1922 740 Stanley 7 Passenger Sedan - Chassis 22277
Chassis is pretty much complete and in great condition. Leather gatering is mostly on all springs. New (need some cleaning) universal tires. Wheels are solid but need paint. A couple valves and small items not present on firewall, but are available items. Believed to be low miles, engine sounds great (see YouTube video).
Chassis 22277 donated its body to another touring car (740B on the tag) and was destined to become a "Steel Frame Mountain Wagon" by a previous owner, but never came to be. It was then bought by myself and mated to this correct Stanley 7 Passenger Sedan Body. All sheet metal is there and solid. The body will need wood work and interior. Rear seat is not present. I have jump seats that can be used.
Old boiler had a tube removed. It it welcome to come along with the sale or leave it (should have a new boiler). 30HP boiler potentially available with the car for an addition. Condenser included not shown in place.
The chassis will be an easy restore, the body will need work but it's very straight and all the metal is there. Just a few small cracks, but basically all complete. Would make a great, big, majestic Steamer when restored. Please feel free to contact me to discuss.

Twin brothers Francis and Freelan Stanley built their first steam-powered car in 1897 in Watertown, Massachusetts and sold more than 200 by 1899, making them the most successful U.S. automaker at the time. They sold the design to Locomobile in 1899 and, three years later, founded the Stanley Motor Carriage Co. The Stanley steamer is the most recognizable steam car to this day and are the most reliable and well designed steam cars ever built. Although steam power for the automobile fell out of favor, it was still a very efficient and very powerful way to propel the automobile. In 1906, the Stanley Rocket achieved 127 MPH driven by Fred Marriott and one year later at Ormand Beach, Florida it achieved 150 MPH.
This particular Stanley offered here is one of the most original untouched Stanley Steamers to exist today with known history since new. This is a 1914 Model 606 roadster that has been off the road since 1949 (still wearing its 1949 Connecticut license plates). The model 606 is the last of the "coffin nose" Stanley's before the transition to a more modern nose offered later. It is a 10 horsepower model, but a late 10 horse which has a much larger boiler giving it a lot more power then the earlier 10 horse cars.
Sold new in 1914 to the Fodor family of Norwalk, Connecticut through the Stanley Steamer dealer located in Norwalk, Connecticut. The car was driven leisurely until 1949 when it was stored away in the Fodor family carriage house where it would remain until 1993 when Manny Dragone discovered the car still in the carriage house and still in Norwalk, CT where it had been for its entire existence. It was then sold to a well known Connecticut collector where it has remained in the same condition since then. It is an absolutely amazing original Stanley that has never left Connecticut. There are more Stanley's that exist today than there were 30 years ago, so to find one as original as this is almost unheard of. Although it has not been run since 1949 the car is very untouched and looks to be in very good mechanical condition and really wouldn't take much to get it back in running order. Original Stanley's just did not survive and this is a chance to own a pure original 606 roadster with known provenance since new and publicly offered for sale for the first time since 1914.

Locomobile Steam Car engine once owned by my Grandfather. It was subsequently given to my father more than 40 years ago. I stored it in his shop. When he passed the engine was given to me. However, I have no use for it and would like to see it end up in a restored Locomobile or such.

10% into a true restoration, this sweet car was not finished by it's owner due to having so much fun with a running steam car. As a 7 yr old kid, watching my father bring this car home to be put back into how it was originally built, I looked forward to seeing the car completed because the car could carry our whole family not just two individuals.
The frame is done and complete; all tanks completed and mounted under frame; front springs completed and mounted; front axle done with completed wheels and new tires mounted to axle and to frame. The rear axle, wheels and new tires are complete and all mounted, but, Not mounted to frame. The next step in restoration would be the three pumps, so the rear axle can be mounted. This next step completed makes it so much easier to move the car around. Currently the car has the body and many parts just sitting on top of the frame for lack of space. All the parts for the car are present, though parts to be made new of course would be the boiler and all the plumbing; the wood inside the body; the upholstery; and the convertible top. All four fenders have been restored and painted. The car has been in the shop for the last 50 years but no work has been done for 18 years.

· 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.
