there was a factory in Momence, Illinois and a general sales manager was appointed in November 1916. However, it was all over for the Blackstone by the end of 1916. Production numbers are unknown but are likely to have been very small indeed.

Emblem

The Blackstone radiator emblem shown above, if authentic, would be extremely rare.
