American Automobiles
The first self-powered American vehicles were steam-powered from 1871, and a vehicle from Oshkosh completed a 200-mile challenge race in 1878 taking 33 hours to do it. George B Selden patented a 'horseless carriage' with his own engine from 1877 and drew income from every single car sold by his licensees. But it was the Duryea brothers who designed the first American cars powered by gasoline in 1893 (Selden's patent was not granted until 1895). The J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. of Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts produced Duryea vehicles from 1901 to 1927 by which time cars from upstarts such as Oldsmobile and Packard (1899), Cadillac and Ford (1903) and others had amalgamated into great corporations such as General Motors, Chrysler, Ford, and American Motors.
