Welcome Graham, thank you for your introduction! :mrgreen:

Into a Valiant coupe....please don't. Consider a British vehicle instead, Triumph or Sunbeam? Resale will be next to nothing if you ever have/want to sell....Chrysler guys would not buy, general classic car community will not because Chrysler body. Chrysler replacement parts are notoriously known to be very expensive. Besides, Valiant Coupe's (Charger/Barracudas) are expensive and hard to come by. Maybe fit the Rover V into a Jaguar XJ for a nice bruiser?

My R1.75....

Graham, I fully agree with Ters.
Another option is an MGB, the 3.5 fits well into it and lots of conversion parts are available online.
