|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The Ware Steam Wagon was the first self-propelled American vehicle to be manufactured for export. Elijah Ware, of Bayonne, New Jersey, manufactured the Wagon between 1861 and 1867. In 1866 one of his vehicles was shipped to Rustico, Prince Edward Island, where it had been ordered by a Catholic priest known only as Father Belcourt. Unlike other steam powered contraptions of the time, this did not run on a rail system.
