Corvair Engine - Short Block with 5th Wheel by Bill Clapp - Everything you need to complete, Warp Drive Prop, Dual Ignition, $4000 OBO

I was going to build up this engine to replace a tired Jabiru but I wound up selling the plane. Most everything you need to complete the project is included: Shortblock with 5th Bearing, New Pistons, rings, conditioned and balanced connecting rods, new cylinders, stainless steel exhaust, aluminum intake manifold, Dual point distributor, ignition wires, separator, Warp Drive 3 blade Prop and much more. You just need to add a carb and some time. Also included are all the books on the subject, William Wynne', Bill Clapps and others. I will update the pictures as I find time. I am asking $4000 for everything, or best offer. Contact Jerry Prado @ 720-759-9602 or email me to

This is pretty much the same combination I've been looking into.  Curious about shipping, or are you thinking pickup only?

I don't have time to prepare it for shipping. I will consider delivering it all if you are within 150 miles of the Denver - Seattle - San Francisco triangle.


Hi Jerry, please advise if this is Bill Clapp's 100 HP or 120 HP engine.
