Hi Gordon, thank you for the reply. Yes the car its a keeper. The goal is to get the car back to original. How would I know if it needs the DCO3 setup, please excuse my ignorance but what does that mean?
Luckily the car is unmolested, just has the incorrect engine, all else is good
The nice thing is you don't need to BUILD the whole engine at once. I restored an AUSCA test engine some years ago, begining with just the original head, manifold and Webers. It took me YEARS to gather all the parts, a piece at a time. Completed result? Easily worth both the cost and effort.
Here's more. Try e-bay #221638290453 for a 750 Normale engine complete. Then if you have deep pockets, here is a 59 750 Veloce engine AND transmission, e-bay #261705658214. The first one in Norway, the second in Wisconsin USA. I've no relatioship with either seller.
I have a complete engine/trans combo with orig headers intake etc. Very nice. From 58 veloce. Contact me via email at [email protected] if interested. I also have many pairs of DCO3's in concours cond.
I only want to say that Mr. Kollar has a nice engine and very complete down to air box and air filter cannister. He has been very forthcoming with info and pictures and I'm not sure if we will end up purchasing it or not. His price is spot on the market if not reasonable so if you are seriously looking for such an engine his seems like a great choice.
Hi Gordon, Trust you are well. Once again thank you for all your valuable input. I chatted to Greig today, slowly I am getting to know the local players and learning a ton. Will keep you posted as I progress.
