As some of you will know I have been trying to nail a 100e together with rover V8 power for many years, I have finally faced facts that i havent got the time or skill to build what i really want.
So with the help of one well known Rod shop down south were nailing together my ultimate 100e.
Gonna be Gasser through and through....... all Mygasser's fault for inspiring me with his build!
Spec at the minute as follows;
8 point cage with rail connectors and added stiffening to the underside.
Straight front axle on leaf springs.
9" LSD rear axle on ladder bars and coilovers.
Ford 302 to start (ultimately going for a sorted 347) backed up by a manual valve body C4.
My dodgy trans tunnel and bulkhead is also coming out to be replaced with something a little more professional.
Fenderwell headers with solinoids so i can open up the headers at the flick of a switch.
Wheels 8.5" 5 spokes out back and 4.5" rocket launchers up front.
Disc brakes all round running a modded escort mII Willwood pedal box
Stripped out interior with a couple of Jaz buckets and harnesses, weve got a few other tricks up our sleeve also.
Tinted Plexiglass windows colour TBC.
Car name im still working on but we have a few ideas.
Should be out back end of the year, was aiming for hotrod drags but thats now looking doubtful because I keep upping the spec
Will be selling everything were not using, rover V8, BW35 gearbox, 105e axle, old ford suspension Ect as it become available to help fund the build.
Few pics below
Original concept, will probably go a little lower out back to give a slightly more nose up attitude.
Wheels and tyres
Interior stripped out
Dash now being fabricated
More pics and updates as i get them.
