    Pro Jag "Mega B" MGB GT V12 ...... the evolution!

    As some - older- people on here will know, I built a BGT in 1988/89 and raced it in the Street Machine and Custom Car Rover V8 Challenge for 5 years. I then sold it to Bob and Ollie Owen who raced it in 1994 and again in 1996. Since then it has disappeared..........
    I found that I missed the car and so if I cannot buy it back - I will make a new version instead!
    So I am now going to steadily acquire the bits needed and will post up progress as and when.
    (I have another project car (Alfa Romeo Sprint) that needs completing and selling though before I can really start on the BGT fabrication.)
    Here are some pics of the original car.

    And this is the start of the new build.....



    The plan is to make the new chassis a bit lighter and more sophisticated, the body will have a steel outline and roof but with fibreglass doors and tailgate to make it around 1600 lbs (- the original was 1800lbs as there was a minimum wieight of 1650 in Pro Rover.) I will be using a reasonable RV8 ideally 4.2 or 4.5 rather than the 3.5 of the original. (But if anyone has a nice alloy block SBC to fit later on....)
    I shall use it as a RWYB warrior and garage candy rather than full on modern spec racing.

    Thanks for the positive responses - I've been drawing up some rough ideas for the chassis and it will need about 60 foot (20m) of round tube and 40 foot (13m) of square box section.

    I know you say that you only plan on RWYB but have you considered building to an SFI spec either 'just in case' or to help with any resale in the distant future?
