Actually, the Wikipedia article is pretty interesting:
Not only an American company, but a good wholesome Pennsylvania company!!!
When Roy Evans formed American Bantam in 1935: "All ties to UK Austin
were severed. A series of changes were made to the American Austin car
design, including a modified engine and an exterior sheetmetal designed
by Alexis de Sakhnoffski."
Definitely an American car. Definitely. Why you would want to market an
automobile named after a chicken, I don't know. Doesn't have the same
cachet as Thunderbird or even Falcon...
