For Sale at Auction: 1940 Custom Automobile in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

American Austin Car Company was founded in 1929, in Butler, PA. Their intention was to assemble and sell, in the United States, a version of the Austin 7 car, called the American Austin. After some initial success, the Great Depression set in, and sales fell off to the point that production was suspended. In 1934, the company filed for bankruptcy. In 1935, the company was reorganized under the name American Bantam. Production resumed in 1937 and continued through 1941. From 1937 until the end of 1941, only 6,000 Bantams were produced. This has a 45.6ci inline-4 engine with a 3-speed transmission. They had a top speed of 50 mph, and styling resembled a small Chevrolet. This great auto was restored 10 years ago.
