This is a genuine Curtiss Wright R1820 Engine Cylinder Head, the R-1820s are the same engines that were used on B-17 Bombers. As a matter of fact, I was told by the old gentleman that I bought it from that it did indeed come from a B-17 at one time.
The Gentleman that I bought it from has been a Military Aircraft collector for a very long time, all the way back into the 1950s. This particular head was sitting in a warehouse for a very long time. I put the head covers back on and cleaned it up on the outside to make it look very presentable. It stands approximately 21 inches tall and 14 inches wide. If you are looking for a workable part, I do not have any paperwork.If you are a collector of WWII Air-War items then this would be a must-have! You could own a piece of a B-17 Bomber! (The last two pictures are for reference only). See my other listings for more U. I will not be held responsible if the package does not arrive to you.
