I don’t think I’ve seen an RS Ace Hawk built! Fabulous! Second only to fitting a Ford Zephyr engine, the Triumph is a great choice!
Best wishes for the build, and very selfishly, I hope you retire to the UK so we have a chance to see it finished! 😎

Nik,

Thanks for the welcome!

I should know where I am retiring to within the next few months, meanwhile I will stay in the sandpit!

There are many advantages in going to the US. SVA is irrelevant and therefore, I will only have to build once! :)

Triumph and MG Parts are relatively easy to come by and the Ace, will compliment my ERA289FIA, which is currently being manufactured in Connecticut.

My 1963 - 289 5 Bolt HIPO is already built, and ready to install when it arrives. Will finish that before I get the Ace :wink:

Simon the last thing you will need is heated seats when your car is left out in the sun for a couple of hours at a meeting or show bearing in mind we normally drive our cars when the weather is more summery.

Peter,

Thanks for the welcome. I will undoubtably have many stupid questions to ask.

Cheers
