During the early 1900s, the Stanley Motor Carriage Company's bread-and-butter line was comprised mostly of 10 horsepower cars, including the Model E variations which was in production from 1905 through 1909, and the 60 Series which were built from 1910 to 1914.

This Stanley Model 63 Toy Tonneau is powered by a 10 horsepower, double-acting, two-cylinder steam engine. There are two-wheel mechanical drum brakes and a wheelbase that measures 104 inches. The car was acquired by Mr. Herrala from the estate of Carl S. Amsley in 1998. Mr. Amsley, of St. Thomas, PA was renowned in the steam hobby as a restorer and fabricator of automobiles. He is remembered as putting more Stanleys on the road than any other person.

It is believed that this Toy Tonneau was re-bodied before Amsley purchased it. All models, until 1915, were built in the manner of carriages, with the body and chassis a single unit made of wood. Later models were often bodied in aluminum. The suspension, axles, and engine were mounted to this wood assembly. This put considerable strain on the wood, often requiring a high quality restoration that most often involved a new body.

When Mr. Herrala purchased the vehicle, it was completed and running. Mr Herrala set about making it both reliable for touring and competitive on the show field. It was treated to a complete restoration, which included a new boiler from Bourdon Boiler Works in Vermont. Upon completion, the car made its debut in January of 2006 at the Stanley Speed Record Centennial celebration at Ormond Beach, Florida.

Many AACA awards followed, including First Junior at Binghamton, New York, in 2007. It achieved a First Senior award at Hershey in 2008. In 2010, it received a Grand National First at New Bern, North Carolina.

The car is finished in correct Brewster Green with gold pinstriping and yellow running gear. It is upholstered in buttoned black leather and has a full top in black canvas. There are brass lamps, horn and windshield, along with a multi-tone steam whistle.
