Croxton Motor Co. (1910-1911)

Consolidated Motor Car Co. (1911)

Cleveland, Ohio

Croxton Motor Co. (1912-1914)

Washington, Pennsylvania

This is a Croxton emblem (1910-1911)    sam
Size: 48mm diameter   MM: Unknown

The Croxton Motor Company was established in 1910 when the Croxton-Keeton Motor Car Company went into receivership (see Croxton-Keeton). Initially the Croxton was simply the Croxton-Keeton with a new emblem with some new models also being introduced. All Croxton models had four-cylinder engines in sizes from 30 hp up to 48 hp.

In March 1911, the Croxton Motor Company joined with the Royal Tourist Car Company and the Acme Body & Veneer Company to form the Consolidated Motor Car Company but this did not work out and the company was dissolved a few months later. 

The Croxton Motor Company was re-established and a new factory was opened in Washington, Pennsylvania in late 1912. A six-cylinder Croxton model was introduced in 1912 alongside the four-cylinder models. However, Croxton was soon in financial trouble and it was all over by early 1914.


The Croxton emblem shown above is extremely rare. This Croxton emblem may have been used as a radiator emblem but I cannot confirm this.

It is possible that there was an enamelled Croxton radiator emblem similar to the radiator emblem used on the  "German" style Croxton-Keeton (see Croxton-Keeton) but this is not confirmed. It is also possible that there was a different emblem for the Croxton car built in Washington, Pennsylvania. If such Croxton emblems do exist they would be extremely rare. If you have details or photos of any of these emblems, please let me know, in order to update this post.
