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.
