Francis Richard, a Frenchman and engineer came to Port Jefferson, NY in 1909 to produce an American Automobile called the "Only". However, this automobile didn't sell very well due to the unreliable one cylinder engine. In 1913 Richard reorganized the Only Motor Car Co. into The Metropol Motors Corp. and produced a 2 seater roadster and a 4 passenger touring car.

The Metropol was equipped with a 4 cylinder engine with 448 cubic inches and developed 90 horsepower. The 2 seater roadster and 4 passenger touring car were sold for $1350. Francis Richard's "Metropol" and "Only" automobiles were not very popular and sales were poor on both. Richard sold the factory to Karl Peters who produced the Maxim Tricar which was a 3 wheel delivery car steered by tiller.
