nice couple fellas racing the jag, had a 350 fitted and the pair of them had spent all night fitting the motor to race the next day only to blow the rear crank seal on their first run ....they did blow the doors of that rover though :sniff:

There was another one with those type of wheels , built by Overfinch(Schuler Presses) with Chevy 350 and Range Rover drivetrain ......Built for the Manager / owner of Laura Ashley Ltd
It might have been really built by Alvin Smith (RR racer)
