Packard-Built Merlin Parts Engine Offered For Sale

A Packard-built Rolls Royce Merlin Model V1650-7 is being offered as a parts engine.

Heads are missing as is most of the intake system within the V. Carburetor and Magnetos are also missing as are some external engine accessories which can be noted from the pictures, Cylinders are very rusty as engine was poorly stored with the heads off.

Accelerator linkage bolted to supercharger casting at rear of engine is very rusty and frozen.
