British-American Motors

Post by oldwyoboy » Sun Apr 15, 2018 7:12 pm

I am beginning the very first steps of research for the restoration of my 1910 IHC J-30. My understanding is that the engine was manufactured by "British-American Motors".
I have found a handful of references to the engine, including one used in a famous early aircraft. But, all in all, I know nothing about it.

I assume that it must have been used in some other early automobiles. It has a lot in common with an old "American LaFrance" engine i saw years ago in a Firetruck.

Does anyone have any information, or know where the company was Chartered, etc?

Any help would be appreciated.

The HCFI Automotive Research Library may have some documentation. You might try calling or submitting a research request:
