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.

Wanted- Stanley 30HP boiler & burner copies of technical blueprints for building these, prefer Baker brand, but any make 27" prints will do, Please contact me. Thanks!
I collect Salem MA history. I have quite a bit of
material about the Locke Regulator Co.What I'm in need of is anything relating to the Puritan
steam car or their years as a supplier of parts to various steam car builders. I can provide scans of my material about the Locke family and the Locke Regulator Co.

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.

10% into a true restoration, this sweet car was not finished by it's owner due to having so much fun with a running steam car. As a 7 yr old kid, watching my father bring this car home to be put back into how it was originally built, I looked forward to seeing the car completed because the car could carry our whole family not just two individuals.
The frame is done and complete; all tanks completed and mounted under frame; front springs completed and mounted; front axle done with completed wheels and new tires mounted to axle and to frame. The rear axle, wheels and new tires are complete and all mounted, but, Not mounted to frame. The next step in restoration would be the three pumps, so the rear axle can be mounted. This next step completed makes it so much easier to move the car around. Currently the car has the body and many parts just sitting on top of the frame for lack of space. All the parts for the car are present, though parts to be made new of course would be the boiler and all the plumbing; the wood inside the body; the upholstery; and the convertible top. All four fenders have been restored and painted. The car has been in the shop for the last 50 years but no work has been done for 18 years.

Contact Roel Rasker
This is my circa 1900/1901 Locomobile steam car project.Purchased many years ago as a collection of parts ,it consists of some original and some remanufactured components.
It has an original Locomobile engine,rebuilt,tested on compressed air.
Original manual water pump.
Some chassis components.
All the other parts have been made by me using the original Locomobile drawings.
Probably 95% completed it requires steam fittings,plumbing,the steam automatic( can be purchased or I have a set of castings),
and the burner needs a few bits to finish.
The fuel,air and water tanks are all tested and fitted and the muffler is installed.
The boiler has all its certificates ,is CE marked and has been hydraulically tested.(not steamed).It has new wheels and tyres,upholsted seats,new oak body framing and woodwork with a spindle seat back.
Many parts and materials are included and also a set of disc brakes for a future modification if found to be necessary.
New drive sprockets and differential gears are fitted.
This is a very detailed restoration/recreation built regardless of cost and I have run out of steam to finish it.
I will include a set of King Of The Road brass road lamps and
all the drawings and information collected over the years .
I also have all the parts of a purpose made road trailer,
This vehicle deserves to be finished,I just have too many other vintage car projects and not enough time.A regretful sale.

Delightful 1900 Locomobile steam car in wonderful original condition
Bought with a view to entering the VCC Brighton Run, time has conspired against me. There is a dating certificate from the London Science Museum and I have made initial enquiries re a formal VCC dating certificate but this will be something for the new owner to take forward
Valid Lloyds boiler certificate and ready to go - totally 'on the match'!
More smiles per gallon than anything else I've ever owned!
Worth considerably more with the VCC dating process all completed and a Brighton run under her belt
Sale of a half share considered to the right person as I would love to see the vision through
Reason for sale - as a lifelong classic car enthusiast my modest collection has grown out of control a little, at 15 cars and 21 bikes I spend all my time chasing MoT dates and keeping batteries charged, and not enough actually enjoying quality time with them. I've therefore decided to reduce the numbers to 6 cars and 6 bikes, which will be much more manageable. As I love them all it's a bit like choosing between your children - impossible - so I'm listing everything and whatever 6 of each are left I'll keep - it's as simple as that. All my vehicles are accurately described and I hope will go to a good home - this is more important to me than extracting the last few quid from a sale, and I've no interest in selling anyone anything that isn't right for them - come and have a look and if you like what you see then great. Everything is ONO - we all love a deal! Please please please no timewasters though, if you need to ask your Mum or borrow the money from your cousin, please do so first!

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 sale is our beloved 1919 Stanley 735B 7-passenger steam touring car. We purchased it last september after it had been in storage for a few years. We have done a lot of work to this car including: a new vaporiser coil, added a whistle, new water gauage seals, and had the gas tank fully cleaned inside. It is a very interesting and rare car with a neat backstory. It has accessories such as 1919 licence plates, a bristol derr electric water gauage, a 30hp Don Bourdon boiler, blazick jets, and a packard pilot. It steams very quickly, the siphon works, it seldom gets a tube fire and the engine is smooth. Only items needed to be corrected until it can be toured: thewaer pumps need to be machined as they are worn out inside and the piston packing needs to be redone. These small fixes wil lenable it to be a reliable, rare, and facinating steam car. We have to many projects right now are would like to find this car a fellow steam enthusiast to be its new owner.
