The Noma was introduced at the New York Automobile Show in January 1919 and was the only new marque on display. The Noma was an assembled 55hp six-cylinder automobile, distinguished by its handsome, low-slung coachwork and distinctive radiator. The body was an aluminium skin over a laminated wooden frame. The Noma was initially offered in speedster and foursome body styles.

Over 600 cars were built before Noma production ceased in 1923.

Emblems

The black and white enamel Noma radiator emblem shown above at the top of this post is rare.

The Smithsonian emblem collection shows a Noma radiator emblem with the colors reversed, see photo below, but it is believed that this emblem has been restored in the wrong colors, as many other emblems in the collection are similarly restored in incorrect colors.

This Noma emblem appears to have been restored in the wrong colors  sac
