The American Locomotive Company was a manufacturer of railway locomotives. In 1905, the American Locomotive Automobile Company was established and an agreement was made to manufacture the French Berliet motor car in America. The car was called the American Locomotive Motor Car but was widely known as the American Berliet.

The American Berliet that took part in the 1907 Glidden Tour may have had an emblem or small nameplate on the radiator but the original photos are not clear enough to confirm the details, see photo below. It is possible that this may be the radiator manufacturer's nameplate.
