Early working live steam powered race car replica with hand painted driver 15 inches long. This is a Mamod steam car made in UK by an experienced craftsman. Features include a live steam engine, active steering, hand made and hand painted driver and instructions. From 1906 -1911 steam power developed more available horsepower and a STANLEY steam powered car held the land speed record at 127 mph for 5 years.
The gas and electric cars became more powerful and the electric starter helped to end use of steam except commercially in trains and large equipment. I was told the car is operational, looks lightly used if any, but untested by me. Extreme caution is recommended as some pieces get very hot and pressurized.
