Grout information wanted
Do you know of any Grouts recently arriving in Europe? The Packard brothers a 100 years ago use to collect steam. The family had Stanleys and 2 Grouts. The son of one of the brothers is in his 90s now and the family sold the bigger, better Grout some years ago. I have the chassis to the smaller 1903 Model J they sold me. I believe my car was a parts donor to the bigger Grout even though they were different models. I think both Grouts share parts to each others car and I hope to talk with the new owner. Would you know the new owner of the other Grout? Thank you.

1922 Stanley 740 sedan for sale
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.
