Overview

K-R-I-T cars were produced in Detroit between 1909 - 1916, and were apparently well liked by those who drove them.

Krit occupied two different sites during its history, the first one it took over from the Blomstrom car and in 1911 moved to the works that had been used by      R. M. Owen & Company who had moved to become Owen Magnetic.


 

 A conventional 4 cylinder engine powered this car, of which many were exported to Europe and Australia.  World War I killed sales, and the company folded in 1916.  Although too early to have any political connotations, the        K-R-I-T logo was a black swastika on a white ground, and good marketing made it possible to buy tie-pins and cufflinks in this design.
