The Model 735, produced from 1918 through 1922, was one of the most successful late Stanley models, with an estimated 1,100 built, constituting more than 10% of the company’s total output. It used the same 20-horsepower power plant that remained fundamentally unchanged from 1915 through 1924.
Our Model’s History
This Model 735 was purchased in 1946 from the original owner in New Haven, Connecticut, at a cost of $75. It had 5,038 miles on the odometer. According to the serial number, this was the fourth Model 735 produced.
Soon after purchase, the car was repainted by Bill Allaband in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, and likely had a newly-retubed boiler installed. The car was then driven on the 1947 Glidden Tour in New England and on the 1953 Glidden Tour to Detroit, and with its newly designed piston valve engine, to a Steam Car Tour at Kent, Ohio, in 1957.
