This car was reconstructed 8 years ago and has approximately 500 miles.
When assembling the car I tried to adhere to the original design and construction techniques. The new body is made of solid ash and polar, steam bent as original. I stuck with the original single fuel system, it burns regular gas.
I deviated in 4 places from original :
- Installed a custom [decent looking] boiler gauge.
- Used modern sealed and lube bearings on all wheels.
- Used modern roller bearings on the connecting rods
- And, I installed??fully adjustable and equalized brakes.
These are invisible.
Boiler is by Kelso, the top and upholstery are by Loren Burch. Tires are Universal 3 1/2 x 36 clincher.
There a 6 chime whisle.
I’m asking $135,000.
