The Queen was a Canadian automobile manufactured in Toronto between 1901 and 1903 by the Queen City Cycle & Motor Works. The car was a 4-seater powered by an 823cc single-cylinder engine mounted under the front seat.[1]

The clutch and gearbox were so rough that passengers were sometimes thrown out.[1]

In 1903 company president Cornelius Ryerson gave up on the company and purchased a Cadillac.[1]
