Re: 1926 Star 6 complete engine with test stand - $750 (Walla Walla Wa)

Hi Bob,
I had a chance to look at this engine and radiator last Sunday on my way back from Montana to Portland. The engine/radiator were acquired as part of an all or nothing estate sale that came along with a number of Ford cars. Herb Mettler (509-337-6204) is the owner who wants to sell the engine/radiator combination. I had a chance to inspect the engine and radiator as well as take a few photo's. The radiator shell is straight except for one ding on the upper right side. It is painted a grey color and is off of a 1929 Durant. The engine is a 14L six cylinder(probably 169 cubic inch). The name tag says Star 14L-35647. The block has a casting date of 6-2-25. The head has a casting date of 11-27-28 and is a 15L-A606. We did not run the engine so the condition of both the engine and radiator is unknown. Herb is located at 44 DeWitt Road, Waitsburg, WA 99631. Phil
P.S.-Let me know if you want to see the photo's and I will e-mail them to you. Adding them to this forum is above my pay grade!

Thanks Phil.
I do not need the pictures since I do not have a car from those years.
Thanks for checking it out and taking pictures in case anyone in the club might be looking for an engine/radiator like that.
