Thomson Car Engine

Vintage Australian 2 Stroke

Thomson 2 stroke car engine.
Made in Adelaide c.1947.
If you want a rare engine in your collection,
this is it - the only one in the world! It’s a fact;
Research has shown that this is the only one built.
A dream that was never realised. The engine features a built up,
roller bearing crank and rotary intake valve.
The photos show all that is left.
The timing cover, ignition system and carburettor are missing.
The generator was probably from a Ford 10, with attached fan.
The fabricated steel clutch housing mates to a Ford 10 gearbox.
