British-American Motor Company


Recommended Posts

Apparently, the British-American Motor Company, possibly in Connecticut, USA, supplied engines to International Harvester for use in approximately 1,100 J-30 touring cars in 1910-11. Anybody ever hear of that company? Yes, the connection to prewar military truck is thin, but IHC did supply a number of trucks for WWI. I am just looking to pin down the details of these engines. Thanks!

Best I can determine is that this company built engines in collaboration with International Harvester and they were used in some of IH's short-lived car lines of 1910 and 1911. I thought there might be a truck connection as well, namely the IHC Models F and G trucks used in WWI, but that does not now appear to be the case.
