I’m slowly putting together a modest display of motors. And am wondering if anyone has a Ford Flathead V8 they’d be willing to trade for a Jaguar V12?

Now that is an intersting topic.  I have a GT-6 engine I would trade for bag of chips or anything else that weighs less than a GT-6 engine. It is left over from our GT-6 project and now that I have an Elan, my fantasy of building another Spit-6 has faded.

I have a Morris Mini... 800-something? Out of a '64 Mini. Would need worked over.

Frenchy, I don't have an engine, but I do have a bellhousing from a '48 Ford truck that was a flathead V8, if that does anything for you.

Sorry,  life got in the way of hobbies. A local restorer traded his modified 48 Flathead display engine on a stand for  my partially cleaned V12. He sends me pictures whenever he gets something polished or powder painted. 

When everything is shined or ready I’m assembling it for him.  He’s buying new stainless steel fasteners and really going all out.   Including a set of Weber’s
