HENRY BREWSTER (b.1824-d.1887) WILLIAM BREWSTER (b.1866-d.1949) - Lawrence & Brewster, 1852-1856; Brewster & Company, 1856-1874, Bridgeport, Connecticut; Brewster & Company,
1856-1926; New York, New York; Brewster & Company, 1910-1937; Long Island City, New York
From 1925-1934 Brewster & Company operated as a division of Rolls-Royce of America. From 1934-1936 Brewster & Company operated as a division of Springfield Mfg. Co.
Brewster historians have a hard time accounting for the 300 Brewsters that Inksip claims to have built between 1934 and 1936.
Ford records indicate that 135 V-8 cowl and chassis were shipped to Brewster. If you add the handful that were built on other chassis, that gives a grand total of about 140 Brewsters, slightly less than half of the 300 claimed by Inskip.
Rolls-Royce historians estimate that at least 425 Rolls-Royce chassis were fitted with Brewster bodies between 1914 and 1937, and a surprising number (close to 200)
remain in the hands of museums and collectors. An equally astounding number (52) of Brewster-badged automobile exist as well, 13 of the first series (1915-1925) and 39 of the second (1934-1936).
