Standard Steam Car

The Standard Steam Car was an American steam car manufactured by the Standard Engineering Company of St Louis, Missouri from 1920 until 1921. Also known as the Scott-Newcomb, it featured a front condenser that resembled a Rolls-Royce-shaped radiator and was similar in appearance to the Roamer. The car had a twin-cylinder horizontal steam engine and used kerosene for fuel. The boiler pressure was stated as 600psi but it was claimed to be able to raise a full head of steam within a minute. One touring car is known to have been built; the company may have produced as many as five vehicles before folding.
