Just picked on of these up. Surprisingly similar to my 240z.

 

2.5l straight 6, side drafts, 4 speed, 2 seater with rear cargo/deck.

 

Just british, uglier, fiberglass and coilovers

In all honesty, I've had the 240 and 260z for a couple years and never really played with them. My 510 has an Sr so this thing is the extent of my side draft in line 6 knowledge, but it looks very similar.

 

That's the 2.5l triumph motor out of a TR6. Carbs are strombergs :/ (for now)

Looks way more ugly parked next to that Lotus. There's something cool about is oddness, that's kinda the tvr way though.

They actually look great from behind. But I agree the smashed catfish look on the front isn't great.

 

Very fun though from the little I've driven it. Sounds pretty nice too

that BAT one is quite a bit nicer than mine.

 

I'd actually love to build a little 2.0 ford. The power coming out of the triumph isn't that great. But you don't need much in such a small car. I'll keep it all original as long as everything works. Seems most of them have been molested for better or worse.
