Obviously, not mine.

Repco Brabham ( Australia ) is looking to sell some of their pieces, including 2 block and girdle combos.

The blocks are 85mm and the crank is 72mm which i am calculating to be 199.43ci or 3.268L. It would seem to be a very oddball displacement.

The current exchange rate is ~.81 USD to AUD, so you'd be looking at about $13,000.

There was a time I would have jumped on that.
Then built a car around the engines.
Of course back then the price would have been a LOT less too.
These are a long way from running engines.
I expect they will go to someone running a vintage formula car.

*shrugs*

We've got guys looking at fabbing up DOHC heads. If you've already got a block designed for OHC cams, that might make your life a lot easier.

Repco also has the historical curiosity thing going for them.

I wondered if "Assorted un-machined castings" might include raw cylinder heads.
