    I was mainly responding to the 700 Horse power, although I did have a supercharged engine at one time. It had the offset manifold but the blower was missing like this one. It is hard to tell from his description if he has the blower, but I would assume that if he did, he would show it.

    Well, I can see it has the Avanti harmonic balancer, and the idler wheel and arm for the supercharger.

    You know, I have everything here to duplicate that car, except for the accessories required to mount the blower to the engine. I guess I'm wealthier than I thought.

    It appears to have been a supercharged engine at one time, but the supercharger is missing. The special water manifold mount is there, as well as the pulleys and the tensioner. I can't tell if the intake manifold is correct, but it is missing the carburetor and supercharger plumbing. Can't tell about the fuel pump and the rest of it, but if you have several of these laying around the shop, you are a lucky man.

    I don't want to be too critical of these guys putting Studebakers on eBay, but I did want to lighten up the photos so I could see what a 700 HP Studebaker engine looks like. Now that I have seen it, I think I have several of those 700 HP engines lying around in my shed! I also lightened up the picture of the car so I could see that better too.
