Original Porsche 962 Cylinder Head

Original Porsche 962 Cylinder Head

Original Porsche 962 Cylinder Head.

A GREAT item from the time when the mighty Group C 962's ruled the seas of endurance racing.

This is an original cylinder head & cylinder of a 962.

In the 962, the head & cylinder were a one-piece assembly and so is this one.

This particular one comes from a blown engine and has "severe" damage to the combustion chamber. Two valves are locked solid in their guides and of a 3rd valve only the stem is left...

A great and rarely available conversation piece that everybody will want to study and take a closer look at. Looking down the cylinder bore gives a fascinating view of the 4-valve arrangement.

Only 1 available.

We offer FREE shipping to ANY destination in the world on this item but given its value, we advise you to take the optional insurance (available at check-out) on it.
