1884 Automobile History

In 1883, Frenchman Edouard Delamare-Deboutteville and his assistant, Leon Malandin, designed and built an automobile with a gas powered engine. Due to problems with the gas lines, they redesigned the engine to run on fuel oil using a wick carburetor, which Delamare-Deboutteville patented. In early February, 1884, Delamare-Deboutteville drove his car on the road from Fontaine-le Bourg to Cailly, Normandy.
