Roy Evans was an automotive enthusiast and salesman who acquired the American Austin Car Company, which had manufactured an American version of the British Austin 7 until 1934 when it filed for bankruptcy. Evans renamed the company and three years later launched the American Bantam. A total of 6,513 examples were eventually built in 11 body styles before production came to a close in 1940.

This 1938 American Bantam Roadster is powered by a 22 horsepower engine backed by a three-speed manual gearbox with four-wheel mechanical drum brakes. It is one of 512 examples built for 1938. In 2015 it received a concours quality restoration and finished in factory-inspired two-tone paint, with red side panel inserts over maroon. The interior is done in cream leather and there is a driver-operated spotlight. The current owner acquired the Roadster in 2018 from a collector in Texas.

This roadster has been driven approximately 100 miles since the restoration was completed.
