Read about her stellar performance at the "Race of the
|"Rebecca" is a lovely seven-passenger 1924 Model 750B Touring Car.
Restored in the 1960s, she spent many years in an Idaho museum before finding her way to Oshkosh, WI,
to Dallas, TX.
Rebecca toured very actively in 2006 and 2007 before her former owner "ran out of steam."
After some minor piping work this summer, Rebecca runs like a dream, easily holding 400+ pounds of pressure in her 24-inch boiler. With a modified propane pilot, the driver need never worry about losing the pilot while driving-- A quick flick of a switch ensures that it, and consequently the car, continues to steam along nicely.
Rebecca's fuel tank was sealed and her check valves have been re-seated. Several valves have been re-seated and repacked. She has a new boiler check valve and new piping on the top of the boiler.
Rebecca's water and fuel pumps work perfectly, easily maintaining the boiler water level and the fuel pressure at 100 psi.
Since we've had her on the road this summer, Rebecca has made quite an impression on the local Packard community. She tied for First Place in the heavily advertised "Race of the Century!" on August 21st, 2010, thus securing her place in Dallas Car Club Lore.
Lucky for Steam Car Aficionados, Rebecca is FOR SALE, at $74,900 OBO. She is an excellent example of a running condensing car, complete with a California Top, good tires, very presentable paint, leather upholstery, and modern propane pilot light. Painted a beautiful, bright green, she is sure to attract attention on the street-- A perfect addition to any existing car collection or the perfect start to a new one!
Rebecca is ready to tour!
