AM General at 50

Celebrating fifty years of service as a company, and over one hundred years of transportation solutions.

AM General can trace its automotive heritage back to the early 20th century with the Standard Wheel Company and the long legacy of Studebaker-built military vehicles.

In 1964, Kaiser-Jeep began military vehicle production in South Bend after acquiring Studebaker’s military contracts and Chippewa Avenue plant. The American Motors Corporation (AMC) purchased Kaiser-Jeep’s Jeep division in 1970, and in 1971 retooled Jeep’s General Products Division into a new subsidiary, AM General.
