I am an associate editor with Cars & Parts magazine as well as a freelance writer. As I often need illustrations for articles the office is filled with all manner of historic photos and related material.
I recently acquired some fascinating photos. They are of a late 1930s Packard with what appears to be a steam engine. As the car looks almost new the conversion is even more interesting.
I have posted two of the photos on my blog and will post the third this evening. I have also noted this find on several other forums and to date have two rough leads that point in the same direction.
The car was built in Massachusetts using a Stanley engine. As of about ten years ago the car still existed in the Boston area.

If you have ideas or thought on this car please let me know. Thank you.
