The Duryea, one of America's first gasoline-powered automobiles, was built by brothers Charles and J. Frank Duryea. The vehicle, completed by J. Frank, had a single-cylinder, four-horsepower engine mounted beneath a carriage body and featured friction drive. Each brother continued in the automobile industry. In 1895, Charles Duryea organized the first company for manufacturing gasoline-powered cars, Duryea Motor Wagon Company of Springfield, Massachusetts. J. Frank went to the East Coast, where he partnered to create the Stevens-Duryea motorcar. In 1900, Charles moved to Reading, PA, where he incorporated the Duryea Power Company of Reading. He began production of three-cylinder, three -wheel models capable of traveling at twenty miles per hour. While the trend in the industry was leading to the use of the steering wheel, Duryea continued to prefer the tiller.
