1969 SE-124 Chevelle Converted to Steam by Bill Besler
1969 SE-124 Chevelle converted to steam by Bill Besler in Emeryville, California. This car has 5,000 road miles on it and started from cold in two minutes. It was constructed in one year under contract for General Motors and after they tested it was given back to Besler to donated it to Harrah's Museum from where it was deaccessioned. The engine is a cast iron double acting piston valve compound engine. Fuel is kerosene and boiler is based on the Besler smoke generator coils. Because of the small space in the engine compartment it is underpowered and was limited to about 55 mph.

On "My Car Story" we're in the Suburbs of Chicago on 8-6-16. We're looking at a THE ONLY Steam Powered Indianapolis 500 Race Prototype Racecar in 1968 to run hopefully run in 1969 ( which it never did) built by Bill Lear of Lear Motors Corporation named the Lear Vapordyne # 23. The car's Owner is Rick Parsons. Rick saw this car at an auction in 1997, and 2 years later bought the car in 1999. This is currently the only known video of the car. Rick shares in his discussion on the fascination for this car, “I’ve always been interested in the engineering aspects of race cars“ and “things of unique engineering exercises are quite interesting to me.” Well Rick…I can see why this car would be on your list to acquire, because this car meets all your criteria of a race car with unique engineering. ENJOY!
