Steam car with Locomobile engine - stock code 6664

One of those seriously mad projects that gets us all excited here in the workshop. This is a DIY steam car, somebody's vision based around rather an elegant small horse-drawn trap, into which the intention was to graft a new Franklin and Bell firetube vertical boiler and an original Locomobile steam car engine. Mad, but it might just work...

Some major components here - the boiler comes with a gas burner and all paperwork - but will need plenty of hard graft and not a little imagination to see it out on the streets in full Edwardian splendour.
