I've been workin on a little project over the last few months and thought I'd let u see my progress so far!!
The Engine: -
Bought for the princely sum of 50 English Pounds!!! Bargian!! And delivered to the workshop for a tenner!!!
It's a 3.5ltr Rover V8 out of a Range Rover running twin SU carbs at the moment. Just need to get a starter motor from ebay for a few quid and then we can fire her up!!! !!!
The plan is to first of all measure up the engine bay and look at how much the bulkhead needs relieveing and then make up the front subframe once I've got a gearbox & bellhousing. Once that's done I can then look at mounting the rear axle and connecting the driveline. I'll be using a Ford Atlas axle cause then I can still use the 1.9 gti wheels!! LOL !!
Here's a pic of the new beasty!!
Still in need of a Rover LT77 5-speed gearbox
Rear Axle: -
Its from a Ford Capri 2.8i. Its also known as a Ford Atlas axle. Very stiff n sturdy, also the correct width tooo!!! Just need to make some longer wheel studs, n convert the rear drums to discs.
Here is a link to the online photo album wiv all the pics so far!!
