Not too many takers today, but George has this. This is a 1902 American Daimler model 22 6 hp delivery wagon from the Daimler Manufacturing Company of Long Island. The body was made By Currier Cameron, & Co. There is very little info available about this vehicle, so I do not know if it was imported or built in the US. I suspect the chassis was built in Germany. Thanks to Mike W for the photo, and Bill White has reminded me that he has sent this also. Dan Souday sent the 1902 ad.

Here is a little on William Steinway.

When Gottlieb Daimler visited New York as a member of a male voice choir he chanced to meet William Steinway and as a result Steinway founded Daimler Motor Company in Long Island New York.opening on September 29, 1888. It was to sell Cannstatt made engines and, from 1891, engines made under license by the National Machine Company of Hartford, Connecticut. USA-Daimler started making their own automobile and stationary engines in 1895 followed a decade later under new ownership by perhaps one complete automobile.

Steinway confidently explained to the press: "The fuel, petroleum, costs about one cent per hp and hour, making the automobile considerably less expensive than horse power. We already had a horseless vehicle here in 1893 but it was too lightly built for the rough cobblestone streets we have in this country”.
Change of ownership

Following Steinway's early death in 1896, his heirs weren't convinced by the project and sold all their shares to the General Electric Company in 1898. The factory was renamed Daimler Manufacturing Company and produced some light trucks and perhaps between 1905 and 1907 some cars identical with some Cannstatt models.
