Wallis and Steevens Road Roller Castings ****SOLD****

Post by joerom » Sun Jun 02, 2019 8:40 am

I have what I believe to be a full set of castings minus the rolls I am going to sell..This thing is in 4 1/2 scale and will be 52" long and would weigh 500 pounds when done...I do have rolled rear rings to make your own rolls and you can get discs on ebay to make them...The problem with this is that it takes 2 people to lift the castings I have, so there is no way I would ship this..To give you an idea of the size, the rear rolls in the pictures are a little over 16", so you can see the size of the castings..Drawings are also included...The last picture is what it would look like when finished and to give you an idea of what it is, if you did not know already....You would have to come and get them here in PA..I do not know what to ask for these castings, so please PM me if you have an interest..

That thing looks awesome! I’ve got enough projects to stay busy myself, but the prototype looks like a industrial era rat rod

I am in Berrysburg,PA 17005...I was told that if you wanted the cast iron rolls they sell, rather than making them, they would be $2500. shipped to the USA..So, I would imagine that with the weight and amount of these castings, it would also be expensive to purchase and have shipped..I am not looking to get rich, what do you think they are worth...….I just don't know what to ask...………..
