6.5HP, 2-Cylinder Steam Engine Chassis No. 307 In the early part of the 20th Century, steam powered cars were quite popular and in 1906, Fred W. Marriott, Stanley's chief mechanic, piloted a steamer to the land speed record. Established in 1901, Stanley Steamers became the industry leader for this mode of transportation and every year saw more improvements. This vintage example was set up to handle four passengers, riding on the 28" x 3.00" tires. Front seat passengers had an unobstructed view of the road ahead and either person could steer the car through a centrally mounted tiller. With a leather front piece and fenders fashioned from wood, this little runabout could probably attain speeds in excess of 40 mph, but be wary of those ancient brakes. Wearing a smart wicker basket ready for a picnic and the vintage kerosene powered Neverout brass lamps, the perfect car for a spin. It should be noted that this car has been idle for many years and before steam operations, it should be completely checked out by an expert with these cars. Alternative fuel from nearly 110 years ago, this Stanley Steamer is a rare opportunity for the discerning collector.
