In February of 1922 a D. A. C. Touring Car prototype appeared at the Detroit Auto Show and in December a Sedan was exhibited in New York and Chicago. Very few D. A. C. automobiles were made. The DAC Phaeton model sold for $1,250, the Touring Car for $1,700, and sedan $1,750. Bodies for the D. A. C. were specially designed out of aluminum and made by John McArthur in Detroit.

The D. A. C. was equipped with a six cylinder engine. It was a interesting development in air cooled design with a staggered Vee arrangement of six cylinders. The design permitted air to be directed to each cylinder in equal volume and at the same temperature.
