This is a one-of-a-kind engine designed and built by Glenn D. Angle in 1939 which mysteriously ended up at the New Britain Machine Co. in Connecticut for unknown reasons. Unique to this engine are the one piece aluminum allow casting of the crankcase and finned cylinders, dural forged connecting rods, nitride wrist pins, and a cadmium-silver lined steel cluster support. With its light weight and 30 inch diameter it had all the essential features for a light plane engine. Unfortunately World War II interfered and the engine was never put into production.
