I'm doing a history of Scripps-Booth automobiles.
In 1929 Mr. Booth built a prototype "cycle car" with an "all aluminum, 35 hp, 4 cylinder (2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches) engine, with 4 OH valves per
cylinder, OH camshaft, capable of 6,000 rpm. [It was] water-cooled, [with] pump circulation, [and had an] electric starter" according to Mr.
Booth's notes.

It was later described, in the "Standard`Catalog of American Cars" as a "Van Blerck marine engine."

Can you provide a model name and any additional details?
