The America was built by the Motor Car Co. of America, New York City, New York in 1911. It was available in five models, all with an L-head 4-cylinder engine giving off 40 hp (30 kW). The torpedo, capable of holding two passengers, had a long, low silhouette and a rounded aft-section. Unusually, these cars had an auxiliary 1.5 US gal (5.7 L; 1.2 imp gal) fuel tank. It is claimed that this company was later associated with McIntyre Automobile.
