Just found a pink Lodge spark plug in an old Seagull outboard motor that I'm trying to resurect...
I thought about the v8 swop but I really want it to have an old period British saloon car racer look rather than a hotrod look , so its the triple carb wide steel wheels look for now .
LOL Lodge plugs thats a blast from the past I spent part of my childhood in Rugby, Thats where Lodge Plugs were made I think my Auntie worked there I still have a Lodge spitfire plug somewhere.
Car looks very original Good to see you are going the hotted up original engine route I still think a small block V8 would go lovely in there late model 302 roller motor converted to carb for a period correct look
just back from Blighty , bought a load of stuff from Kev in Kent , top man we spent three hrs chatting about mk 2,s & all the of the same people we know from 40 yrs of messing around with cars, bought myself a 6 branch manifold & triple carb setup along other with all the other bits n pieces I was looking for , he has more mk 2 spares than I,ve ever seen in one place if he does,nt have it probably does,nt exist. it was good to be back home for a bit got my Goodwood saloon car racing & big sports car racing fix ,spent time with family back to the real world now a couple of days to work out what time zone I,m in & then crack on with the zodiac . RAY A back in sf
going to be at the beaulie auto jumble Saturday , hoping to find some good rear light lenses , a speaker grille for the dash & a pair emblems for the rear window pillars .
Love it Ray, but as Neil says I'd be very tempted to put a small block Ford in it, especially over there.
thanks , I now have everything greased up & driven it around a little bit runs really smooth shift nice & easy ,talk about a coincidence my mate who bought the car 25+ yrs ago called me last week to let me know he still has the original air cleaner for it sitting on his shelf ! .
Looks Solid, Good project you have there
made some progress , buffed out the old original paint & cleaned up the chrome , got it running & driving good, got the original radio to work , could use a better speaker grille a washer pump for the dash & some decent rear light lenses , working towards replacing the front & rear screen gaskets since they came with the car dump the wheels &clean up the inside , found another old picture of my dad & me at the derby when his 58 highline was brand new .
Know what you mean Ray, Zephyrs ,Cresta`s seemed huge when I was young , but by todays cars even in the UK they are small , I was surprised when I compared the weight of the Cresta against a modern car , it weighed the same as a Ford Focus
