    RR Griffon from Miss Budweiser

    A friend came by with one of the Rolls Royce Griffons from the Miss Budweiser Unlimited Hydroplanes. The boat had three different Griffons before the turbine engine was installed. The Griffon had almost 1000 HP more than the Allison.

    I think this was engine number two as number three has the exhaust pipes. This engine is now in a office in Reno Nevada.
