UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $100.

Steve spotted this block. Maybe someone can use it?


“I have for sale a used 1954 6-cylinder Kaiser Darrin 161 CI (2.6L) Willys Hurricane F-head bare cylinder block. It has the main caps and does have some surface rust from sitting. It appears that the cylinders have been bored .020 over as they measure 3.30” from the standard 3.10” bore. Other than a broken exhaust manifold stud just ahead of the #2 exhaust port, this block doesn’t appear to have any issues at all and it has all 4 original main caps and bolts. I would like to get $100 for the block plus shipping if needed. Local pickup would certainly be preferred but I can ship via truck freight.”

    excuse me , but this is just a willys f-161 hurricane engine — nothing on it would say KAISER-DARRIN — kaiser henry j’s had willys L-134’s and L-161’s — kaiser supersonic 226’s — i have them all — i had an offer to buy a kaiser darrin back in the 70’s – $5000 , fixer-upper , i thought it was too expensive — WRONG !! — they go for 6 figures now !!

    That was my assumption, but I wasn’t sure if there were any differences between the Darrin version of the engine and others.

    You should say approximately speaking where you are located. Does not sound lie you have Parts?

    Hi Will,

    It looks like this has sold. I’ve updated the post. I never saw any other parts offered as a part of the ad.
