I've started stripping off the wings and pulling the engine to make way for a small chevy v8 mated to an AX15 5 speed with .79 5th gear ratio,mated to the land rover transfer box.
More pictures to come.

It will be a daily driver , long distance expedition ,and green laning .
SBC 283C
320ft lb torque at 3000rpm
Maximum Brake Horsepower: w/4-barrel carb: 240 @ 4800 RPM
Should get 25mpg hway with the .79 5th and 3.54 differentials from a late 80's rover
The differential pumpkins fit into the 1957 series 1

Enjoy it! I'll bet it'll be great to get around in when you finish.
