The American Motor Car Company debuted its first car in 1905. Designed by Harry Stutz, who later formed the famous company bearing his name. Mr. Stutz left the company in 1906 and Fred L. Tone took over as chief engineer. Mr. Tone re-designed the chassis/suspension system by reversing the arrangement. The upside-down or underslung was an industry first and gave the vehicle a racy stance.
This particular 1910 Traveler in 1 of 300 units produced in 1910 and is 1 of 2 still in existence. It is equipped with a 50 horsepower engine with 5 3/8 inch x 5 5/8 inch 4-cylinder Teetor-Hartley engine, it carried a sales price of $5,000.
Mr. E. C. Deemer purchased the car new, and also owned 3 other Americans of earlier vintage. The car has remained in the family until the 1990's except this example. This car under-went a 17 year restoration to original factory standards.
The current owner purchased the car in 2005 from the Harris family in Ohio, which had previously purchased and owned 3 of the original Deemer cars.Also photographed at :
