V8 in 100e

Recommended Posts

Evening all, been toying with this for a while now, think the time has come to go v8, don't know why but I have wanted something with a v8 since I was a nippa, as I love my 1960 100e pop I thought why not do it to that!

Has anyone on here done this already? If yes then apologies for not seeing the posts, I would just like a bit of help with what front end to run & what are my choices for rear axle?

I'm not building it pro street, bit more of a sleeper really so want to keep it all tucked in on reverse banded steels!

 

Hope some of you can shed so light on this for me.

 

Many thanks

I've got a 318 Mopar in my 100e. It had capri front legs and an escort crossmember. The engine is chassis mounted. At the rear it has a narrowed mustang axle, 4 linked and panhard rod on coil overs.

That sounds pretty neat, would love to see it! Would love to use a mustang rear on mine but trying to build on a budget! In a few years I will upgrade all the bits I am having to scrimp on now!

 

Cheers

For a 100e I would use a rover v8 since they're light and cheap or a small block Chevy as they are small in comparison to a mopar/Ford and cheaper to build than just about anything! Rear axle, Volvo, they are cheep, about £100 I saw one on rods n sods for and they are good for about 400bhp! Hope this helps.
