Despite the small number of cars built over the run of American Austin and Bantam cars, the company put out a large variety of literature. As a club, we should be extremely happy for all of the items that still exist to this day. Caretakers of the hobby have ensured that there is even at least one set of original blue prints for American Austins and Bantams in existence. Both the ABS and AABC have very good literature offerings for owners and enthusiasts.
