Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

But the again the side slots in the bulkhead are not FF, nor the rearmost centertubes. Your assumption of a bitsa is pretty much it then?

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

Thr grommeted hole in the footwell is for access to remove/refit the RH rearmost sparkplug. On the FF the engine sits a bit to the right so the LH grommet is not needed. The Mk 1 Int has the grommet on both sides.

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

John, my guess is somebody with big feet and shoesize to match tried sitting in the back :) And as short as legroom is sitting in a twisted position revealed a narrow footwell as well. The only case of a manufacturer ignoring anything like that is the story about an early customer for the series 1 X...

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

I must admit it looks more and more tempting :mrgreen: Now, if somebody would take my 541 project off my hands...... (Beyond loads of detective work across four countries to establish the true identity and get paperwork for it the only thing done has been to collect hard to find parts. When I get ar...

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

Looking at the latest pics I am even more convinced the chassis with parts in front of the bulkhead is an FF item grafted onto the rest. The front bulkhead is C-V8. The upper part i. e. 10cm above floor of the rear bulkhead may be C-V8 as well. The lower part from front bulkhead and all the way to t...

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

The recreation chassis as shown in the ad at the start here does look more like a C-V8 chassis modified with FF tubes, does any C-V8 experts here recognise the side view of the bulkhead? In particular the horizontal slot, none of my FFs had/have these while the cutaway from The Motor October 10 1962...

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

One more round in the hamster wheel :lol: Ron said it was a modified C-V8 chassis. So take a rotten such, graft FF tubes into the sides, cut floor to accommodate the transfer box an you are there. In front of the bulkhead copy FF. Whether that is what Jensen did instead of starting with a 541S chass...

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

Going by Ron's statement the actual chassis is C-V8 so paperwork, maybe some bits and possibly the front subframe off an FF.

Re: 1969 Mk1 FF-R supercharged

They say the R is the only one that still delivers on the dream. I am sure it is nice but the original delivers as far as I am concerned. For all practical purposes I used 053 as a daily driver for something like five years, year round. By choice. It delivered.

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

So with Ron's statement on the recreation being based on a C-V8 chassis it is most likely the C-V8 donating the body actually provided all the bits that are in common with the FF. Does that help you in identifying the donor John?

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

So the recreation based on a C-V8 chassis could be close to the original then? Unless of course the mule was 541S based.

Re: C-V8 FF Recreation

And that means we have two sources for the existence of the mule, which was a bodyless chassis.

So the chassis used for the roadgoing prototype could be a purpose built variation on the Interceptor chassis or based on the spare 1122.
