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 and these cars left an indelible mark upon the world. As a club, we should be extremely happy for all of the items that still exist to this day and which are still being created.

This library is a work in progress which contains social resources for enthusiasts, historical information, and technical information.  Feel free to browse the offerings and satisfy your curiosity.  If you have anything to contribute, please feel free to contact us.  The more information we can host, the better!
