OK forget the diesel/LPG option. How do you get these puppies in a 603

Unhappy

Greg, were you thinking of spending $53,000 plus shipping, duty, and VAT before getting your drivetrain components to a workshop in the UK. Then presumably a few more tens of thousands on fitting those and uprating everything else on the car to suit ??

Certainly was not , even with a lottery win !. I happen to be quite fond of the ratty diesels because of the awesome torque delivery. Big HP figures don't really do it for me.

Will give you a bell soon.

PS anyone got a spare torqueflite ? broken one of mine :-( Wont have reverse

Given the amount of advice you given us over the years (particularly on the old BEEF mail list), I have no problems with you mentioning your business, especially when it's relevant to the discussion.

Thanks for putting that up Kevin, I had found the site earlier by guesswork. They are an amazing product. Surely a package would be possible for a Bristol?

I have just parted with my 110 4cab and one of these looks like fun. Also worth looking for on youtube , they corner like they stink
