Tom Marshall: Model EX

General History

The Stanley Motor Carriage Company made styling changes in 1905–7, placing the boiler and burner under a hood in front and replacing the tiller with a steering wheel. The driver finally made it to the front seat, but he was still on the “wrong side.” The Model EX, made for three years, represented the largest production of any model throughout the Stanley company’s 25-year history.
