Rover V8 rebuild & auto gearbox for a Cobra kit car

Jan Harris brought her Cobra kit car to us with a view to getting it back on the road. Built by her late husband it has sentimental value and Jan wanted to drive it again. The engine was tired and required a rebuild. On top of that Jan wanted to convert it from a 4 speed to an automatic, fit a removable steering boss and get it MOT’s. A Borg Warner 35 auto box went in with relative ease, the only real modification was to the prop shaft which had to be shortened. Once we knew the gearbox worked we pulled the engine. The block went to be re-bored and the crankshaft got a grind. The engine was rebuilt with new parts where needed to a near standard specification. Its all back together now except for a sticky brake caliper.
