Durant Motors Star logo.
The Star was an automobile marque that was assembled by the Durant Motors Company between 1922 and 1928. Also known as the Star Car, Star was envisioned as a competitor against Ford's Model T.
Like other products of the Durant Motors Company, the Star was an "assembled" car, built from parts supplied by various outside companies. Originally, Star cars were powered by a four cylinder engine; in 1926 the line introduced a six cylinder engine. All factory-installed engines for the Star were built by Continental.
For the early part of the 1928 model year, the Star was known as the Durant Star and was only available with a four cylinder engine. The car was replaced in the later half of the 1928 model year by the Durant 4.
