Depending on the condition, you're looking at probably $30,000 for a
complete static display on upwards of $500,000 for a fully functional
ebgine.

Last I heard the dash numbers used in P-51s ran about $70,000 for a rebuilt
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'm thinkning roughly half that ($15K or so) for a static example
(especially the early dash numbers, -1, -3, etc.) and $50K+ for an
airworthy example of a later dash number (-7 or -9).

Reminds me of the joke that goes "How much money will it take
to restore a "whatchamacallit-1"?

Answer: All of it!

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.

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
performance.

The memory is very vague.

I think they were Chrysler engines. I know that Chrysler did a lot of
coupled engined arrangements. A 5 engine tank comes to mind.

No, I am certain they were V12 Packards. I did a web search on PT
Boats, and confirmed my recollection.

Fair enough, I don't pretend to know much about the PT boats.

I think PT boats used Allison v-12's.
