British V8 Photo Galleries

Engine Swaps (a.k.a. "conversions", "transplants", "swops", etc.)

Our huge engine swap gallery is sorted by MAKE, then MODEL, then OWNER'S NAME. The six main sections are:

  1. MG sports cars
  2. Triumph sports cars
  3. Austin Healey sports cars
  4. Sunbeam sports cars,  and
  5. other British carmakers,  and
  6. British race cars.

Factory Built V8-Powered British Sports Cars

BritishV8 is also working to document the history and design of factory-produced V8-powered British sports cars. We already have The Internet's Biggest Library of Info on MG's "MGB GT V8" Model, and we're planning to similarly present other production V8 models going forward.



Additional Gallery Sections Will Be Added Too...
