A NOS R-975EC-1 Engine has been found!
A NOS R-975EC-1 Engine has been lurking in private hands, in storage since 1948! It was recently acquired by a Gentlemen from Australia. NOS means New Old Stock, this motor was shipped out, probably during WWII, for use in an M4 or M4A1 Sherman, and never got used.
Most things don’t like sitting around for seven decades, but the people at Continental knew how to pack up a motor, and it looks like it is in remarkable condition. This motor is for sale, and if you are interested, please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with the owner.
