Bell Motor Cars Company was an American automobile company, based in York, Pennsylvania.[1] They were also built under license in Barrie, Ontario.[2] Unrelated cars named Bell were built in England (1905-1914) and France (1923-1925).[3]

Bell, an assembler rather than a manufacturer, offered light cars with a Herschell-Spillman engine, Westinghouse starter and generator, Stromberg carburetor, Warner steering, Muncie transmission, and Atwater-Kent (domestic) or Simms magneto (export) ignition system.
