American Austin and Bantam

The American Austin Car Company was an American automobile manufacturing corporation based in Butler, Pennsylvania. The company was founded in 1929 and produced cars through 1934 although there are some models claimed to be built in 1935. The company filed bankruptcy, but was reorganized under the name American Bantam, resuming production for the 1938 model year. American Bantam produced civilian vehicles through 1940 with some exceptions, and created the jeep and subsequently turning its manufacturing towards the production of wartime necessities. The company emerged from the war to be purchased by other companies that still survive. Two clubs exist to support the enthusiasts of both the cars produced by American Austin and American Bantam.
