I've seen them "asked" for around $600. They probably fetch what someone's willing to pay, based on just how bad they want it.

Value of a factory cut-away engine on factory 3 or 4 dip cast iron engine display stand is around $3000.

When have you last seen an original display stand for sale? KR Wilson stands for engine repair are expensive too!

Rose City Model T Club has one that some members built years ago. It's on loan to a museum between Portland and Salem. Don

Most cutaway for any car especially a highly collected car would valuable after 100 years. I have seen a cutaway 1965 289cid v8 4v ford bring $2500 20 years ago in Charlotte mtr speedway swap. If it would have been in a 65 mustang it would have been a A code serial number car and the power plant right under the 289 hi po v8 0r any 65-66 Shelby standard engine. Tim

Recreated this one using original factory cutaway stand. Ford began selling these to dealers in 1923.

You can view this one now at the Piquette Plant museum

They are easier to make than you might think. My shop students made a cutaway engine using mostly a Sawzall with metal cutting blades.
