If it was mine I would get rid of the BBC and get something smaller. What is the front end you have? There is very little room in there.

i have picked up a complete front suspension from a camaro drag car qa1 struts qa1 lower control arms mustang spindles brakes calipers and flex lines  all in a package  then i purchased a appleton steering rack  the camaro was running a bbc so i know the front springs should handle the weight and i own a tunnel ram square port 454 with all vintage race parts including magneto no reason to mess with a motor that makes 600 hp all day long  ah yes  a ls version would require more money and not keep some vintage feel  i will only change the cam out from a solid roller to a hydraulic roller  headers will have to be built  around chassis i have a walker rad now  i will post pics of parts as im working with them

 Funny you say that, Jim Lindsay's Pepper Mill Falcon did the same thing to me - 50 years ago at Niagara. Your Anglia looks like a great start already. Please keep us posted.

That's a really nice p.u. I seem to remember a red or orange Anglia in Grimsby, right near the corner that leads into the highschool, across from McDonalds.

Those things can be really tough to fit everything in and under without looking totally ****ing ridiculous. And most of the time you end up sitting damn near in the back seat by the time a v8's been crammed in there. If it were me (laugh all you want) I'd put a late model 4 banger in there, Mustang II front end and a light rear axle and a full interior. Maybe even put a snail on the motor. Make a nice "different" economical, reliable cruiser.

 I agree.. That's why I said earlier about the BBC. I would do like gkent  said,, sbc fits fine and Mll but it also needs to be narrowed too. Drivers seat in the back seat would takes away  from the appearance IMO

But it's your car

Build what you want and a big block Chev. is a neat way to go. The last car similar to this that I built was a 67 Chevy 11 with a 454 LS7 stuffed in . 10.80's at 126 footbreaking it [ no high rpm stall converter] and through the exhaust. Don't forget a 'cage' to help to keep it [ and you] together.

On a short wheelbase like your Anglia where you put the engine [ including how high in the chassis] is very important for proper balance. For a long time NHRA would not allow big blocks in Anglias just the longer wheelbase Prefect. I can't give you advise on engine placement but the info must be available somewhere. At 72 I'm not working on to much. My cars for the mostpart are done but I'm always trying to improve. One thing I have to do is fix a major leak and clunk in my 32 Ford 5 window. Its powered by a 54 Dodge hemi and I used one of my old 400 turbo race trans [reverse pattern manual shift only] and Ive ignored repairs to the transmission for to long. No big deal. This year is devoted to cruzing.

I think this subject has been beat to death somewhere here but you should make some inqueries with Insurance companies regarding street cars with cages. I agree - for a few reasons - that it should have one but your Insurer might not.Aside from that it's your car Scotty, build it the way you want.

Sounds like your going to have a lot of fun building your car. No doubt you will get a lot of help and suggestions on this site by some very knowlegable rodders . I have always liked the Anglia types ever since I first seen Jimmy Oddy at Niagara way back when. Build it your way and enjoy the build.
