[ROVERNET - UK] P2 Engine

    We do have a '47 12 Tourer with no engine issues just now.  But we are 
in northeast USA, so maybe should be interested in a spare engine.  Hate to 
see its identity lost forever from its original car.  I've not a clue what 
such an engine is worth either in North America or anywhere else - certainly 
less as a spare than when there is real need.
