The Gull retains its original de Havilland Gipsy Six, Series 1 engine, maintained in pristine condition. First developed by the de Havilland Aircraft Company in 1934, these high performance six cylinder, 200 hp engines powered many of the racing and record-breaking aircraft of the 1930s.

The Percival Gull monoplane is currently on show in the Hall at the National Museum of Australia.
