The question is often asked of us, "Who would want a plastic replica engine when you can get the real thing?" We are only too glad to list the many advantages of our lightweight replicas to those who inquire, and remind them that it's not always easy to get "the real thing". We are pleased that many street rod and race car fabricators, performance retailers, and even major auto manufacturers themselves have found a myriad of uses for our products. And that in the 12-year history of P-Ayr products, we have seen our collection grow from a single Chevy short block replica to now include over 150 part numbers.
It's important to stress that while many of our
products are used for decorative
or display purposes, each one is a faithful
reproduction of the original, often
with the cooperation of the original manufacturer.
We use steel inserts for all
bolt holes, and all specifications are held to OEM
tolerances. You can bolt any
factory component or accessory to a P-Ayr engine
and it will fit. That's why
many P-Ayr engines and transmissions are used to
design and build chassis. They
are perfect for mock-ups. We endeavor to keep up
with what's new, and that's
why you will find such relatively scarce items
like the SB2 Chevy, Honda V-Tec
and Mercury marine/truck engines. With this in
mind, you can be sure we will
be continually tooling for what's new. By the same
token, we are always looking
into reproducing scarce "vintage" engines with
popular appeal. Our flathead Ford/Ardun
and 348/409 Chevy engines are typical of this
If you don't see it
on the web site, there's a good chance we are
working on it or will be, if there's
enough interest. Drop us a line!
Thanks for your interest in P-Ayr Products.
