    100e gasser

    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



    Cage in



    Dash now being fabricated




    More pics and updates as i get them.

    Can't wait to see this finished.

    If you can't be an example, be a warning.

    Thanks for the comments guys,

    The rover V8 was coming out today, asked them to go through it and get it running first though so i can sell it knowing its a good engine.

    So excited about this build Im like a big kid...... Roll on 302ci and first start up
    Changing the plan a day at a time.

    If it looks anything like your rendering, it should be a real tuff cookie.
