The Holden Grey motor is often referred to as the Holden side plate. The engine earned its name as they were painted grey from the factory. They came in 2 sizes, 138ci and 132ci. More engineering and after market modifications have gone into this engine than any other engine in Australian automotive history.

Norman Super Charger for sale

20:27 Posted by GreyFC No comments
It's not often you see such an exquisite piece of Australian automotive history for sale, but thats what we are seeing right now on eBay.

A genuine Type 65 Norman super charger is for sale on eBay with a starting bid of $5500.  It's missing a few bits buts it's a fine piece of speed equipment.

I have seen some pictures ( I will try dig them up ) of a perfect condition and complete Type 65 that sold 5 years ago for $8500.  It was by an unknown buyer and many people thought it was a fake bit, but it wasn't it was real and the cash changed hands.

This goes to show the price is what someone is willing to pay at the time.

I have personally seen very few Norman super chargers change hands ( only 2 Type 65s ) and they are never cheap.

They are period correct for the Holden grey motor.
