Thanks Fla,

It's a 1967 Triumph TR4.
The frame... I'll say I "re-did" the frame myself.
Here's a couple before and after shots to save me a LOT of typing.

These aren't the best pics - they were more for reference than show.

GREAT looking hotrod !!
A project I'll be starting on soon is a '59 English Hilman. We'll be stuffing it with a pumped up 2.3 Ford 4banger. A cute little street car and daily driver for my buddie's wife. Seeing what you did using the stock front suspension is great intel for our project as we were looking into using a Heidt's setup.

I think the tow hitch hanging off the back of the car would look odd though :shock:

Heidt's would be the way to go (IMHO). I did all this with raw steel stock, probably took me close to 120 hours+. I wished I had the resources at the time to use a pre-fab'd set-up.

In regards to your 2.3 - it just so happens I have a turbo intake taking up space in my attic. I can't remember if it's for a 2.0 liter or 2.3, but is set up for a garret T-3 and a Holley 2 bbl. lemme know if you're interested.

Would love to see some pix of the '59 Hillman. - that thing should be cool.

Thanks! It's a Steve Vance motor. I pulled it out last Thursday night. ( This pic is from last December.) Adding a fogger to it. Funds are limited this year so it's only gonna be 1 stage.
I sold the Rabbit and my next truck will be almost 900lbs lighter than the old Rabbit. Can't wait to get it going.

Notice the WIX on the motor and on the shelf on the left. NO FRAM IN MY SHOP BOYS!!
