Ohlsson & Rice Ohlsson 23 Gas Ignition Engine

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


New in the box and rare in this condition. It has never been run, cleaned or polished. The engine is 'free.' I can find no evidence of use. However, the prop nut has wear, so it has had a prop fitted to it at some point, which means it was probably put in a model that never flew. Serial number is 44252, and the box has this number hand-written in the proper blank spot by the factory inspector 'WB' who hand initialed it. Includes the box in 'very good' complete condition, one ignition wire, Ohlsson & Rice Manual in excellent condition, 1945 Parts List in excellent condition and Ohlsson & Rice Guarantee Card in near mint condition. There is no coil or condenser.
