SOLD.


FOR SALE: 1901 Locosurrey

The Car was purchased by me in 2006 from Mr Richard Mann of Ohio USA, largely unrestored but complete engine, chassis, springs, steering, axels and wheels.
It also came with a semi finished replica water tank and body (measurements taken from the rotted one Richard had with it. (sadly he burnt the original and hadn’t any photographs- I guess they did that in the 1970’s) I purchased a boiler from Bourdon boiler works in the US (17½ inch wire wound) and built the seats, upholstery, operating mechanisms, steam, water and fuel controls and pipework. I also built the burner, a Stan Otway design incorporating a superheater. I’ve also fitted a Maddison Kip positive displacement oiler. The car is road registered (concessional) here in WA and fires well. I run it on 98 octane petrol at 50 psi and the boiler at 200psi. The safety is set at 220psi.

The car is as original as I can make it, although I have fitted a reversing camera arrangement (removable) to keep an eye on the gauge glass (as its under the rear seat whilst the driver is at the front seat- a design flaw I’d suggest.)

The photos show the general arrangement and I am happy to provide further details as requested.

I am asking $80,000.00 AUD and will assist with transport and shipping.

FOR SALE: 1903 Type B Stanley For Sale

Very original 1903 Brighton Run Car. This car has done many Brighton runs and there is a clip on YouTube of 2009 run. This car won the 120 years of Stanley Cartier award at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2017 and the new owner will get the winning Silver Plate with the car. The VCC Certificate of Date No 1980 says it is a Type A but it is registered as a Type B. The VCC also so say this is the most original Type A they have seen. It appears never to have been restored and has always been in running order. I am sure the bodywork has had work done but the engine and pumps seem original. The boiler was replaced in 2015 and the hydraulic certificate runs until 2025.

The next Steam certificate is due in January 2020. In my ownership I have had hydraulic disc brakes fitted which apply to the engine not on the wheels. These are hidden under the car in a box. The car is much safer now on modern roads. She steams up and runs very well and is almost silent. I am including a special hydraulic jack I have had made so the car can be run statically. I also have a tailor made waterproof cover. I have a number of articles of great interest about the car. If you are looking for a genuine original Stanley in very good working order, to take to shows or do the Brighton run look no further. I am now offering this for a firm price of £55K.

The car is near Chichester, West Sussex. Contact Robin Hamilton 07834 039585 robin.hamilton@btconnect.com.

1911 Stanley Model 70 FOR SALE

Robert Nydam’s 1911 Stanley Model 70 for sale. It is an original, engine #6164, a duplicate of Howard (Dewey) Johnson’s steamer, the only other original 1911 model 70 known to exist.

It has a history dating back to opera star of the 40’s and 50’s, James Melton collection. We also have the original cracked headlight from Melton’s era, which was depicted in a Lil’Abner cartoon. It was sold with his collection at the IRS auction upon Melton’s death to Winthrope Rockefeller and placed on display in his museum in Petit-Jean Mountain, Arkansas. The Stanley was made available and was purchased by dad and his friend, Marvin Young, dad having taken full possession in 1972. He did a full restoration, added hydraulic brakes in the 1990’s, and, as he was a touring enthusiast, used sealed and modern bearings where ever possible. The car is presently located in Chicago, Illinois.

Our family spent decades and hundreds of thousand of miles in what dad called “the greatest motoring pleasure of my life.” The Stanley was the measure of my growth, as we toured in summers and missed but 1 Eastern Steam Car Tour in our decades of steaming. It is with great sorrow we lost dad this February, oddly a day after Tom Marshall. Think Tom asked dad for some assistance firing up a Stanley in heaven!

We know auctions are perhaps the greatest draw, but would prefer to find an enthusiast to run dads car and enjoy the unique driving thrill as he so did. It would be a shame for it to end up in a museum, as is such a great running Stanley. As we lose great Steam enthusiasts of eras past, there seems to always be a new generation to carry on. Attached are a few photos of dads car, we have much paperwork, extra parts, an Ole’ Vikre original prodigious prodder (dad was so proud to have, and Ole and “uncle” to us as kids,)- it seemed proper it stay with the car!

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.

(For full details of the History of the 9 Model 85's - See “The Steam Car” Issue 55 Page 8, Also see Issue No. 3 - Page 27, No, 4 - Page 18, No.. 5 - Page 30, No, 7 - Page 34, and No. 8 – Page16. All relating to the building and operating of this car.)

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.
