    Historical Context

    The Champion Rotary Motors Co., Inc. was incorporated in New York in 1922, and was based in Buffalo.

     

    The company acquired the rights to build and distribute a rotary engine designed by the Augustine Automatic Rotary Engine Company.

     

    The engine was designed to be installed in one-ton trucks.

     

    It appears this company fell victim to the Great Depression after the 1929 crash.
