1900 - 1903
1900 saw the formation of the Conrad Motor Carriage Company in Buffalo, New York State, to make light steam cars. The 'runabouts' that were produced were similar to Locomobile steamers in layout and appearance, but two commercial-bodied styles were also available. In 1902 a duo of two-cylinder internal-combustion engined models of 8 and 12hp were introduced both of which had single chain drive and wheel steering. Unfortunately the business did not long survive the death of the company's President at the end of 1902 and an attempt in 1904 to revive the petrol-driven cars which were marketed as the 'Lackawanna' (qv) came to naught.
