Re: CKD South African built Sunbeam Tiger

Looking at the engine from the passenger side of the car the number will be on a flat horizontal section at the rear of the block at the rear of the head at the place where the bellhousing is bolted on. Hope that makes sense.

Re: Unfinished projects for sale

That is correct, the numbers on the tags should match the chassis number stamp and the engine stamp, but if you would prefer to not post up publicly you can send interested parties a private message with the pictures.

Re: CKD South African built Sunbeam Tiger

Hi, nice Tiger.
Does the engine number have BG before the 386? If not it won't be a Perana engine.
I think new imported unstamped engines were given a number by the Traffic Department but I think there was a logo included.

Re: Ford Capri Build

Hi, sounds like you have a lot of work to do, I'm sure there will be guys here to assist you. Unfortunately I'm in the UK so can't do much for you.
It will be useful to post some pics of the work required on the body so people have an idea what you need doing.
