The M.P.M. was an automobile built in Mount Pleasant, Michigan by the Mount Pleasant Motor Company from 1914 to 1915. [1]


The M.P.M. was a medium-sized conventional car equipped with either a four-cylinder or eight-cylinder engine. After building 10 cars, financing could not be raised to continue production.[1]

The company had plans to move its manufacturing plant to either Alma or Saginaw at the end of 1915, but the company closed before that happened.[1]
