Motoemil Three-Wheelers

Manufactured in Thessaloniki by the brothers Konstantinos and Emilios Antoniades whose first machines were created using motorcycle and automobile parts in the 1950s. By the early 1960s they were building automotive-style three-wheeler trucks. Motoemil became the largest producer in Northern Greece and their machines were sold via a network of agencies throughout the country. Initially they used 1200cc Volkswagen air-cooled engines and from around 1970s began using Ford engines from Germany.

Four-wheel trucks were introduced in the mid-1970s. Automotive production was abandoned in 1985. The firm remains in business, with a website at emiliostrailers.com.
