These little machines are something I've always wanted to pick up. 2 years ago I missed a complete and running Bantam that sold in the double digits. $75.00 to be exact... I missed it by less than an hour. :wallbanging:

At 75 they stole it. Back my way one not running and very rusty goes for 6 to 700 easily. Mine's really rough but complete with the front rotary mower and I wouldn't sell it for less than 9. That was steal.

There was a Bantam car made. It went through a few name changes,company receivership changes...

Austin, Bantam, American Austin, American Bantam. I'm still trying to find if there's any connection to the tractors.

The cars were made in Butler, Pennsylvania... ring any "bells" with anyone?



I was born in Butler & yes the Bantam Car Company was located there @ one time. (before my time actually)

It should ring a bell W/anyone that remembers the WW-II "Jeep". The winning prototype was presented by Bantam.

Unfortunately the US government did not feel that Bantam could produce the numbers needed & the "Bantam" design "Jeep" was built under license by Ford & Willys.

Some history here. http://www.allpar.co...antam-jeep.html
