Stanley Steamer 740E Roadster 1923 (9299)

Stanley Steamer 740E Roadster 1923 (9299)

Manufacturer: Stanley Motor Carriage Company, Newton, Massachusetts – USA
Type: 740E Roadster
Engine: 2059cc, 23 inch boiler; double-acting two-cylinder steam engine
Power: 60 bhp (20 boiler-horsepower)
Speed: 120 km/h
Production time: 1922 – 1927
Production outlet: unknown
Curb weight: 1840 kg

Special:
– "Power, Correctly generated, Correctly controlled, Correctly applied to the rear axle." was Stanley’s slogan at that time.
– It has been said that in order to drive a Stanley one first need learn to drive without watching the road. The need to monitor fuels, water, steam, and lubrication brought a number of valves and gauges to the dash and under the coffin-nosed hoods, and created an impressive display for the passenger but required the driver to be a part-time engineer.
– Twins Francis E. Stanley (1849–1918) and Freelan O. Stanley (1849–1940) were the world’s largest manufacturers of steam cars.
– The 740 had a larger boiler, which increased the heating surface by a third and water capacity by 50 percent.
– A Stanley steam engine provides four power impulses per crankshaft rotation similar to an 8-cylinder internal combustion engine. This provides the steam engine an advantage of more torque in a smaller package.
– Very quiet, but before you could drive away, you have to boil the kettle.
– Range about 250-400 km
– Range and speed depends on the temperature outside.
– The motor is directly connected to the rear axle (without gearbox!).
– The Stanley brothers did’t like the consumer society and therefore they tried to build "forever" continue driving cars, by using many aluminium instead of steel.
– So Stanley Steamers had steel frames and aluminum bodies and trims.
– Widespread use of electric starters (around 1914) in internal combustion engine powered cars ended the era of steam cars.

Power: 41 bhp / 5.250 rpm
Speed: 122 km/h
Production time: 1962 – 1966
Production outlet: 17,816
Curb weight: 670 kg

Special:
– It’s a variant of the original Mini, designated by Leonard Lord as project ADO15 (Amalgamated Drawing Office project number 15).
– The Riley ELF, as well as the Wolseley Hornet stablemate, were simultaneously introduced in 1961.
– Built as more luxurious versions of the Mini (a higher quality of interior trim and more external chrome), both the ELF and the Hornet had longer, slightly finned rear wings, distinctive fronts and larger boots that gave the cars a more traditional three-box design.
– The interior has a full-width wood veneer dashboard.
– It has a four-speed manual gearbox (floor lever), frontwheel drive, one SU carburettor and drum brakes (twin leading brake shoes on front).
– In May 1965 an Automatic transmission was introduced.
– The ELF and Hornet were the first "Mini’s" to feature roll-up windows (1966), face-level ventilation, remote gearchange linkage and deleted external door hinges (1966).
– As in early pre-war models, the ELF was the sporty version.
– The noticeable difference between the Elf and the Hornet is the front grille.
The Hornet has a badge at the top on the grille, which is illuminated with the lights. The Elf does not have this illuminated badge.
– Sir Alec Issigonis, the designer of the original Mini, was "not amused". He thought it was terrible.
– There were three series between 1961 and 1969:
* MK I: 1961-1962 / 848cc / 3,522 ELFs / 3,166 Hornets
* MK II: 1962-1966 / 998cc / 17,816 ELFs / 16,785 Hornets

Borgward Isabella TS Coupé 1959 (5272)

Borgward Isabella TS Coupé 1959 (5272)

Company: Carl FW Borgward GmbH in Bremen-Sebaldsbrück (Germany)
Form: Isabella TS Coupé
Motor: 1493cc straight-four
Power: eighty five bhp
Speed: 148 km/h
Output time: 1957 – 1961
Output outlet: nine,537
Curb bodyweight: 1075 kg

Particular:
– Responding to a profits drop of just about a third in 1955 and 1956, Carl Borgward resolved to make a additional gorgeous Isabella with a shortened roof line, now referred to as the Isabella TS Coupé.
– 4 hand created prototypes ended up nicely acquired by the press.
– Borgward gave a person of these prototypes to his spouse, Elisabeth, who would continue to travel it into the eighties.
– The manufacturing cars become the additional impressive TS engine with a Solex 32 PAITA carburettor.
– On ask for, the coupe was out there with (in that time) the common tail fins incorporated therein, when compared to the collection model, more substantial tail lights.
– Due to the fact Borgward all of a sudden arrived into fiscal issues (1961), manufacturing stopped in that 12 months. The manufacturing was sold to the Fabrica Nacional de Automoviles SA Monterrey (Mexico). They created from 1967 until eventually its individual bankruptcy in 1970 the Borgward P100, referred to as in Mexico the Borgward 230.
