Speedwell Motor Car Company
The Speedwell Motor Car Company was an American automobile manufacturer that was in operation from 1907 to 1912. The company was based in Dayton, Ohio, and was founded by Carl G. Fisher, James A. Allison, and Arthur C. Newby. Fisher, Allison, and Newby later went on to co-found the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The Speedwell Motor Car Company produced a range of vehicles, including touring cars, roadsters, and sedans. The company was known for its high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, and its vehicles were popular with consumers.
However, despite its initial success, the Speedwell Motor Car Company faced financial difficulties and was eventually forced to close its doors in 1912. Fisher, Allison, and Newby would go on to have successful careers in the automotive industry, with Fisher later co-founding the Lincoln Motor Company and Allison co-founding the Allison Engine Company.
