Yes proper engine and vitesse box, this was my everyday car and my red 3500s was my best non modified one.
Doesn't show on this picture the vitesse wheels.
Really miss it, was written off by a drug driver.
Managed to keep all the best bits though.

note there is a growing push on question of mot free road tax that now is we have point being given by DVLA ? for modifications ( unless fitted prior to a certain date) .so for example a different engine.. fuel injection etc can add up enough points to fail gaining an historic car acceptance ..needing MOT forever ..tax too then become an issue.
even changing gearbox can add points. I did look at fuel injection conversion kit at NEC. sadly it was too expensive for my shallow pockets to fit so I consoled myself with knowing I wont have to worry about getting too many 'points'.

I wonder how these so called experts are going to inforce that points system, they would have to be p6 specialists / worked at the factory.

The points system has been in place for about 30 years, it's not new. Fuel injection wont lose the engine point, a different engine of the same type won't lose the point either.
