This body is identical in every detail to one exhibited by Brewster (on a Brewster chassis) in the Astor Hotel show in NY in 1918.  Open beam ceiling, leather top, roof ventilator, quartered oak interior, leather paneling, spindled-back front seat, woven cane door panels.  Advertised as belonging to wealthy eccentric Hettie Green; she passed away in 1916.  Plate shows no model designation - clearly sold as chassis and had this body installed.  Transitions to Stanley hood and chassis are of a character that makes it unlikely that this body installation was actually done by Brewster. Beckner owned since at least the 1950s.

Engine # appeared in Sprague as 22164 - believed to be a different car.

A collection of parts that Hutchinson gathered while building another car. Body parts from a 1921 735.  Front axle and wire wheels bought as non-Stanley.  Engine and rear axle found separately. Frame cut, found in a museum.  Serial # plate missing.  Could be 1922, as quite a few Stanleys were imported into Australia that year.
