Freeman Motor Car Co. (1920)

Omaha, Nebraska

Cleveland, Ohio

This is a Freeman Six radiator emblem (1920)     sam
Size: 53mm diameter     MM: Unknown (poss Robbins)

F.L.Freeman was the General Manager of the Freeman Motor Car Company of Omaha. The company announced in early 1920 that it had a plant in Cleveland, where it planned to produce cars and trucks. The Standard Catalog reports that a prototype Freeman car appears to have been built but this did not proceed to production.


The green and white enamel Freeman Six radiator emblem shown above was presumably made for the proposed production and may have been used on the prototype Freeman car. This Freeman Six radiator emblem is extremely rare.

A blue enamel version of this Freeman Six emblem is also known to exist, see photo shown below. It is possible that alternative color sample emblems were made before the decision not to proceed with production of the Freeman. This Freeman radiator emblem is also extremely rare.
