    Rolls Royce straight 6 engine & BW auto box,

    Hi all, I have a Rolls Royce 4 litre straight 6 engine and matching Borg Warner Auto box. Its been in a car that has been off the road for around 30 years but turns over nicely. I havent had it running.

    This engine was fitted to Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre 4R models, which at the time were described as a fantastic engine in a poor car! Heres the spec

    Rolls-Royce FB60 engine, 6-cylinder, ioev, in-line. 3,909cc, 95.25 x 91.44mm, 175bhp at 4,800rpm; 218lb ft at 3,000rpm. Borg-Warner 3-speed automatic transmission; Typical performance: Maximum speed 106mph; 0-60 mph 12.7sec; standing1/4-mile 18.9sec; overall fuel consumption 15mpg.







    Everything is there except for a radiator, I still have the steering column and column change too if you need it.

    This is a rare engine and would look great in a period rod or nostalgia dragster, and even has decent performance.

    I'de planned to stick it in the back of the garage for a rainy day, but the storm clouds are gathering so it has to go,

    Not sure what its worth but I'll say £700, and I'm up in Anglesey, North Wales

    I have most of the other bits off the car too if anyone needs anything

    Hi,
    can you get it running please.
    From distant memory, they didn't like head gaskets ??

    I guess that would be a good idea, I've been cutting the car up around it so need to get it back to my workshop to have a play.

    I've cut out the front crossmember and left it attached to the engine so should help with re-fitting.

    Not come across any mention of head gasket trouble but I'll see if I can find any info.

    I'm interested in the rear lights if they're any good. I also might be interested in the spare wheel cover if it's not rusty. If they're any good send me a message so we can discuss a price. Cheers

    Hi, both rear lights and lenses were beyond I'm afraid and I don't recal seeing a spare wheel cover on the car but I'll check when I go back
