M P Moller Motor Car Co. (1927-1931)

Hagerstown, Maryland

This is a Paramount taxicab radiator emblem (1927-1931)     mjs
Size: 63mm diameter     MM: Robbins

The Paramount was a smart taxi cab built by the M P Moller Motor Car Company in Hagerstown, makers of the Dagmar motor car (see Dagmar), and marketed by the Paramount Cab Manufacturing Company of New York City. 

The Paramount was a six-cylinder model with a small rear window to provide privacy for the passengers and carried the slogan "The Cab Beautiful". Advertisements proclaimed that the new Paramount was "the ultimate in smart, luxurious transportation". A super luxury version was also available as the Super Paramount.


The black and red enamel Paramount taxicab radiator emblem shown above is very rare.
