I haven't been able to find a heading for this yet so here we go. I have inherited a few boxes full of Cox, and Thimble Drome engines. Some of them are easy to identify but there are a few that I am having some difficulty with. Can anyone help me identify which model this might have come from. I have a few of them that look exactly the same.

That one looks to be from a car, corvette, buick, with the tell tale driver gear and fan. Looks to have a aftermarket Tatone muffler attached , probably more of an exhaust collector than muffler, to direct the exhaust/castor oil out the bottom of the frame.
Post a side view pic of the engine so we can see the name on the casting of the muffler.

That’s really nice!  You even have a original Tatone muffler and packaging! Those would certainly be helpful in containing the exhaust flow and oil to the exterior of the model. Although you’d have to drill a hole in the frame to accommodate the exit pipe.
