World's Oldest Running Car to be Sold

Recommended Posts

There was a sister car to that running at the first Hershey meet I went to in 1969. I'll bet the 1865 Roper in the Ford Collection could be made road worthy if someone there wanted to take the time.

I wonder where is the 1866 Dudgeon Steam Wagon? It was operational here in Massachusetts sometime back in the nineteen-sixties, I think.

Last I knew it was in the Museum of Transportation in Brookline, Mass. it was once part of the George Waterman collection.

Don't forget Nicolas Cugnot's "Fardier à vapeur", a self-propelled steam car built in 1769. The original car is in the National Academy of Arts and Métiers in Paris. Go here to read about it and see a crazy video of the thing: http://www.3wheelers.com/cugnot.html.
