The Dagmar was a sports version of the Crawford Automobile, made by the same highly regarded small-production company in Hagerstown, Maryland, throughout the 1910s and early 1920s.
This firm was a small car producer, but was also the world's largest builder of pipe organs, the M.P. Moller company.
The Dagmar, one of the most distinctive sporting cars in the United States, first appeared in 1922, and although the last Crawfords were sold in 1923, the Dagmar continued until 1927. Both open and closed models which featured straight-line fenders and all-brass trim instead of the then-conventional nickel.
The Dagmars were actually the basic Crawford car with sport treatment and were named for the daughter of M.p. Möller.
Powered by a continental 6-cylinder engine, additional body styles were added in 1923 and a year later, conventional fenders were available as an alternative to the straight type.

The final year for general production was 1926 and the last car built, an enormous 7-passenger sedan, was made in 1927 for Mr Möller when he
returned for a visit to his native Denmark with his family. Although only a few hundred Dagmars were built over a six-year period, the Moller interests also produced the Crawford and Standish cars as well as the Paramount, Luxor, Äqtor, Five Boro, 20th Century and Möller taxicabs.
