The Automobile Company of America produced an American Automobile called the Gasmobile. The production factory was in Marion, NJ and sales office was located at 34 Broadway New York, NY. The company was only in production from 1900 to 1902.

In 1902 a Panhard style $8,000.00 six cylinder 35 horsepower "H C Gasmobile" was built that could do 70 miles per hour. It was one of the fastest of the day. Changes made in 1902 included an addition of a Gasmobile Tonneau and this automobile was designed closely upon French lines, but possessing some novel points. The engine is a six cylinder that developed 35 horsepower placed horizontally in opposed sets of three across the carriage under the front bonnet. The jump spark distributor for all the cylinders is mounted under glass upon the dash in plain view of the operator, and its cam shaft is operated by chain from the engine. The transmission is of the Panhard type with four speeds forward and reverse, and the power acts by chain upon sprockets on both driving wheels. A steering wheel replaced the tiller steering used on previous models. The clutch and brake are operated, by foot pedals and the gear is shifted and the emergency brake applied by hand levers. Small levers upon the steering wheel serve to regulate the spark lead and the mixture and a governor is used to automatically limit the engine speed. The wheelbase is 101 inch, the wheels were made of wood, 36 inches in diameter and equipped with 4-inch tires.

The Gasmobiles were advanced in design and generally well built. They were considered a show car and a racer. The one big problem this early American Automobile had was the cost. On September 8, 1902, the Gasmobile project came to an end.
