I have a race team in the UK running a Hunton 40 in our 'Marathon' series of racing. I am changing to diesel power(much more popular in Europe than the USA)
As a result I have two un-used V8 petrol engines for sale. They are 572 cubic inch(9.4litre)big block Chevy and supercharged. Just been rebuilt and dyno run-in by Robin Ward of Thunderstreak fame( His business is race cars so he is a specialist in this area(see Ferrari servicing and Group C » They are producing about 950hp and 1200 ft/lbs of torque. If preferred the supercharger can be removed and they will give 700-750hp and better fuel consumption. Due to the nature of Marathon racing these engines have been put together with great care and attention to reliability. Electronic over rev protection has been added.
The spec is as follows:
Electronic ignition control which monitors speed, boost and inlet temp
Two 4 cyclinder coils for controlled spark timing
Two 4 barrel holly carbs
BBS superchargers
Holley fuel pumps
Dual air cleaner/spark arrester
Large baffled sumps
Tall motorsport blocks
4.5inch stroke and bore
Balanced cranks, rods, pistons and flywheels.
Steel rods
Forged pistons with anti scuff coating
Roller rockers
New cams and followers
New piston rings
Heads rebuilt
Carbs rebuilt
Hi capacity oil pumps
New water pump impellors
Dyno run in and tested, dyno sheets available.
Headers included

If you seek good, solid, reliable power these engines will not let you down. Grab yourself a bargain!
The engines are located in the UK and I can either arrange shipping(at cost)or they can be collected here. I can send you dyno sheets and photos and I can arrange for you to speak to Robin for full details.
For a quick response I can offer them at $36,000 for the pair which is considerably less than they have cost me!!
Please contact [email protected] or +44 7921 299224 for further details if interested.

Hi Folks

I’d appreciate your advice…..
I have a friend who runs a marine business in San Francisco with plenty of storage. If I shipped the engines there would they be more attractive to an American buyer? Is the fact that they are in the UK a problem?
Secondly, how is the pricing? I looked on OSO and they seemed pretty good value by comparison.
Anyway, your thoughts much appreciated.
