Gentlemen of the CEF,

I found this at a garage sale. The owner wanted $25.00 for it.  I've never seen one before. I think it might be a car engine with all the front drive gear parts.
It also comes with a bolt on throttle. Just curious as I've never seen on before...is it worth anything??

Cheers,  Paul

Do you want to sell it?

Never seen anything like it. It doesn't have the heavy car crankcase. The pipe and throttle is neat. Looks to be part of a frame there too. Are there mounting holes for the pee wee in that frame?

I ended up passing on it as it wasn't an .049.  I never looked to close at the frame, so don't know.. Paul

The Pee Wee engine alone was probably worth the $25. At least in parts anyway. The extras were a bonus.

25 is cheap I would have paid that just to bench test the setup.
I imagine with a RC carb on a TD .020 it would up the chance of making some good rpm.
Price tag makes it $30.64 at today's rates.

Jaw Drop You left it for $25? You need to go back to that sale/house. Everything look like new. Cox/Sanwa Japanese packaging too.


Finding Cox engines in the wild around here is extremely rare. So much so I get a little over excited at finding a well used Babe Bee.
