The all original, on the outside, 255 in my 52 Merc. It has worn off most of the blue paint sprayed on the engine back in about 1980 when the engine was rebuilt. Otherwise all original paint. Cleanest the engine bay has been in 50+ years.

These are pictures of the engine I put in my 39 convertible over
45 years ago. This is a brand new world war II engine purchased
from Carpenter. He purchased tractor trailer loads of new engines
and parts from the Canadian Government and is still selling these
parts. If I remember I paid $200.00 for the engine which is a 100
HP 24 stud heavy cylinder wall block. I have put over 125.000
miles with a lot of long higher speed trips 10 hours straight at
over 75 MPH. These were trips from Florida to Penna. and returning
to Florida several months later. Carpenter also had a load of truck
heads no one wanted and he used these on the new engines he
shipped. I had a few thousandths milled off these heads and used
them. This is the engine I ran at my shop for a week doing the
heat tests and developed the turbine type impeller. I made one
impeller which took several days to make installed it on the left
side of my 39 and the temperature on that side dropped way down.
We sent that impeller to a pattern maker and he made a 8 or 10
pattern plate for the foundry to cast the new impellers. Skip has
the foundry cast barrels of them and he has to clean and machine
them. G.M.

Lucky you! I have one of those manifolds, and would love a set of those heads, but they're hard to find (and expensive) in the states. I would say they are just as desirable as a set of finned heads to some folks. I guess there is an advantage to being in Canada. (Actually, I can think of a bunch.)

All those engines are too pretty. How about an unrestored version?
