We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to advertise this fantastic 10hp Stanley steam car for sale. It is an exceptional and truly sorted example, with an excellent background documented in a large folder of accompanying paperwork. It is an example of a 10hp four-seat open top Runabout, built originally in 1910.
It is in good running condition with excellent paintwork and looks stunning. It has recently, in 2016, had a new boiler, made by J Goold; a reputable name in steam car boiler making. As such, amongst the intensive paperwork accompanying this car, we have a boiler certificate dated to expire towards the end of 2020. In an attempt to interpret the receipts and small snippets of writeups within the paperwork, I have managed to put together something of a timeline of this car's more recent life. This car left the Stanley workshop in 1910 as one of 352 other Type 60 Stanley’s to leave the shop that year. It is number 5491 and engine number 6--440. It spent its life in the USA, being converted into a boy racer looking machine in 1922 (the photos are something to behold!) Eventually, it came into the ownership of a Geary Baese of Fort Collins, Colorado in need of a complete restoration. We have some photos of how Mr. Baese first saw this car and his highly skilled input to the project is documented. In 2006 the car was sold as a partially complete project and it was at this point that it was bought by a gentleman in the UK who imported it and completed it to a high standard. It has since changed hands a couple of times, needing a new boiler in 2016 which was fitted and it is now presented for sale as a well sorted example of a sought after but hard to come by, well traceable and documented Type 60 Stanley.
It has been converted to a gas pilot with two gas canisters. Once ignited, it runs on a kerosene. It is road registered and includes the V5C on the registration number BF 4908 - being under the historic vehicle tax band, it is, of course, tax and MOT exempt.
A fantastic opportunity to buy a unique machine which epitomises the look of the steam car. Restored and maintained to a high standard, this would want for no more than generally maintenance work wise and would be ready to go for the 2020 season.
Asking Price - £49,995
