been helping tom with the a40 build up over the last 10 months and really grown to like these small farinas,

which as im sure you all know leads on to thoughts of what else can we do................

so been thinking id like to put together a strip only car, british from the 60s. that would be built per its period, with what was availible back then, im temted to do another a40 farina, maybe with a tuned a series on methanol, ladder bars etc, but really would like something really unusual that just isnt around anymore.
so what ya reck?? any manufacturer, 60s or early 70s, 50s even i guess, just small and brit :D

Wolseley 1500 or Riley 1.5?

Same suspension as a Minor but 1.5 B-series power so more oomph potential than an A-series, thinking 1.8 MGB transplant for starters.... :smoke:
