The Daniels Motor Company was a vintage era American automobile company, founded in Boston by George E. Daniels (former president of Oakland) and Neff E. Parish (owner of the Parish pressed steel company).

With custom coachwork the Daniels was a bespoke car only built to order, first using a Hershell-Spillman V8 engine and from 1919 on a proprietary V8.

The Daniels 8 was offered for a price of $7,450 in 1922. So the car was very, very expensive as you could buy for example an Oakland for $1,600.

A personality clash between George Daniels and Neff Parish was the end of the comnpany in 1924.
