· 1910 Stanley Model 71 Roadster-Toy Tonneau
The history of the Stanley Brothers and the cars has been well documented, most recently in The Stanley Steamer: America’s Legendary Steam Car by Kit Foster. After selling their dry plate film business they ventured into automobiles. Steam was their choice. One of their most significant achievements was the wire wound boiler. This innovation greatly decreased the boiler weight from more conventional ones and thereby reduced the boiler to chassis ratio. So successful was this car that by 1899 they had buyers for their new company and its patents. The sale resulted in the Locomobile and later the Mobile steam car. The new partners disagreed over the future development of their cars and sold the patent rights back to the Stanley brothers. A new and improved Stanley was introduced in 1904. Most noticeable was the introduction of the horizontally mounted engine, this feature as well as the wire wound boiler would last till the end of production.

Stanley Model 60 engine as spare or to restore
Number 6X 625 on frame dates it to 1911. Frame rods and block seem in good order, block flanges crack tested and seem OK. Missing pistons, piston rods, and connecting rods, all of which are parts which would normally be replaced in restoration.
Also lacks valve slides and valve chest cover. Includes new cranks made in EN 24T and a new high ratio 47 tooth crank gear and the exhaust manifold. I had intended to use this engine in a proposed steam special in a light vintage chassis, however a recent house move and other projects make the completion of this unlikely.
As seen £950. Buyer to collect Harrogate area. email email@example.com
1929 Auburn Model 125F Cabriolet. $63000.00 It is a totally original car that has sat in a garage since 1962. It has its original engine and transmission. It is likely the most unique Auburn in the world as it was converted to steam in Circa 1934 by its original owner who invented some technology related to steam power and wished to put it to use prior to applying for a US patent.
The car was purchased new in 1929 by Osmond Campbell of Saint Joseph, Missouri. He drove the car for a few years and during that time, the Great Depression hit. The result for him was that the Auburn was now nearly worthless to trade in on his new car so when he purchased his new car, he kept the Auburn to try out a new invention related to steam power and operation. As a result, in 1934, he converted the car to steam power.
Campbell kept the car until at least the mid-1940's. There are pages and pages of documentation during his ownership including schematics, descriptions, drawings, letters with various suppliers and letters between him and the Department of Commerce seeking and being granted a patent approval. Also in the file are archival photos of the car from the 1940's.
At some point believed to be in the late 1940's, the car was sold to a Walter Deitchman of Kansas City, Missouri. He kept the car until January of 1962 when he sold the car to Chris Linschoten of Salt Lake City, Utah. I purchased the car out of his garage from his estate.
The car has the steam engine installed with all of its original steam components. In a crate with the car is its original engine (eight cylinder) and various parts removed during the conversion to steam.
Buyer gets the following:
Complete car with steam engine still installed
Crate with original engine and parts
All original documentation with the car
Original barn find photos, vintage photos of the car (barn find photos are digital)
Likely, one of the most interesting and talked about cars at any ACD or steam car event..
I purchased it hoping to make it run. My shop is not a steam shop and does not have the knowledge base to properly and safely make it run so I am selling.
Inspections invited and welcomed by any seriously interested party. For those interested in the technology, Here is a web link that shows all of the documents with the car:
This car will be sold in a few weeks at Hershey. It's been in a US collection for a long time, but it certainly seems to have once been registered in the UK. However, I've been unable to discover anything about its history there. Does anyone recognize the license plate or the car?

I bought these as part of a lot with some Edwardian axles I wanted.
The chassis is 130” wheelbase and is in poor condition with much rust.
The rear axle is free and turns easily. No drums or hubs
The steering box is seized but looks to be easily recoverable with a new inner and outer column.
The wheels seem to be in good condition. Four 25” rims (for 34 by 4.5 tyres.), three wheels, two 12 spoke and one 10 spoke, without centres.
I am in Gloucestershire and could possibly help with delivery depending on where.
I have no idea about price, won’t be a lot but I need to recover some of my outlay.
I prefer to sell as one lot, I would welcome any specific questions or to send more pics.
Any help will be very much appreciated, please let me know if there are any costs.
