The American Austin Car Company was established in 1929 north of Pittsburgh in Butler, Pennsylvania. The early cars were designed to appeal to buyers and combat the effects of the Depression on automobiles sales. The company later changed their name to the American Bantam Car Company, and produced a new economy vehicle called the Bantam. Nine different models of the Bantam Coupe were offered in 1940 through 1941, with prices ranging from $399 to $575. The convertible had a base price of $525, compared to $850 for a Ford convertible.

Roadsters of the 1920s and beyond had smoother and more powerful-lòòking bodies than their predecessors, including rumble seats and more attractive and functional tops. This auto fit perfectly into the tone of playfulness and success surrounding the roaring twenties and became a signature car for a new breed of country club businessmen.

Bantam cars, dependable and economical to operate were capable of speeds up to 40 miles per hour. The reasonable engine power combined wîth Bantam's stylish design made at a signature car for many people - some famous Bantam owners included Al Jolson, Buster Keaton and Ernest Hemingway.
