Frayer-Miller History

Little is known about Frayer-Miller company history except that the automobiles were built by Oscar-Lear Automobile Company in Springfield, Ohio. The Frayer-Miller shown here is the only one known to exist.

1908 Frayer-Miller sales literature presented eight models including a taxi cab and a commercial truck. Engines were air-cooled and were offered with either four or six cylinders. Full equipment for the Model B Touring included gas and oil lamps, horn, tools, battery and coil. The top was optional at a cost of $100.00.

A 1908 Frayer-Miller Touring model competed in the Long Island Economy Run. Under conditions of the contest, two hundred thirty-five miles had to be covered by the contestants within a time limit of 18 hours, the winner being the vehicle using the least amount of fuel. Twenty-three cars started and nineteen finished. The Frayer-Miller, carrying five passengers, won the contest by using only thirteen gallons of gasoline averaging 18 miles per gallon.
