I'm a young Australian, tool maker / machinist living down south in Tasmania, I've built many live steam locos and a 1/3rd scale Burrell traction engine, on the bench at the minute is a batch run of small quarry locos.
Any way I've taken a shine to full size stuff and struggling to find any traction engines to restore, I'm keen on doing a true full scale replica of the Stanley Vanderblit cup car, making every thing then getting it road registrable.
How ever I'm struggling to find ant information on these cars at all this site has been a wonderful help but I'm in need of information on every thing id like to compile / draw a full set of working drawings so others could also build this true replicas of this car.
is this stuff you have? would it be possible to obtain a copy? I'm more than happy to pay for it i understand that gathering this stuff takes years, either photocopies or electronic.
details on the 30 horse engine and boiler as well as key dimensions of the car, I've got very little info on any of the automatics - mind this site has given me heaps.
i would be more than happy to contribute every thing i do cad drawing and photos to this site.
looking forward to your reply
yours in steam
