The Buckeye Mfg. Co.

John W. Lambert made a three wheel car in Ohio City, Ohio in 1891, which is generally considered to be the first gasoline powered American Automobile.

In 1893 John Lambert, his brother and father began building stationary gas engines under the Buckeye Mfg. Co. name and later the Lambert Gas & Gasoline Engine Company with factories first in Union City, Ohio then in Anderson, Indiana.

His automobile interest was jump started in 1902 when he formed The Union Automobile Co. in Union, IN. Lambert produced the Union automobile there from 1902 to 1905. In 1905 production moved to Anderson where it gave way to new models carrying Lamberts own name. The first Lambert automobile was sold June 1, 1905. In 1906 a wide variety of chain driven automobiles were made, all with a Friction Drive.
