Building the Kenosha Cadillac

The New Book of Knowledge.  NY:  Grolier Inc., 1979.
Rambler:  a name that started with Nash and ended with AMC before Renault took over.  According to Alfred P. Sloan, Jr.'s book, My Years with General Motors (Macfadden-Bartell, 1965), in  April 1916 Charles W. Nash formed the Nash Motors Company and three months later bought the Thomas B. Jeffery Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin, a former bicycle manufacturer which produced an automobile called the Rambler.  The last Rambler rolled off of the assembly line 10 years before this encyclopedia was published.
