TOOL BOX WAS REPAINTED 50 YEARS AGO. IT HAS JUST SET AROUND THE HOUSE. NO RUST
OR SIZE-ABLE DENTS, LATCH WORKS WELL, BUT NO KEY. ASKING $500 ///
A rare opportunity to own a very unique piece of model engineering. This is a fully operational, 1:2 scale replica of the famous Stanley Steam car 4 seater. It was built in the Netherlands and comes with extensive images of the build and boiler drawings (present but in Dutch). Due to being from the Netherlands, the boiler has no tests or other paper work, so in the first instance we would seek to sell the car 'as seen', however we could discuss the options with you for testing.
The car itself is gas fired and is designed to allow the driver to sit on the perch on top of the front seats. The wheels are wooden and the body has been finished to a high standard to produce a very pretty, authentic little steam car. There are a few small points of damage to the paint but only wear and tear and nothing which takes away from its character.
It comes with a pair of nice size brass, electric headlamps for the front and a removable windscreen; this is all presented in a custom box which comes with the car. The water tank is under the driver seat with the gas under the rear seat and the boiler under the bonnet. The engine itself is a double action piston located under the rear of the car all mounted on a fully sprung chassis. Fitted is also a very entertaining hooter horn.
It is highly recommended that you arrange to view this car so you can get a feel for the scale of it and whether it would be suitable for you to drive.
For more information or to book a test steam, please speak to Sean at Berrybrook Steam on 01392 833301.
I am making some White 20hp blocks for 1907 and 1908 cars but they will fit the 1905 and 1906 Whites if a piston valve is used on the HP valve. I will have made a batch of castings when I have proved the first two. Please contact anyone that you know who might want any of these.
