    Period Pop modding

    Hoping to be buying/building a Pop/Anglia/Prefect towards the end of the year. This will be my first rod and while i have a background in classics this will be my first car pre 100e

    If I decide to go the building route I want to keep stockish looking (wheel upgrade etc) and a 60s period upgrades (crossflow, 105e brakes etc)

    At what point do I need to start worrying about the chassis?

    I intend to buy a reasonably good roadgoing stock Pop, put in the crossflow (prob 1300 to start) running gear and brakes. Will that suffice or will I need to strengthen the chassis?

    Noob question I know and probably asked a thousand times...

    Thanks for that.

    I will add that I would probably run a stock 1300 while sourcing a mild 1600 or building one. Not talking massive numbers here so thought the chassis would be ok as is (after checking it was in good order of course) but wanted to check on here.

    Cheers again

    others will add to this with more experience than i have with pops,but ive seen and worked on the chaasis and there pretty tough.

    good luck with whatever you do...

    I think this style is a good way to go?..

    I like that..

    Im thinking original paint, steel wheels (banded style???Wider either way and a subtle look about it to the trained eye would notice.

    Anyway im getting away from the purpose of the thread,

    How much work would the bulkhead need with putting in a crossflow? Same question with the tunnel?

    Hi
    I have a stock 53 Anglia and im in Norwich
    it is up for sale at present but this isn't a sales pitch as you say your plans are towards end of the year
    But you are very welcome to come and look at chassis, take measurements etc if it helps with your planning
    You might even get a mug of (black) coffee as well
    PM me on here if interested
    cheers

    That is a fantastic offer and would like to take you up on that. I will send a PM in a bit once ive cleaned away the tiles ive just smashed off the walls in the bathroom ( I hate DIY)

    Also think i recognise the car on your profile pic. Were you at the Norfolk Gala last year? I was there with the XROC ( i think you were on next stand along... If its the right car that is...)

    "jonh56" on here has just had a pop built using a crossflow, steel wheels and original looking paint. I'm pretty sure the motor fits in without too many issues, i'm guessing that depends on what front end you'd use though. He doesn't post on here too much but it may be worth a pm, John rowley who finished the car for him does everything how it should be done, would be useful for you to have a look at some photo's.
