Connelly Motor Streetcar/Trolley in New York. This is one of the earliest uses of a gasoline powered motor in a trolley.  It shows a conductor at the controls. The side of the streetcar shows patent dates from 1886. This is railway car number 1.  Streetcars made by Connelly Motor Company operated on the Brooklyn Flatbush & Coney Island Railway. Also was used on the Elizabeth & Newark Horse Railroad. These cars didn’t last too long due to the smell of the exhaust and the noise. In 1878 the first American patent on a gasoline motor was filed by The Connelly Motor Company of New York. It advertised automobiles for sale in 1888, thus constituting one of the earliest known (and perhaps the first) gasoline driven motor cars available to the public. The Daimler and the Duryea were offered for sale in 1891 and 1892, respectively.
