Stoddard-Dayton was a high quality car manufacturer in Dayton, Ohio, USA, between 1904 and 1913. This make is built by John Stoddard, the son of a Dayton paint and varnish manufacturer.
The early cars had 4605cc engines. Six-cylinder engines appeared in 1907. In 1909, Stoddard-Dayton formed the Courier Car Co in Dayton to produce a lower-priced car, the Courier. The final range consisted of three four-cylinder models and a sleeve valve six. The first pace car ever was a Stoddard-Dayton driven by Carl G. Fisher to start the Indianapolis 500 in 1911.
The company became part of the United States Motor Company and went down when that failed in 1913.
