1903 Stanley Type B
Very original 1903 Brighton Run Car. This car has done many Brighton runs and there is a clip on YouTube of 2009 run.
This car won the 120 years of Stanley Cartier award at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2017 and the new owner will get the winning Silver Plate with the car.
The VCC Certificate of Date No 1980 says it is a Type A but it is registered as a Type B. The VCC also so say this is the most original Type A they have seen. It appears never to have been restored and has always been in running order. I am sure the bodywork has had work done but the engine and pumps seem original. The boiler was replaced in 2015 and the hydraulic certificate runs until 2025. The next Steam certificate is due in January 2020. In my ownership.
I have had hydraulic disc brakes fitted which apply to the engine not on the wheels. These are hidden under the car in a box. The car is much safer now on modern roads. She steams up and runs very well and is almost silent.
I am including a special hydraulic jack I have had made so the car can be run statically. I also have a tailor made waterproof cover. I have a number of articles of great interest about the car. If you are looking for a genuine original Stanley in very good working order, to take to shows or do the Brighton run look no further.
I have been advised that £75000.00 is about the right price but as these are so rare it is very difficult to know if this is right, if you would like to make an offer please let me know.
The car is near Chichester, West Sussex.
