The Premocar was manufactured in Birmingham, Alabama from 1918-1923.  It started production as the Preston, but ran into financial difficulties, reorganized as the Preston Motors Corporation and renamed the automobile the Premocar. Models including Touring Car, Roadster, Sedan Coupe, California Top, Preston Truck, and even a race car called the Premocar Magic Six.  A special model was built for President Harding's visit to Birmingham in 1921 for their bi-centennial celebration.  It was solid white, with white leather interior.  A complete history of the Premocar can be found in the book, Premocar Made in Birmingham.
