Kensington Automobile Mfg. Co.

1899 1904 Buffalo, NY

The Kensington company made cars powered by gasoline, steam, and electricity. The steam and electric cars had a similar appearance, both being very simple two-passenger runabouts, the steamer using a 2-cylinder 4 hp engine and single chain drive. In 1902 a gasoline car with an 11 hp 2-cylinder Kelecom engine was introduced, and for one season, all three motive powers were used. Steamers were dropped in 1903, and all manufacture ceased the following year.[1]
