To be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sotheby's Hershey event, October 5-6, 2017.Estimate:$50,000 - $60,000 USOne of little more than 1,700 Model 735s producedVeteran of an around the world driving tourBoiler upgraded to gasoline operationThough Stanley Steamer has become a part of American automotive language, Stanley Steam Car is the preferred nomenclature of any Stanley owner. The Stanley brothers, identical twins who went by their initials, F.E. and F.O., set about building what was without a doubt the most famous automobile that used steam power to propel itself down the road. The Stanley was built in Massachusetts from 1899 to 1927, although the brothers retired from the company in 1917 while in their sixties. The Stanley was a beautifully engineered car that operated in virtual silence compared to gasoline-engine cars. It was the invention of the electric self-starter on gasoline automobiles more than any single item that spelled doom for the steam car. The Stanley Model 735wasintroduced in 1918. It brought to market a condensing boiler that offered greater range prior to having to stop for a refill--an obvious disadvantage to earlier models. Coils located in a traditional-style front-mounted radiator were part of a closed loop system whereby steam was returned to the boiler instead of being released into the atmosphere. The Model 735 became the most successful of all Stanley models with more than 1,700 sold over the model run. This 1922 Stanley Model 735B touring is both a rare and interesting car . . . with a legend to match! Eric Massiet du Biest, a Frenchman, was determined to circumvent the earth while driving a steam car. As such, he selected this steamer, which was mechanically restored in 1992. He christened it "Passepartout" as an homage to the valet who accompanied Phineas Fogg in Jules Verne's epic novel Around the World in 80 Days. He successfully completed his adventure, which is chronicled in the January-March 1993 issue of Bulb Horn. In 2009 the carwassold to a French engineer who completed a cosmetic and mechanical restoration, including improving upon the original boiler system to operate on gasoline, thus rendering the car more drivable and reliable. Despite having abundant nicks and chips, the patina of this worn but proven Stanley is both appealing and charming. While no show queen, it will no less be the star wherever it appears while providing fun for both the driver and six of his or her friends.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sotheby's Hershey event, October 5-6, 2017.Estimate:$75,000 - $90,000 USOffered from the W. Jay Milligan CollectionA painstaking "big horsepower" recreation by Stanley guru Carl AmsleyUsed reliably in many steam car activities over two decadesRecently recommissioned by Alan KelsoIdeal for the Brass Era touring enthusiastWhoever called this car a Stanley Steamer was not a friend of the Stanley brothers, as they strongly disliked that designation. It was a Stanley Steam Car, even though Stanley Steamer has now become a part of the American language. The brothers were identical twins who went by their initials, F.E. and F.O. They set about building what was, without a doubt, the most famous automobile to use steam power to propel itself down the road.The Model 70 shown here, one of about 10 known survivors to this specification, was constructed of original and reproduction components in 1985 by the late, great steam enthusiast and Stanley expert,CarlAmsley. It is worth noting that in Stanley circles a recreation is not frowned upon, as these cars ordinarily incorporate numerous improvements and enhancements not seen in factory-stock designs.This particular car, a 20 steam hp model with a 24 × 14-in. boiler, has superb, reliable performance, equivalent to an eight-cylinder gasoline-powered automobile. This was proven by its longtime owner, the late stunt driver and showman Jay Milligan, who purchased the Stanley from Amsley in 1987. It became a frequent participant in steam tours, including recording the fastest time in the Dead Horse Hill Climb of 1997, then ran in tours in Delaware, Vermont, and Connecticut in 2007, 2008, and 2014, respectively. Yet during all this time it was well-kept enough to achieve its AACA Grand National First Prize honors in 2004. Unused in the last couple of years due to Mr. Milligan's health, it has been freshly reconditioned for the sale by Stanley expert Alan Kelso, and will be offered in running condition.Anexceptional Stanley for the driving enthusiast, this car boasts power like few other automobiles of its era, and provides a one-of-a-kind driving experience.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sotheby's Hershey event, October 5-6, 2017.Estimate:$45,000 - $65,000 USVery original early StanleyRecent sympathetic restorationLondon-to-Brighton eligibleF.E. and F.O. Stanley built their first steam car in 1897, but before they could ramp up manufacturing, they sold their company to John Walker and Amzi Barber, signing a one-year non-compete agreement. At year's end, however, they were intent on getting back into the business and came up with a steam car featuring a new engine, fuel system, and boiler, resulting in higher pressures than ever used before. For 1903, the body was redesigned, and in 1904 model names were imposed for the first time. This car, the Model C runabout with folding front seat, sold for $695.The current owner, a professional restorer, pursued this very original Stanley for many years. Only in 2012 was he able to buy it. The car came with a new boiler from Bourdon Boiler Works in Vermont, but uninstalled. In all otherrespectsthe car was very much as it had come from the factory, with original wood body and even the leather seating. Intent on participation in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run in England, he commenced a careful, sympathetic restoration. This involved installing the new boiler, valves, piping, and steam packing. New tires were fitted at this time. The driver's seat was covered over the original leather, and the front seat was restored carefully with neatsfoot oil. The car was repainted in the original maroon and black pattern. Items added during the restoration included a gas headlight in front (not currently connected), a steam line to clear the burner line, a fuel gauge and boiler sight glass, and a steam whistle. Because of health issues, the Stanley was drained and stored in 2013, and the Brighton Run has remained an unfulfilled ambition. A new owner will be able to rejoin the chase, easily recommissioning the car for the road and securing the necessary dating certificate for entry.
