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

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

Seems like it has some great value.

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

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.
