1910 Stanley Touring Model 71

A stylish touring car with outstanding performance, the Model 71 came equipped with top and side curtains, but a windshield was optional. The wood body is the smallest and lightest supplied by the Stanleys. While rated at 20 horsepower, the engine was capable of developing 105 horsepower, given unlimited steam.

Purchased from Mr. Gould of Union, New Hampshire, in 1945, this car underwent restoration the following year and was then driven and shown at the Antique Automobile Club of America Fall Meet at Devon, Pennsylvania. An excellent original car, the only known mechanical work done at that time was the installation of a newly retubed boiler and a wheel change to a slightly smaller diameter, making it possible to get tires.

This Model 71 again underwent professional restoration in 1998 by Charles W. Johnson of Wellsville, Pennsylvania.
