Allison V-1710-27 Engine Restoration

Joe Bok and his team took great pride in restoring this Allison V-1710-27 engine. This engine traces its history back to a starboard engine mount on a Lockheed P-38 Lightning during 1943. Previously removed from a P-38 during the war and shipped back to the United States for overhaul on December 31st, 1943. An incredible piece of American history that has survived the years to be brought back to life once again.

Valve cover removed to show the cool overhead 4-valve per cylinder design. P-39 Exhaust Stacks are just for looks!
