Badger Steam & Gas Engine Swap Meet Puts Stover Engines In the Ring

Stover engines fit right in at the Badger Steam & Gas Engine Club’s annual swap meet and auction in Baraboo, Wis.

Stover Stuff
At $2,300, we would consider this the buy of the Badger Steam & Gas Engine Club auction. These upright Stovers are rare, and while the engine needed a little TLC, it was still well worth the money. The records tell us that this engine is a 4 HP Type YB shipped to P.T. Legare, Quebec, Canada, on Jan. 15, 1912. Stover shipped many engines to Legare. The nameplate indicates this is a “Freeport” engine.
