Restored 1908 Stanley Steam car hits the road

Posted by jerry on January 23rd, 2009 — Posted in Journal, Steam, Technology

This is a great video in which Simon Power discusses restoring and demonstrates driving a Stanley. With a one-to-one gear ratio it goes fast – maintains 70mph ‘for as long as the road can take it’. One hopes that shock absorbers on the suspension were part of the restoration!

I found this on the Steam Car Club of Great Britain forum
