  • R3 Engine for Sale B103

    I have a Granetelli B103 R3 engine for sale. Built and ready to go. I do have over 800 pictures of the engine before during and after the restoration. No expenses were spared on the engine, but I have to sell it. Please email me at for information or pictures.

    Hi, Nimesh,

    Good to have you back on board. (You do know you just guaranteed yourself to receive about 500 e-mail requests for info? EVERYONE here wants an R3, but very few have the jingle.

    thnx, jv.

      No jingle, just drool [].

        count me in there... only thing I have worth enough to trade for it would be the car I'd want to put it in

        This may be a dumb question, but someone interested may want to know... does it include the supercharger setup, and if so, is it Avanti or Lark/Hawk style? Or was the R3 only available with the Avanti brackets and pulleys?

          N8, you don't have enough value in both your cars to trade. <g> All the R3's used a side mount blower.

              I wonder how many in my "fleet" I would have to trade to get this? Just imagine, "Honey, I'm home and just traded 5 trucks for one uninstalled motor."

                I'd guess they'd have to be at least $5,000 trucks (each) for a Nimesh built R3. (but worth every penny...I mean truck [8D] ).

                  Greetings, All,

                  Had a nice, long conversation with Nimesh about his R3. It is definitely the best one which can be built - everything is literally perfect and brand new. Since the most recent complete R3 sold for a reported $28k, my guess his should be worth $35-50k. Whether anyone will pay that remains to be seen, but we all wish we could.

                  thnx, jv.
