Locomobile Steam Cars were the largest selling automobile in 1901 selling some 3,000 units. Most of them are the 2 seater variety but there were 4 seaters produced as well, these are extremely rare. The surrey is style number 5 and one of the most handsome of the type.
Designed by FE & FO Stanley, the Locomobile company produced steam vehicles until 1902, when they switched to internal combustion.
I've spent 12 years restoring this car from components I purchased from an elderly gentleman in Kansas who had realised he wouldn't get around to it.
September 1901 this car was produced as dated by the Western Australian veteran Car Club and has a Don Bourdon 17 1/2 inch boiler, it uses 98 octane fuel through the burner which heats the water to 200psi, from here it is led through the throttle and super-heater to the twin reciprocating pistons. the power (8 power strokes per 2 crank revolutions) is transmitted via a 5/8 link chain to the dual drum differential and then to the rear wheels.
All steam, water, air and fuel equipment is new and in excellent order.
the steam automatic (shuts fuel at 210psi) is new from Stanley Steam Supplies, as is the throttle.
Heaps of photos, video, information, history and material available.

The Stanley occupies a mythical place in early automotive history and is arguably the most famous of the era’s steam-powered cars. For 1910, the nimble and quick 10 hp Stanleys were a bargain at $850. For over 70 years and three generations, this astonishingly original Stanley Runabout was a family favorite in the esteemed Fred Buess collection. It was purchased in Glendale, California in 1937 from a fellow who, despite the car’s fine condition, was fearful of the Stanley’s boiler pressure. A lifelong aficionado of steam technology, Mr. Buess was among the 17 founding members of the Horseless Carriage Club of America, and this Stanley was the car with which he attended most of the club meets between 1937 and 1946. In 1947, the Runabout took its place, among six other Stanleys, on static display in the collection. The current owner acquired this steamer from the Buess family in 2010, and Fred A. Buess Jr. assisted in returning the steamer to working order. Although the seat leather and top fabric have deteriorated some over the years, overall the car is presentable to enjoy and display. It is extremely rare that an unrestored Stanley that has been so lovingly preserved comes to market, and it would be a particular prize for any steam devotee.

1911 Stanley Model 62 for SALE at PreWarCar.com:
Completed in 1995, this unique steam car was inspired by the North American manufacturers from the turn of 20th century.
A very fun car to own, with the vis-a-vis seating enabling the children come along and enjoy the experience. The 15hp twin high pressure engine gives plenty of power and a good turn of speed, she will steam around all day at 15-20mph loaded with 2 adults and 2 children. The owner has done a "speed run" with it and achieved 42mph, however did say it wasn't an experience they would be in hurry to do again!
Driving is very enjoyable and surprisingly simple. Turn on the burners and within 30mins the boiler is up to pressure, jump on and away you go. The boiler is automatically fired and the water pump set up well and requires minimal adjustment when on the move. The car has a dog clutch fitted to engage drive to the rear axle allowing you to run the engine when stationary. It is also fitted with modern disc brakes. On the road it averages 8-10mpg of fuel and 1mpg of water.
The engine itself is a lovely bit of engineering, all crank pins and bearings are on roller bearings as such the only lubrication required is the steam lubricator. The boiler is a superheated unit with 400psi working pressure and automatically fired by a 24volt kerosene burner. Water feed is through a crank driven pump and manual hand pump.
Mechanically the car is very well sorted however she would benefit from a repaint in the near future.
A Brian James race transporter 4 trailer for transport is also available subject to separate negotiation.

1922 Stanley for sale
It was restored about thirty years ago and has now been idle for about five years. Major stroke forces sale. I'd like to get the car out of the garage before the next fire season forces evacuation, again.
This car has been set up for touring, as per its namesake: It was driven from Santa Rosa, CA to Estes Park, CO for the inauguration of the Stanley Museum in the Stanley Hotel; it was driven from, again, Santa Rosa, CA to Santa Barbara, CA along highway 1; in 2002 it was also shipped to Melbourne, Australia where we met up with it and toured with the Aussies in their first steam car tour. Sue Davis, founder and retired director of the Stanley Museum in Kingfield, ME, said it was the only condensing car able to keep up with non-condensers - that she knew of. The car has a 30hp Bourdon boiler (now almost thirty years old) and a 30hp Crubin burner. It has in it a Nergaard piston valve block with Cunningham chrome moly connecting rods (pictured in photo, hanging on peg board); a stock block with polished ports comes with it, as well as most of a spare rear axle assembly and spare, miscellaneous items and tools, alloy condenser and trailer.
