WEST COAST PROFESSOR DEMONSTRATES NEW COMPACT STEAM CAR AT SEATTLE


| March/April 1962

  • Steam car
    After detailing the construction of the new compact steam car, Professor Mason called Carl Guth to pull back the curtain and drive in the new steamer.
  • The car rolled into the dining room
    As the car rolled into the dining room, Carl tooted the whistle and all in attendance stood up and roared. They gathered around the car and almost trampled on it. It was then decided to put it on a table so that everyone could see it.

Wendell Mason, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, had colored slides of the engine parts, rear axle makeup, pumps and boiler of his latest steam car. He explained each part shown on the screen. The engine is a three cylinder compound, and the crankshaft is in the rear axle housing with gears on the ends of the crankshaft similar to the Sentinel truck.

The accompanying pictures are so you can see it.
