Help! Who knows about Cipolla .049

Post  VGE_Hobbies on Wed May 18, 2016 5:46 pm

Who knows about Cipolla .049 engines? I have one used that I want to sell. Are they desirable and what are they worth. Mine is in great condition with tons of compression. Thanks for the help in advanced.

Are you sure it is 049?



This was Cipollas flagship also known as the "Italian Bee". I am not aware of an 049 version though - only an 049 diesel.

Value? No idea! I got this one for £36 in 2013. But this one - as you can see - is new in box with original papers.

Unfortunately, the version you have the link to has a modified needle head and removes it from the collectors realm.

I had a used one before this and restored it to pristine but not perfect but I swapped it for two DC Wasps that needed TLC.

I can't really help on value - I have seen too many extraordinary events on Fleabay to predict anything recently and the value of rare but used engines has fallen recently.

Reggie.
I have no idea of a value but would be interested in being added to your list when you come up with a $ figure that you're after. Just something a little different for the collection. I currently don't have any Italian engines.

I had one I got with a Hacker models kit. Quite unspectacular :-) It sold for about $30 or so.

Ian, thanks for the help. I had no idea of the displacement on it. Comparing to a Cox 049, the piston is bigger. I also just removed the nut and solder from the needle valve and it looks stock now.
