The American Motors Co.
Indianapolis, Indiana
1912-1915

The American Motor Car Co. of Indianapolis, Indiana made an American Automobile from 1905 to 1915. The original American was designed by Harry Stutz. When Stutz left The American Motor Car Co. in 1906, Fred Tone took over as chief engineer and designed the American Underslung.

Early American Motor Car Co. automobiles were made with a conventional chassis. A conventional chassis was very high on the wheels, the side rails above the axles. With an underslung chassis the rails were below the axles. The underslung models became a good selling point and by 1911 all American Motor Car Co. automobiles had a underslung chassis.

Features included a three speed transmission, 105 inch wheel base, 36 inch wheels and tires, self starter, Warner speedometer, mohair top and the color was American wine with black fender.

Six cylinder automobiles were introduced for the final 1914 model year. Over the years the American Underslung went from "A Car For The Discrimating Few" to "American's Prettiest Car" and finally "America's Most Luxurious Car" with a hefty price and too few customers.
