Italmeccanica supercharger

Hello, Ive tried to do a little research on a supercharger I have found. All I really know about it, is its a Italmeccanica supercharger with 1 carb and the intake is for a flathead v-8. I guess it was removed from a 1940 ford about 40 years ago. I understand that you guys will probably need more info about it, but can someone give me an IDEA what it is worth? Thanks

Go to ebay closed auctions,

A lot depends on how complete it is, and what condition. I would guess the single carb model would be less valuable.

There is a write up on those in the old Clymer "How to Hop Up Ford Flathead V8 engines" or similar title. I have an oriinal copy somewhere, but I believe its available as a reprint these days

I just found out some more info about the supercharger. It DOES have 2 carbs, i dont know what i was thinking about it having just one. It says 4000 and f/172 on it. It has the intake for the 49-53 flat head engine. I have a picture but can not upload it to my computer. I can email or text the picture though. It has been stored in a house since 1972 and was taken off a running engine. Does this help pinpoint the value at all? Thanks

The value is...what someone is willing pay. Your "mission" should be to get good pix and all pertinent info to the widest possible audience.
