Atkinson Cycle Engine value

I acquired a Gingery Atkinson Cycle engine years ago but I think I'm going to part company with it now. The problem is, I haven't got a clue what it's fair value is. Any clues?

I committed it to a solid model about 8 years ago....that's the pic I'm attaching. Most of it is assembled (the guy I bought it from ran it often at shows), but it needs the fuel tank finished, and some other minor things assembled...like lubricator, ignition coil, display box.

Hello all
I haven't got a clue what it's worth but how does it get the spark to happen? Would have the plans for the ignition side of things?
Cheers Scott

Sorry for the delay in response! If you zoom in and look on the main shaft near the flywheel, you’ll see a rectangular plate with a set of automotive points mounted. Inside the base is a regular automotive coil. That’s it!
