A Duryea motor wagon won America"s first trophy race in November1895 in the Chicago area. n November 6, 1901, Frank Stevens entered into a contract with the W. J. Stevens Arms and Tool Co. to build cars called the Stevens Duryea. From March 1902, fifty cars were built and sold that year. The Model L"s were built in 1903 and 1904. The company was the first in the industry to offer a six cylinder car in 1906-1907. It is estimated that 14,000 cars were built until the company postponed production indefinitely in 1915. When the company ceased production they were entirely free of debt and had marketable assets on their balance sheets. Stevens Duryea shared the position with Locomobile as being the most costly and highest quality production cars of that era.
