Doble "E" Boiler


Factory Doble “E” boiler.  The housing came with it but not the burner nor the controls.  Lawrence J. Strong purchased this directly from the Doble factory, probably when Besler was selling things, and he started to install it in a 1936 Ford with a 20 hp Stanley engine bolted to the Ford rear axle.  The car was built in 1943 for use during WWII but it was never gotten into running condition.  Purchased from Vic Snell in Oregon.    Doble E Boiler
