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.
The modern company came into being after American Motors Company (AMC) purchased the Jeep Corporation from Kaiser in 1970. Since 1964, Kaiser-Jeep had been manufacturing military vehicles in the old Studebaker plant in South Bend. In 1971, AMC made the General Products Division of Jeep—responsible for military truck production—into a new subsidiary, AM General.
