After Maibohm Motors collapsed in July 1922 (see Maibohm), Arrow Motors was set up to continue production of a refined Maibohm car under a new name. But, within a month there was another change and the company was reorganized as Courier Motors.

The Courier was a 46 hp six-cylinder car offered in a variety of body styles and was introduced for the 1923 model year but died a few months later after a total production of only 373 cars.

Emblems
