The American Austin Car Company was founded in 1929 in Butler, Pennsylvania and produced automobiles licensed from the British Austin Motor Company from 1930 until 1934 until they filed for bankruptcy. The company reorganized using the name American Bantam in 1935. This delightful, fully functioning 1930 Five Window Coupe is a great example of what could have been had America embraced the idea of building smaller automobiles. Originally designed with the hope of creating a market for small car enthusiasts in the United States; this Austin is powered by its original 747cc (45.6 cu. in) in-line four cylinder engine, complete with its original six volt battery and charging system. Coupled with a three-speed standard transmission, this little coupe is capable of 40 mpg and nearly 50 mph. Its stylish body lines were penned by Alexis de Sakhnoffsky and manufactured by the Hayes Body Company of Detroit. With an original brown Mohair interior and only one repaint from new, it comes as no surprise that the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) bestowed this car with a Historical Preservation Original Features award in 2013. Regardless of whether you are a collector looking for a rare and unique piece of American automotive history to add to your collection or you just want to stand apart from the crowd; this little Austin is a true treasure.
