Nice and I am really envious of that Aquaplane intake manifold. Will be interesting to see the final price.

Certainly isn't getting high bids at the moment and I would remove that inlet/carb setup, I doubt that the engine benefits from it.

$6125 in real money.

A bit high considering the 'needs' but in the ballpark.

Only 'needs' I saw was trafficators. Seems like a pretty low price to me for a nice example.

Needs passenger side glass, 'needs' water pump, 'needs' the SUs/manifold replaced with original parts

Actually it is not as bad as it sounds. They say the trafficators only need to be connected to work again. The passenger window glass seems to be okay in the photo, only the lift or handle is broken so thatís an easy fix on a car like this. The twin carb setup looks to be from Aquaplane and would be regarded as a useful and desirable period modification. These cars operate well on their thermo-siphon cooling system, if it had the optional heater it would need the external water pump otherwise itís good to go. My own reservation about this car is the fact that itís right hand drive. Here is a bit on Aquaplane https://www.ford-aquaplane.co.uk/

Sorry, forgot to mention the RHD as a 'need" (for me at least).

Yes, I know all the arguments about driving wrong hand cars having done so for years - with ease- but I just prefer my steering wheel to be on the same side for ALL my cars, whichever country/continent I am in.

While they say that the trafficators only need to be hooked up, my experience with both my Prefects trafficators is that they required a lot more work to get them working properly and consistently - and if it was a simple hookup why not just do it?

I never had cooling issues with the thermo engines but did fit a pump, piece of cake and peace of mind.

Any idea just how much more oomph the aquaplane?SUs gave?

I don't have my old books with me here in Vancouver so I can't quote figures on the actual performance increase? I seem to remember it is not huge but it is worthwhile on these under performing cars, even when I drive my more powerful 100e Anglia around I sometime struggle not to hold up other motorists.

My book doesn't mention BHP but says it dropped 0-50 to 28.7 from from 38.1. Hmmm. 30-50 went from 35.7 to 20.7, a respectable increase in performance, if that word even applies.

That was on a 993cc, not 1172cc.

I don't have it at hand right now but I remember my owners manual says 0-50 in about 29 seconds. I'm a little surprised that the dual carbs makes the differences stated above but it is a cool period enhancement. And I agree on the RHD situation. I know some folks actually prefer that in LBCs but I would rather stick to LHD and all my cars the same. I understand that does affect the value this side of the pond too. Oh, and I wouldn't even think about selling my '48 for that price and it has a way to go to be in that condition. It is LHD though.
