Default "Fisher Red Shift .60" Ever hear of this one?

I am negoiating an estate buy out and the gentleman indicated he had one of these engines... after clarifying twice to make sure I understood exactly what he was saying over the phone, the engine in question is a "Fisher Red Shift .60". My research materials came up with goose eggs on this engine. Anyone EVER hear of this engine, or do I need to call him again and clarify the name once more?[sm=confused.gif][sm=confused.gif][sm=confused.gif]

Many thanks,
GPB

British motor, only a very limited production. Nicely made and definitely a good collectable piece. I can't give you a price as i can't remember it but the motor was reviewed by Peter Chinn in M.A.N in the late 60's early 70's in his foreign news report section of the Mag. That was of course when M.A.N. was worth spending your money to buy it.
