The Stanley model 70 five-passenger touring car (top), with a larger back seat, and model 71 four-passenger toy tonneau (bottom) were introduced in 1910. these cars were both rated at 20 hp. There were 259 of the popular Model 70 produced between 3/3/1910 and 8/3 /1912 produced. There were 124 of the less popular model 71 produced between 3/3/1910 and 3/5/1911. The model 71 had a much larger water tank, placed under the rear seat with the fuel tank moved to the front, the opposite configuration of the model 70, but a concept that would be carried on to later coffin-nose Stanley models.
