1909 Stanley Steamer Model R

Chassis number : 5002

Share on:

This car is one of eight Stanley Model Rs left in the world. Properly called the Stanley Steam Car (the Stanley brothers hated the name Stanley Steamer), the Model R Gentleman's Speedster was one of five models listed in the 1909 Stanley catalog. It sold for around $1,500 with or without an optional convertible top. Its 2- horsepower, twin-cylinder engine is simplicity itself with only a dozen or so moving parts. It will cruise at 50 mph and climb steep hills with ease. Steam powered cars were simple to drive with no changing gears and impossible to stall, but the biggest disadvantage was the starting process which could take 30 minutes and involved a blowtorch rather than a key. This Stanley has been cared for in the current owner's collection for 16 years and is used often.
