Supplying the two-cylinder car to be built was Fred S. Duesenberg and his brother August.
The car was named for E.R.Mason, a local attorney who supplied the money.
Their slogan was: " The Fastest and Strongest Two-Cylinder Car in America "
They sold 1,472 cars in 5 years. The best year was 1910 with more than 400 cars.
