A quick update for those of you who have taken an interest so far.

Project is still going ahead and the work will be carried out in Blackpool. Project has moved from something along the lines of a semi replica look-a-like project, to a complete rebuild of the original car. This follows the discovery of all the items I didn't previously have which have now become available - and we are talking all original parts. I still don't have the engine, but based on progress so far even that may also be possible! We shall see!

The most important thing at this point is to say a huge thankyou to Richard Thorpe who has sacrificed a considerable amount of time to ensure that we end up with another speed 12 on the road. If your considering a TVR project or race car/LS conversion then Richard is the man to see, providing of course that he can fit you in. His place is packed full of work at the moment. Top bloke, excellent project manager and general TVR guru.

Anyhow, this project will take a considerable period of time to complete and if your interested I'll post something up at key stages.

I do hope you manage to get an engine. Anything else in there just wouldn't be the same. How many Speed 12 running engines were made? 4 or 5? Or was it more?

Graham, keep the instalments coming, I'm really interested to see how this progresses.

I saw your Cerb at Chatsworth (looked lovely) but unfortunaly you weren't with it so I couldn't say "hello"

Perhaps we should put our PH names on the cars on the day??

Three to my knowledge, but unfortunately, there is so much crap written about the S12 and it's variants that it is difficult to see the wood for the trees.

The picture is a very crude effort between me, Stainless Steve and Jagdpanther knocked together about a year ago. The rebuild is due to start anytime soon, so it will be some time before I have anything more interesting to report.

This sounds fantastic.

If you cannot get a SP12 engine what would be the plan for a power plant? Would mating two SP6's to a custom bottom end & casing be out of the question?

If you've got time G1AAB, it'd be nice for you to give us a run down of what you have parts wise etc, and what the 'general' plan of attack is.

If you wouldn't mind?
