Stanley Steamer
The Stanley Steamer was a steam-powered automobile developed by twin brothers Francis E. Stanley and Freelan O. Stanley. The Maine natives’ innovative design virtually eliminated the risk of explosion in kerosene-heated pressure boilers. The powerful Stanley Steamers were fast, reliable, and competitively priced. In 1906, the Stanley Rocket set a world land speed record at 127.7 miles per hour at the Daytona Beach Road Course. The record is the longest-standing official land speed record for a steam car. However, the Stanley Motor Carriage Company was unable to compete with the popularity of the internal combustion engine and closed in 1917. Several attempts to revive steam-powered autos have been made.
