20 HP Nichols & Shepard

An engine that speaks for itself, the 20-70 Nichols & Shepard. These engines where often referred to as the "The Gold Standard in Steam" and from the first impression its easy to see why. With a large crank disk and factory canopy one can't help but find themselves attracted. BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Only adding to the looks of this engine ones eyes are drawn to the chrome plated connecting rod and throttle handle. "Of all the companies that manufactured steam engine in the US, Nichols & Shepard was one of the earliest and most stubbornly resistant to change. Steam is, was and always will be king" CH Wendel 

Serial No. 12817
