    Shame that powers-that-be in ACTC don't like V8s ...

    Never actually seen a V8 in a Roadster, seems to fit well!
    - 9th Custodian of JRR 929D, the Triumph Vitesse based special Paul Moorehouse built prior to the Triumph based Roadster kits.
    - 8th owner of Roadster chassis number 2395. Kit manufactured 1983, first registered in 1987. Now owned by Barry!
    - Builder of chassis number 2325 (PKK 989M) in the mid 80's. Now owned by Eric & Lynne in the NE of England.

    Have a friend who fitted one to a Hybrid - in place of a Triumph 6.

    But ACTC don't like it - and put him in Class 8.

    When first listed > No photos.

    Now has photos and looks quite rough and incomplete. And expensive?

    SD1 rocker covers > if it was an earlier high comp V8 it would be better [they were 10.5:1 CR and allegedly produced about 185bhp on SUs.]
