Continental Motors Company


Continental Motors produced engines for a variety of applications beginning in 1905. They also briefly produced Continental branded cars (the Ace, Flyer and Beacon) in the 1930's which were not particularly successful. During WWII the plant, like so many industrial manufacturers of the time, profited from the production of airplane engines for the war effort.

The company was involved in a lawsuit related to the smell and noise emanating from the plant. The company won but wound up closing the plant anyway in the 1970's. Continental Engines itself is no more, but portions of the company were bought up be Teledyne and production of Continental aviation engines continues today.
