The Electric Autolite Company

The Electric Autolite Company was a manufacturer of wide variety of automotive electric components. In 1961, the Ford Motor Company took over the Autolite name as well as spark plug and battery factories. Starter, generator, regulator, and ignition systems continued to be produced by the Prestolite Motor and Ignition Company (Prestolite Electric) but without the Autolite name.
