The Empire was an American automobile manufactured from 1910 until 1919. Marketed as "the little aristocrat", the Empire 20 was a four-cylinder shaft-driven runabout built in Indianapolis. The model "A" was a conventional runabout for three passengers with a rumble seat. The model "B" had two bucket seats, a longer hood and was geared higher to attain faster speeds.

More conventional bodywork was later offered; in April 1915 the marque announced production of a 35hp for 1916. The company's final products were a four of 3865 cc and a six of 3670 cc.
