The Bush Motor Company of Chicago lasted from 1916 to 1925 and was founded by John H. Bush.

The Bush was a mail-order car. When an order was received Bush sent the customer's check to an established company that built this car for him, for example Piedmont, Sphinx, Norwalk, Huffman and Crow-Elkhart.

Then a Bush nameplate was fitted to the radiator and the car was shipped directly to the customer. After 1925 no car producer was willing to deal with him this way and the Bush Motor Company went out of business.

The first Bush radiator emblem was round with blue enamel and white letters.
