The Duquesne Motor Car Co.
Pittsburg, PA

The Duquesne Motor Car Company of Pittsburg, PA was organized by local interests and took over the 60,000 sq. ft. of floor space in the building of the Pittsburgh Gage & Supply Company in 1912.

The promoters promise to manufacture 500 pleasure cars as the first year's output employing 250 men at the outset.

The first model was a five passenger Touring Car equipped with a four-cylinder Wisconsin engine that developed 50 horsepower. It had electric self-starter and electric lights. Designs were also made for a six-cylinder, seven-passenger model. W. L. Rodgers was president and R. F. Ramsey is treasurer. Frank H. Morse, the developer of the Kissel Kars, was engineer, and Oscar J. Howick, former designer of the Lozier car, was designer.
