hand built 1:8 scale metal
Porsche 356 Carrera 1600 four-cam engine
with functioning internals | out of production | none available

A jewel-like 1:8 scale model, individually hand-built by a European craftsman (Nolte) who made all parts himself from the appropriate metals, rubber, bolts and screws. Bolted assembly like the real engine, no glue. Fully movable internals: functional flywheel, fan, crankshaft, pistons, cams, and valvetrain. Other perfect details include accurate ignition wires, oil and fuel lines, Weber carburetors with working linkages, and a full exhaust system. Can be displayed with cam cover (or any other pieces) removed to show internal details.
specifications: weight 1.5 lbs w/o stand; 5" L x 4.5" W x 3.5" H (7" H on stand); scale 1:8 / 1.5" = 1'
It is indistiguishable from the real engine except for size.
The 1500cc RS version with camshaft mounted distributors was also available, as was the 1500 as shown below..
