Re: Free W5 Engine

Hi Fritz,

I am re-building a 28 M2 right now and was wondering if the W5 motor is still available? I haven't started diagnosing my engine yet but since the car has 72,000 miles on the odometer and has not run since 1954 (approx)it could be really valuable to me.

I would gladly like to get it this summer.

I live just outside Toronto so it is only about a 5 hour drive.

Please let me know,
Kindest regards,

Re: Free W5 Engine

Neil .. A closer place for a W5 engine might be Roblins near Picton.


Inventory still shows the cowl forward of a 29 Durant (they put 27 which its not) It and a Gray Dort same section was brought in from a saw mill. Gray Dort was picked up once I posted that to their site years back but no takers when I posted the Durant to DMAC. Should be axle, springs, half frame, rad, engine, cowl.


It might not be there still as site says crushing cars 2011 - 12 but I understand they changed their mind. The Ebay part still seems to work so ?
