Dave57210 Oh yes - good ol' British engineering. At one point I owned (briefly) a '57 MGA, which blew its engine, at idle, sitting in the driveway. May have been a million reasons from previous abuse B4 I got it, but still......

Well, you know what they say about British engineering....

My buddy had an MGB GT....
He blew up the 4-cylinder, so we put a Buick V-6 in it
Went like stink until the torque ripped the transmission mount out of the floor

Budd thought about it and rebuilt the XT-Bird into the XR-400 and pitched it to AMC. AMC passed also. so it never happened. Two things make this endever interesting. First on is that a outside company tried to sell their concept to two large Auto Co.s and secondly had either company bought into the design they would have in all purposes had the first "Pony Car" years before the Mustang.

boothboy Nope not Studebaker, or Nash. This was designed and built in the USA. No Ghia influence.
