The Ohio Motor Vehicle Company was established in 1919 to produce the Ferris car. The Ferris was a well-built, expensive assembled car. It had high quality coachwork with an aluminum body and a distinctive high radiator.

Initially, the Ferris was a 50 hp six-cylinder model offered in touring, sport and sedan body styles. For 1922, 60 hp and 70 hp models were offered in a wide range of body styles but relatively few were built.

The postwar recession made sales of costly motor cars difficult and Ferris sales were poor. By June 1921 the company was in receivership and production ceased in 1922 having built a total of about 440 cars.


The metal Ferris radiator emblem shown above is very rare.

The metal Ferris emblem shown below may be a hub face emblem but I cannot confirm this. This Ferris emblem is also very rare.
