Stanley built 24 cars of this model in 1916, only 2 examples have survived which are this car EL1004 and a similar one in the USA which was found in an orchard with a tree growing through it.

The museum decided to sell the car as being surplus to requirements in 1974 and it was bought by Mr. Dennis Brooks in Yorkshire.
