It's a racing crossflow head, on a normal CIH block. Different pistons of course, due to different valve locations. Very rare, very costly. Pricey to run and maintain. That particular GT/engine you have a photo of wears out its' cam about every 3000 miles. At a cost of about $1500 a cam.....

That is a Conrero road GT, not a racing version. Still very rare. Located in England presently.

Rally Bob's right.

The engine is a Conrero crossflow motor, 2.3 litres in discplacement and happens to belong in the car of my good friend Martyn Linford, Chairman of the UK Opel GT Owners Club.

Engine has cost a small fortune to rebuild and if the cams last 500miles it's a miracle..................this doesn't matter a bit as this in my mind is the most special GT in exsistance, and as far as I'm aware Martyn's Conrero is the only one the road, although another 2/3 may exsist out there.

Wow...very interesting history. What is the HP of it and can you tell us the reason that the cams wear so quickly?
