Our previous article, “Part And Parcel”covered only a tiny portion of the vast array of collectible reproductions of automobile components; a situation we’ll try to redress by examining several outstanding scale model engines, starting with a group produced by GMP in 1:6 scale several years ago.
Offered were 12-cylinder motors from Ferrari; a 250 Testa Rossa, a 250 SWB, a 250 GTO (pictured), and a flat-12 312 PB (pictured). Also produced were three different 4-cylinder inline Offenhausers; a “clean” version (pictured), a “dirty” race-used version, and a turbocharged Indy engine. A group of three Ford V8 Flatheads followed, along with a Keith Black Chrysler drag racing engine.
