    Another route to go is make up a complete new chassis, using the car as a guide, that way you can use whatever suspension, engine and driveline you want without botching up your nice Y.
    Your options then become unlimited, and not as hard as it first may seem.
    ....and you might be able to do it with one donor car ??

    Or use a later Ford Pop 1172 engine and box with all the Aquaplane gear!

    Is it possible to retro fit an MX5 with carbs? The engine would look brilliant with a pair of SUs. What do they have in the way of ignition? I'm guessing not a distributor.

    looks like a coil pack so no dizzy. ford edis4 module and coil pack it is then. tuck the coil pack under the carbs with plug leads coming up as if from a dizzy and the deception's complete.
    talking of carbs.....https://danstengineering.co.uk/Mk1-M...mm-starter-kit
