        Excalibur? I think they were still producing a few automobiles that late.

          Didn't Jeep and AMC combine around 1983? They may still be counting them as two separate entities.

                Checker's last car was 1982, although they did contiue as a parts supplier.

                  Was the Delorean counted as an American auto maker, even though production was overseas, as with many companies/cars?

                    In this article , Avanti was just behind Excalibur up to '82 ,
                    but Excalibur is gone for '83 .

                      As others have stated in previous threads, Wikipedia is not 100% correct a lot of times. Here is a 1983 that is currently for sale:

                        Indeed , and Wikipedia itself points that out. They also ask for contributions of
                        knowledge .

                          Was Volkswagen still building cars in Pennsylvania at that point?
