Christopher Cox's project - Colin

 (Click pictures for full size)

I bought the car off of eBay for 27.01, tax exempt with V5 of course, it had a good bonnet roof and rear but the floor and sills were shot but this did not matter as I was going to cut out the floor anyway.

After this I started to collect the parts I would need to build my new car. This V8 from a Rover P6 has been rebuilt by the previous owner.

Then a jag rear with lsd from a friend of the bloke I bought the car from. Converted to ford 4-stud nightmare!

   

MGB front clip, which I bought from the same bloke I got the V8 from, then converted it to coil over and made it 4 wider and moved steering gear brackets.

   

Here it is painted.

   

I made and pressure tested a small petrol tank with Talbot horizon fuel sender to fit under 80 litre LPG gas tank.

   

I modified a Morris clock with a mini fuel gauge and added low fuel light and indicator light.

I purchased a fibre glass flip front off eBay. I also picked up some metro seats, steering column, servo, pedal box and so on.

 

And now I have started the not so small task of steel reuniting!

 

 

To be continued....

 

Christopher Cox.
