    I have a Kennedy Bellhousing for sale. It is a 4 1/2 in aluminum bellhousing that will mate a SBF to a ZF/RBT Transmission. Johann said it would work for a Pantera in addition to a GT40. I ran into some clearance issues with my CAV and had to put a quicktime in the car. Pic shows mounted to...

    A number of Gulf cars had a large light (about the size of the rear tail lights) that came off a Lancaster bomber (so I was told). Is there a source for these lights?

    Assembly of CAV #170

    I chose to call this an "assembly" because I'm just not making the build commitment that many in this section do. I'm in awe of the ingenuity and persistence of some of the people on this thread. Although I have the tools and know how to build a car, I learned my lesson with a 1967 Triumph...
