Technical specifications, photos and description:
Exotic Classics is pleased to present this charming 1939 American Bantam Speedster. Featured in a dashing two-tone Maroon and Silver combination with a Deusenberg-like sweep panel on each side. the car looks every bit like a diminutive American classic. The interior is matching Maroon with contrasting grey piping and grey carpets.
According to the AACA Museum. the American Bantam motorcars were manufactured in Butler. PA. from 1938 to 1940. They were a descendant of the American Austin. manufactured at the same location from 1930 through 1933. American Austin filed for bankruptcy and was later purchased and re-opened under the name American Bantam. by Roy S. Evans. The cars were touted as an economy car. offering up to 60 mpg. The 45 cubic-inch inline four-cylinder engine with updraft carburetor produced approximately 20 horsepower. The transmission is a three-speed. with synchromesh. manufactured by Warner. The Speedster is one of 13 body styles that were offered. Of this body style. there were approximately 323 vehicles produced from 1939 through 1940.
Our car is one of very few surviving Speedsters and it has been completely restored to the highest concours standards. Although small in size and power. the Bantam is simple. reliable. and a delight to drive. It is every inch a classic in an easy to manage size.

Can you please help? I have a 1939 Bantam that my husband started to restore. He is deceased and I would like to know if I decided to sell it what is the worth of this car. I have a ton of parts to go along with it.
