Default Re: V-8 60 Guys

Great to see so much 60hp interest, I will bookmark this thread in case I need to ask you gents for help. My English 35 Coupe had the 15 stud originally (#738) but it was changed to a factroy recon tin-side before the War. I believe the 15 stud is rare because most of them failed and were exchanged. Ian NZ, do you know of one that is running?

I've only done about 200 miles and not too fast as it's still running in after rebuild, but I am looking for the next gear when I get to 40mph. Looks like there isn't room for an o/d without modifying the trans tunnel. Given that it's a coupe and will usually be carrying just 2 of us, would it pull a stock 4.11 rear end?

Here it is outside the house where it lived from 1935 to 1978.
