That's a nice addition, my first thought on seeing the motor and gearbox was early Lotus/Coventry Climax.

As it's a bored out version of the Hillman Imp engine it is pretty much a 40hp Coventry...

Oh dear, three hours just to end up parked back at home with no more range than you started with when all you wanted to do was 'fill up' ready for a long drive?

No more progress on the Speedster to report, I'm afraid as other hobbies/projects/work/ family stuff have all taken precedence these last few months.

Very nice and well done!
