The Moon Motor Company, based in St. Louis, Missouri, US, was placed into receivership. The company had a venerable reputation among the buying public, as it was known for fully assembled, easily affordable mid-level cars using high-quality parts. Often this meant the manufacturing process required more human intervention, leading to operating losses. The company was founded in 1905 by carriage maker Joseph W. Moon. Moon produced both cars and trucks. Moon Motor’s peak production year was 1925 when the company produced 10,271 vehicles.
