1925 Stanley Steam Car - Phaeton (Touring Car) Model

Serial Number 25007, Model SV-252A

AACA Historic Preservation of Original Features!

This is the finest, and probably the only un-restored, Stanley SV in existence. This car ran very well in September 2010.

This is the second earliest 1925 Stanley documented to have survived. Perhaps only 50 were made in 1925 by the Steam Vehicle Corporation of America of Newton, MA.

This car steamed very nicely and drove well in 2010.

  • Original leather upholstery.
  • Lockheed Hydraulic Brakes – rebuilt in 2010, filled with DOT 5 brake fluid.
  • Body shows very minor nicks and scratches, typical of an un-restored car.
  • Missing rear window, replacement frame in hand but not installed.
  • Model 750 water tank installed, however the original water tanks survives and comes with the car. Will be installed if buyer prefers.
  • The air pump is missing but was likely never installed by the factory. This appears to be the case with several other 1925 SVs.
  • Connection required from generator to Waltham speedometer. Speedometer is out of the car but present.
  • Fuel tank gauge appears original. There is no Foxboro gauge or sending unit.
  • The boiler has been re-tubed but it believed to be the original boiler.
  • The burner is a conventional drilled, two- venturi Stanley burner and may very likely be the original. The originally designed boiler and burner were 20” and much too small.

This car was owned at one time by Carl Amsly, who made the following modifications:

  • Cut slot in front floor board and installed a hand water pump. Brent Campbell saw this car at Carl’s before Carl cut the hole in the floor board and mounted the condensing car hand pump.
  • Replaced pressure gauges in dash. They are correct but not original.
  • Added kidney style boiler water level gauge. I do not think this is original.
  • Model A Ford rear tail light on left rear fender.
  • May have painted the car.
  • Replaced the original black condenser shell with nickel. The correct condenser and shell can be provided if the buyer desires.
