A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Auto Dealer Collection - The love affair with the automobile is contagious, international, and shows no signs of ending. Auto racing in all parts of the world continues as the most intense and by far the major proving ground for progress in the industry, ever since the first cumbersome steam powered devices appeared in the early 1800’s, mainly used for freight hauling. But the patenting of the gasoline engine by Italians Barsanti and Matteucci in 1853 made possible the first crude, but practical autos. In Europe, Karl Benz is generally acknowledged as producing the first successful petro-powered motor car in 1853. It was a three wheeled bicycle-like device, with a single front steering wheel, a 0.8 horsepower 4-stroke engine, with a heavy rear flywheel mounted horizontally for fear of upsetting the single steering wheel, which was mounted vertically in front. Benz’s first four wheel auto was the 1894 “Viktoria”, followed by the 1895 “Velo”, and then the larger “Phaeton”, “Jagdwagon”, “Landau”, and the stage-coach type “Omnibus”. The first successful American car was a three-wheeler developed by John W. Lambert in Ohio City in early 1891. In 1895 Charles and Frank Duryea founded the Duryea Motor Wagon Company in Springfield, Massachusetts. The U.S. auto industry literally exploded and by 1904 there were about 170 automobile companies in operation. Henry Ford, after a number of false starts, founded the Ford Motor Company in 1903, with Detroit becoming the primary production location. Ford's goal was to produce a durable auto for the masses that anyone could afford selling for $500. Since then the names Ford, Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Leland, Nash, Durant, Chrysler, and others have become U.S. household words, as have Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Austin, Morgan, Rolls-Royce and Renault. Key items in the early growth were the standardization and inter-changeability of parts, and the pioneer Henry Ford production line. The automobile and the industry is changing still, but the love affair continues. Auto Dealers!
