Indeed, when I bought Bade's 911's there was a box of pictures. The family said I could take a few if I wanted them.

Very pretty,
This one would seem to lack the fuel pressure regulator (mount on bulkhead) and have a later (12v?) voltage regulator.

Very nice. I once tried placing a 16 cylinder 917 crank in our living room telling my wife it was art. She did not agree

Hi Hartmut
To me that is not a 587/3 engine. It is a Roller crank engine with Abarth external cam flywheels and 90* drive without support.

Joris and Hartmut:

Like Joris I tried to convince my wife for 20 years that the motor was an excellent piece of art for our living room. But alas no success so it had to go into the Speedster.

The best I can get away with is artwork, actual parts are always a no.
