The Rayfield was an American automobile line manufactured from 1911 until 1915 by the Rayfield Motor Car Co. Dashboard-radiatored 18 hp fours and 22 hp sixes touring cars were built in Springfield, Illinois and a few cyclecars in Chrisman, Illinois. All featured popular Rayfield downdraft carburetors. Lack of capital and production experience led to financial failure.
