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.
