Curtiss OX5 V8 8.2 litre 1915/16 AERO ENGINE RESERVED - ANOTHER AVAILABLE -
Recently rebuilt engine
Up to 350ft lbs torque
Fit a 2-speed gearbox with 2:1 axle to a suitable chassis and you have a 100+mph car for track or for road use, all at a leisurely 1400rpm or so... Would keep up with most things!

Build yourself a fantastic special like the Curtiss engined Le Zebre or Berliet included as examples here in the last three photos, both seen at VSCC Prescott this year
It should be noted that it is ONLY the engine for sale - not the test rig, radiator or copper piping from the radiator, fuel tank and fuel, battery, starter motor, flywheel, test rig controls, workbench, workshop equipment or anything else in the photographs, other than the actual engine for sale. A transport cradle will be provided to keep the engine supported during transit, duly strapped down by the purchaser, and not used for any other purpose than transporting and storing the engine. The blue transport cradle is not strong enough to run the engine and is shown in the last photo. Nothing else in the last photo is for sale or included in the sale. Apologies for this explanation but a time waster wanted everything in the photos!
