I have not got my car running yet so can only give hearsay.
When I was looking for a 4-seater touring Stanley I was advised to get one of the later cars (1910 onwards I believe - others will know exactly) with a 'wet' engine.
I managed to get a 1914 car, the engines of these have a stronger crankshaft and connecting rods than the earlier onees.
Earlier car engines can be upgraded with moden components however.
From my point of view, the ready availablity of parts for the 1910 and onwards cars was also a key factor.
