This is my circa 1900/1901 Locomobile steam car project.Purchased many years ago as a collection of parts ,it consists of some original and some remanufactured components.
It has an original Locomobile engine,rebuilt,tested on compressed air.
Original manual water pump.
Some chassis components.
All the other parts have been made by me using the original Locomobile drawings.
Probably 95% completed it requires steam fittings,plumbing,the steam automatic( can be purchased or I have a set of castings),
and the burner needs a few bits to finish.
The fuel,air and water tanks are all tested and fitted and the muffler is installed.
The boiler has all its certificates ,is CE marked and has been hydraulically tested.(not steamed).It has new wheels and tyres,upholsted seats,new oak body framing and woodwork with a spindle seat back.
Many parts and materials are included and also a set of disc brakes for a future modification if found to be necessary.
New drive sprockets and differential gears are fitted.
This is a very detailed restoration/recreation built regardless of cost and I have run out of steam to finish it.
I will include a set of King Of The Road brass road lamps and
all the drawings and information collected over the years .
I also have all the parts of a purpose made road trailer(dismantled for storage)
This vehicle deserves to be finished,I just have too many other vintage car projects and not enough time.A regretful sale.I will be visiting the Great Dorset Steam Fair 2018 if you would like to discus the vehicle in detail(not taking car)please ring or email to arrange.
I would be interested in a sensible offer.
Please contact me,Steve for more information.
