Hot Car magazine S1 V8 build


Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to put this but way back in the early '80s, Hot Car magazine ran a series of articles on putting a V8 into a Series 1. I've got them somewhere but they are at my parent's house and my dad could feature on one of those hoarder programmes. Even if he knew exactly where they were, I'd need the help of International Rescue and their Mole to extract them.

It's a long shot, but can anybody tell me the relevant month/year is that the articles were published?

Sorry I didn't see this thread. The vehicle is my Land Rover!

I have the three copies, Two are build information the other just a photo session.

The last copy was April 1980 the others slightly earlier, I will have to dig them out later tonight.


The guy on the left is Pete Robain who built it based on a vehicle owned by a mutual friend.
