Automobiles

Several Stanley cars in a row

Considered an operating collection, most of the antique automobiles in the Marshall Steam Museum are road-registered and may be driven on public roads. Friends of Auburn Heights volunteers take them to local shows and special events, regularly participating in parades, fundraisers, community events, and the East Coast steam car tours. On today’s roads, Stanleys travel between 25 mph and 45 mph, which can be challenging in modern traffic conditions, but in their heyday, these automobiles were known for their hill-climbing ability, silent operation, and speed. Stanleys could out-climb and out-accelerate contemporary cars due to what the Stanleys termed the latter’s inferior “internal explosion engines.” Explore our collections by clicking on a picture below.
