1929 Auburn Model 125F Cabriolet. $63000.00 It is a totally original car that has sat in a garage since 1962. It has its original engine and transmission. It is likely the most unique Auburn in the world as it was converted to steam in Circa 1934 by its original owner who invented some technology related to steam power and wished to put it to use prior to applying for a US patent.
The car was purchased new in 1929 by Osmond Campbell of Saint Joseph, Missouri. He drove the car for a few years and during that time, the Great Depression hit. The result for him was that the Auburn was now nearly worthless to trade in on his new car so when he purchased his new car, he kept the Auburn to try out a new invention related to steam power and operation. As a result, in 1934, he converted the car to steam power.
Campbell kept the car until at least the mid-1940's. There are pages and pages of documentation during his ownership including schematics, descriptions, drawings, letters with various suppliers and letters between him and the Department of Commerce seeking and being granted a patent approval. Also in the file are archival photos of the car from the 1940's.
At some point believed to be in the late 1940's, the car was sold to a Walter Deitchman of Kansas City, Missouri. He kept the car until January of 1962 when he sold the car to Chris Linschoten of Salt Lake City, Utah. I purchased the car out of his garage from his estate.
The car has the steam engine installed with all of its original steam components. In a crate with the car is its original engine (eight cylinder) and various parts removed during the conversion to steam.
Buyer gets the following:
Complete car with steam engine still installed
Crate with original engine and parts
All original documentation with the car
Original barn find photos, vintage photos of the car (barn find photos are digital)
Likely, one of the most interesting and talked about cars at any ACD or steam car event..
I purchased it hoping to make it run. My shop is not a steam shop and does not have the knowledge base to properly and safely make it run so I am selling.
Inspections invited and welcomed by any seriously interested party. For those interested in the technology, Here is a web link that shows all of the documents with the car:
This car will be sold in a few weeks at Hershey. It's been in a US collection for a long time, but it certainly seems to have once been registered in the UK. However, I've been unable to discover anything about its history there. Does anyone recognize the license plate or the car?

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.
Please contact me,Steve for more information.

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!
