Sold for £18,750 (US$ 30,610) inc. premium

Lot Details
An early 1920s British Anzani OHV 8-valve 1000cc V-Twin aero engine,
engine No. cc81961, 2-cylinders, in partially dismantled condition, comprising bottom end of crankcase and crank reported as having never been split, and showing little sign of use, while remaining parts comprise two restorable heads, two cylinders with pistons and other components and sundry parts, all in used condition, and constituting a substantial part of a whole engine, originally believed to be for aeronautical use built for inverted installation into 'Flying Flea' aircraft and having large output mainshaft for direct coupling to an airscrew. Due to the engine's original intention to be used with end thrust on the crank, it is the vendor's opinion that this would form a good basis of an engine for a Morgan or Cycle-Car where clutch thrust is an issue, inspection advised.
