Default Austin A40 Pickup Rat

How many guys/girls on this forum have ratted a Austin A40 Pickup?
If so please post some pics, I need some ideas on what to do with mine.
Don't want to copy them, just to see what works and what doesn't.
Any suggestions with regards to mods on the standard frame?
I will be going the route of a Jaguar XJ6 front and rear suspensions, Mazda RX8 tranny and a old Ford Essex 3.0 V6 uprated version for power. what you think?

Looks good 30SX. I like the patina on the cab, mine has a way to go, been painted about seven or eight times.

Keep them coming guys

We didn't get many of those in the US, even fewer of them left, so they are pretty rare. They do look good as a gasser, that's how many of them ended up here.
