The Liberty was a U.S. Army project to provide large numbers of aircraft engines in the minimum amount of time.  The engine was designed by Packard and Hall-Scott incorporating design concepts from both engine manufacturers.

Intended for production in 4, 6, 8 and 12 cylinder models, only the 12 cylinder was produced in large numbers.

Liberty was not an actual manufacturer but an engine designed and manufactured by established automobile engine factories.
