The Harroun was an automobile manufactured in Wayne, Michigan by the Harroun Motor Sales Corporation from 1917-22. The company bore the name of its founder, racing legend Ray Harroun, who in 1911 won the first Indianapolis 500 Sweepstakes. There were three models offered, a roadster and a touring car (each priced at $595) and a sedan ($850), each powered by the company's own four-cylinder engine. It is estimated that approximately 1000 vehicles were sold during the first four years of operation.

In the Spring of 1918 production was suspended to manufacture war materials, and was not resumed until 1921.
