Fully restored last year, this car had previously resided for decades & decades in a european museum. Since Aquisition the car has been disassembled & fully restored & rebuilt in both mechanical & cosmetic areas.
The J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. of Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts got into the automobile business in 1901, offering a car designed by J. Frank Duryea—who, along with brother Charles, had produced America's first series-built automobiles in 1895. In November of that same year, Frank drove a Duryea horseless carriage to victory in the first automobile race ever held in America.
First generation Stevens-Duryea cars were produced between 1901 and 1906. Built on a 69-inch wheelbase, they were powered by a horizontally opposed 2-cylinder engine originally rated at five horsepower. The cars featured an unusual mechanism that permitted the driver to start the engine while seated, instead of by direct cranking. Steering was by tiller. After 1903, a 3-speed sliding gear transmission was used and the 1904 model, with its engine now rated at seven horsepower, boasted a new three-point engine mounting.
Being a twin the car is well suited to taking multiple passengers on the London to Brighton Veteran car run. A cape cart style hood provides some protection from the elements. The fold out front seat allows for carriage of two additonal passengers making it a full 4 seat car. This is a fully restored veteran that wants for nothing & would make a great car as a first foray into veteran motoring.
