Available in Connecticut: Type 547 Engine

Porsche 547 EngineI know, you can’t do much with just an engine. And at $127,000, this engine is some serious bread. This is no ordinary engine, my friend. This is the Porsche 4-cam. This magical little marvel of engineering powered the Porsche 550, the 356 Carrera GT, and the early Porsche 904s to many a victory. You may not be able to do much with just an engine, but this would be perfect just as a display piece. Better yet, drop it in your 356. It may be sacrilege to some, but bolting this into a 550 kit would be pure driving joy.

Give it a listen in this video. Couldn’t you just hear that all day? More info at the classified listing on the Pelican Forums and at the owner’s page.

What a wonderful sound.
