Half Scale Stanley Steam Car
Boiler test- New hydraulic and steam tests
Length - 1850mm
Height- 980mm (Excluding removable windscreen)
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). This car is currently undergoing boiler test and is being sold to include a new hydraulic, cold and steam test by a very reputable boiler inspector, as such it is being sold ready to go.
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.
We had this example for sale a couple of years ago. The owner has enjoyed ownership and is asking us to sell it to make way for a new venture. Therefore, the photos in this ad are from when the car was last on our premises; since then it has been well looked after and has had no notable changes aside from being commissioned for use.
For more information, please speak to Matt or Sean on 01392 833301. As with all of our vehicles, we highly recommend viewing them in person. Whilst this example is not currently on our premises, it can be arranged with prior notice to be on site of we can liaise with the seller to show it to you where it currently lives in Cornwall.
