Anybody know of Turbonique superchargers?
 
I have a liquid powered supercharger by turbonique and was wondering if anybody knows if this thing has any value. It hasn't been used.
- it more than doubles horsepower instantly with no lag
-Runs on liquid thermolene (no belts like a typical supercharger).
I know it is 60's era stuff but is kind of neat. If anybody has any info or knows if anybody is interested please let me know

Turbonique AP supercharger, rocket drag axle and microturbo thrust engine - The Tuners Group

Interesting. Reading for sure

Wow that is a good read.

Cool

That is one of the coolest reads I've seen in awhile.

Seems like it has some great value.

the tuner's group is a gold mine for great data, the guy who runs it afaik is well into engineering and aerodynamics, has helped me with 911 data before.

Would you post some pictures? It sure would be neat to see some current, color pics of it . . .

I'll pay you list price for it, but you have to kick in a jerry can of thermolene.

How about I get you some Propyl Nitrate and you make your own;)

according to the lil write up those things are pretty rare, might be able to get a pretty penny of some drag racer?

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately it wouldn't be put to use. I just wonder if it has any rare,unique, memorabilia value among the muscle car hot rodding crowd. This thing is 20-30 years before my time and don't know if it desireable(historical value) or a fancy paper weight. My father had a 1960 T-bird with a custom 427 and guess he wanted to put it in it.

Holy crap! Great read. 160mph in four seconds in the turbonique powered kart!?! The kart is way too small for the gonads you need to have to ride in that thing.

You may want to contact Craig Conley at Paradise Wheels. He is the go to guy for '60's period-correct Paxton superchargers, and I wouldn't be surprised if he knows about the Turboniques. He's in San Marcos at 760-744-2400.

Kevin Weidlich 08-17-2012 01:23 AM

Here are some crappy phone pics.
