Stanley Model 60 engine as spare or to restore
Number 6X 625 on frame dates it to 1911. Frame rods and block seem in good order, block flanges crack tested and seem OK. Missing pistons, piston rods, and connecting rods, all of which are parts which would normally be replaced in restoration.
Also lacks valve slides and valve chest cover. Includes new cranks made in EN 24T and a new high ratio 47 tooth crank gear and the exhaust manifold. I had intended to use this engine in a proposed steam special in a light vintage chassis, however a recent house move and other projects make the completion of this unlikely.
As seen £950. Buyer to collect Harrogate area. email mikeclark3@sky.com

1911 Stanley 20hp Model 72

A fantastic 20hp touring car, steams and drives very well. Well maintained, boiler and engine, pumps, brakes, running gear etc. New 10 year hydraulic test and current steam test. Full windscreen and weather gear. Serious enquiries to Michele Goddard 07792 136877


Parts...

I bought these as part of a lot with some Edwardian axles I wanted.

The chassis is 130” wheelbase and is in poor condition with much rust.
The rear axle is free and turns easily. No drums or hubs
The steering box is seized but looks to be easily recoverable with a new inner and outer column.
The wheels seem to be in good condition. Four 25” rims (for 34 by 4.5 tyres.), three wheels, two 12 spoke and one 10 spoke, without centres.
I am in Gloucestershire and could possibly help with delivery depending on where.
I have no idea about price, won’t be a lot but I need to recover some of my outlay.
I prefer to sell as one lot, I would welcome any specific questions or to send more pics.
Any help will be very much appreciated, please let me know if there are any costs.
Kind regards

Stanley Model 85
stanley Steamer

“If I could only have one Stanley, this would be the one” - Brent Campbell
With plenty of experience in 10-hp, 20-hp, and 30-hp cars, Brent Campbell was aware of the potential of the Stanley 30-hp power plant to create a comfortable, capable cruiser. He and Don Bourdon had mused about the attractiveness of the 1911 Model 70 body. They reviewed the advantages of a 30-hp Stanley power plant. (Don himself had then put over 30,000 miles on a 30-hp 12- passenger Mountain Wagon), and contracted Carl Amsley to build a Model 85 for himself and Don.

Don found a pair of jump seats from a Model 87 and sent them to St. Thomas. Amsley lengthened the body by 4 inches to comfortably accommodate the extra seats, so this is a true seven-passenger car, riding on a 131-inch wheelbase.

Norm Shanklin had also ridden many miles with Brent Campbell in "Big Green," and its capacity and performance inspired him to create his own 30-hp touring car. He commissioned Mark Herman to build a Model 85 body for him alongside the body he was building for Barry Herbert (this latter car is the one now for sale). Herman had just finished a meticulously researched run of five Model 70 bodies, so he had a thorough understanding of the visual characteristics to be emulated by the larger body. He also brought Don's Model 85 to his shop for study and measurement. As the construction of Barry's body became synchronized with that of Norm’s, it received the same strengthening sub frame upgrades. It rests on a 132 inch wheelbase.

Barry also added his own specialized improvements to the fundamental Stanley concepts. He installed a steam-powered water pump, allowing adjustment of boiler water level with out jacking a wheel. For pilot reliability, he used propane with continuous automatic spark lighting. He added front disc brakes to the rear hydraulic brakes, making the braking of this heavy car as good as any modern car. He assigned the number 6054 to the car, named it the "Wolds Waggoner," and in May of 2000, "Late Model 85 #7" made its debut. Performance was as strong as expected, and Barry enjoyed the car for some time touring the U,K., USA and Australia, before selling it to Bryan Richmond-Dodd, who sold it to Jeff Theobald, who campaigned it endlessly. It cruises comfortably at 50 MPH.

After Theobald's untimely passing, the car was repurchased by its original creator, Barry Herbert, who reports that the car has now covered about 25,000 miles. He has recently replaced the boiler with a new Don Bourdon wire-wound one, and installed a new burner and carried out a major renovation of the whole car including a full strip down, repaint. an additional rear Water Tank which incorporates a tool box. a GPS Speedometer, and replaced the wheels with new Calimer wooden wheels and new tyres.

Over the past 30 years, a new family of nine remarkable Stanleys has been created. The idea started with a couple of accomplished Stanley operators who wanted to expand their driving experience to cover long distances at comfortable road speeds with plenty of passengers. They enlisted talented designers, engineers, and fabricators; added their own considerable talents; and created an attractive and highly capable version of a Stanley. The repeated demonstration of these cars' practicality and performance then inspired others to create similar cars. Although there are variations in design and personal preference, all of these cars are highly regarded by their owners and in many instances continue to be their reliable touring car of choice.

And Now is your chance to own one, as the Seven Seat Stanley 85 Number 6054 is FOR SALE at £145,000, after just completing a full body off restoration.

1906 Stanley Model H
stanley Steamer

Unique opportunity to own a legendary Stanley Model H “Gentleman’s Speedy Roadster” as this is the only 1906 H in existence. The fastest production car in the world at the time, America’s first sports and “muscle” car. Just completed 21 year absolutely correct restoration of an original car that had been in the same family since 1915 when it was purchased to take on a honeymoon trip to Yosemite National Park from near San Francisco, documented in photos.

Fred Marriot called the Model H “the best Stanley for all around road use and hill climbing, better than the Model K”, Fred took a Model H to the British Isles in 1906 and as he said “cleaned up” in all the competition classes.

Less than 20 miles since restoration which included all new wood body and Bourdon boiler with everything else rebuilt, no expense spared. This is as close to the car as it was built as it can be, with no concession to modern driving, no hydraulic disc brakes, sight glasses cut into the body, electric pumps or lights, seat warmers, etc.

Participated in the Pebble Beach Concours D’elegance in 2017 and see the professional video produced by the Wall Street Journal newspaper on YouTube.

For sale for $150,000 which is $50,000 below the cost of restoration, as I am now retired and have no place to store the car or trailer safely.

1936 Hudson Terraplane Drophead
1900 Locomobile
A unique opportunity to acquire a very rare 1936 Hudson Terraplane Drophead car, with distinctive one off Carcraft body, one owner since 1958. 28,000 miles since body off restoration, photos available where everything was renewed in 1990- 92. Was used for six years for Weddings and extensively shown at Charity Shows all over Yorkshire. The engine had a full rebuild in 2012, and is in good working condition.

An electric pump was fitted under the engine bay to circulate oil through a filter and a cooler which safegards any overheating with modern fuel, separately switched and a gauge to check .
For those not familiar with the model, there is a considerable list of safety measures and novel features which all go to make this car such a wonderful safe machine to enjoy. Starting at the top the carburettor is a duel Carter with automatic choke and fuel economy needles. It has a six cylinder side valve engine (21 hp) and fluid clutch. The front axle springs are double shacked with two radius arms fastened back to the chassis , holding axle in place which means the car can be driven with a broken front spring or two .
Would be difficult to roll this car as the roll bar is well up to the job . The brakes are Bendix Fully Progressive type where the leading shoe with soft lining touches the drum first , pushing the main shoe under pressure giving superb braking power without other mechanical help . One of the first cars to be fitted with hydraulic operation giving perfect balance whatever the angle of car when braking .( on cable and rod operation quite dangerous) A simple elongated clevis pin slide is set up to apply the hand brake if brake fluid is lost and foot goes down to floor.

This is the ultimate Wedding Car, even if the Weather is dull or shine the photos will be fine, with hood down everyone gets a good view, hood up it is completely weatherproof with good heater. For extra interest at Weddings and Shows there are Vacuum Air horns, two musical horns one of which plays 'Here comes the Bride' Klaxon and Wolf Whistle.

All these extras can be removed easily back to basic if required.

Regarding the photos taken this year, it is only fair to say that it doesn't show that the bodywork is in need of some TLC, nothing too drastic and can easily be dealt with. But at 86 years old my brain is still keen but my body keeps refusing to take orders!

Any interested parties can contact me on :- brian@ripon.org and offers left open until the end of September as there is interest from the US.
