What engine should I put in to my 67 split?

Post by Jezza » Sat May 21, 2016 11:59 am

So our bus is being rebuilt, it survived its acid dip and now is been painstakingly welded back together. Had a 1776 twin Webber carbs in the boot when I got it, Which annoyingly blew up. So I got a 2.7 flat six and have had it rebuilt.
Am I best to stick a VW or a Porsche engine in?

Sell the 2.7, hopefully there's profit in it for you. If so, then buy another 1776.

Thanks for your response, it seems the more I look in to it the less of an option it becomes with the flat 6.
Amazingly the first person I have asked about the Porsche has already give me an offer for it!
The only problem now is how to value the engine and box as again there quite rare, i've been checking on flea bay etc but haven't any for sale. Any ideas?

I would say about 3.5k if u want to sell it. Ask much more and its likely to stay on your garage floor.
