Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniels Motor Company was a pioneer brass era American automobile company, founded in 1916 by George E. Daniels (formerly of GM) in Reading, Pennsylvania.[1]

With custom coachwork, the Daniels was a bespoke car, built to order, offering a proprietary narrow-angle V8 as standard equipment, for a price (in 1922) of US$7,450.[2]

By contrast, the 1913 Lozier Big Six limousines and landaulettes were US$6,500, tourers and roadsters US$5,000; the Lozier Light Six Metropolian tourer and runabout started at US$3,250;[3] Americans ran from US$525 down to US$4250;[4] the Enger 40 was US$2000,[5] the FAL US$1750,[5] the Oakland 40 US$1600,[6] and both the Cole 30 US$1500,[5] and Colt Runabout were US$1500.[7] Below that, presumably, a Daniels customer would not have looked.
