I hope it has a 5 speed! I just love these kind of cars. We used to build lots of cars like this back in the 60s. I think we did about a dozen small block Chevy/MG swaps, even did a Pontiac/ Jaguar swap. Those old English sports cars took a large chunk of cast iron, bored 4 holes in it for pistons and called it an engine. Even a large V8 weighed less. Did you know that the Jaguar independent rear end used lots of Ford F150 parts? I'd love to build something like the Factory Five Cobra, but there is no place I could drive it around here. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
