The Bantam 60 That's right..60 MPG!!! The Bantam was the successor to the American Austin, built at Butler from 1930 to 1934. Both cars were small, fuel-efficient and attractive in design. Bantam branded its cars with names like 'Riviera' and 'Hollywood' in direct contradiction to its shoestring budget. Perhaps Bantam's most enduring achievement was the production of the first successful 'Jeep' for the U.S. Army in 1940. The huge military contract, however, went to Ford and Willys. Bantam ended car production in 1941.

here's a little more Bantam info . .
THE RIVIERA was a four passenger convertible sedan. Bantams were made in many models including a woody station wagon, (introduced 1939) one of the first woody wagons!

The cars were tiny and looked like toys but were real cars with 22hp engines. They are cute and make ideal collector cars today...
