Weren't there 3, V12 Packards in the PT boats? I think they were
not based on the Merlin, but certainly were similar in size and
The memory is very vague.

Last I heard the dash numbers used in P-51s ran about $70,000 for a
engine and a P-51 prop was about $50,000.
My question: Is there such a thing as an orphan version of the Merlin as
there are with other engines?
I've been trying to sort that out. Apparently Rover did Meteor engines for
Centurion tanks. It's a derivative of the Merlin but without the blower.
I know of one in Canada if you're interested.
