Rover Meteor Mk.4B/2 Engine V-12 Gasoline Hot Rod Engine


⭕ Here I put up for sale an impressive Rover Meteor Mk.4B/2 engine.

It comes from a vintage British Centurion tank of the Swedish army. This engine is the altered version of the famous RR- Merlin aircraft engine.
The engine is all complete as removed from the tank in the early 90s and did not run since then.
Exterior needs quite some cleanup as its covered with oil, grease and some dust. Few spots have some corrosion. The engine turns over easely. The removal tag from the Swedish army stated that the engine is low milage and had only 4022 km or 2500 mi at the time it was taken out of the tank.


Here some figures:
