Yes, a Hawk car. Not mine unfortunately... A local collector. One of about 60 odd cars he owns.

Finished fabricating the new engine mounts and now doing the new suspension pickup points (to cope with the track of the Alfa drive line). The gearshift.... Lot of head scratching atm: but forming a plan.

Cool! yea i've been looking at the gearshift also, my current plan is to machine a new top plate for the gear shift mechanism on top of the gbox, so i can spin it around 90 deg and have the cables coming in from the other direction, rather than add additional linkages. unfortunately there is a missing spline in the selector fork which will need to be relieved  and a new hole for the locating pin drilled, and that shaft looks very very hard

Hi Colin and Luke
Both are amazing builds incorporating the 3.2 litre Busso V6 engine transplants and thanks for sharing in the journey.  Not sure if you have seen this post on the AlfaBB  (15 Pages), which is a similar build and includes the gearbox and associated shifter options/mods;

Yes, I remember following his amazing build. He ended up with a Toyota MR2 box in it as he could not get the Alfa boxes to hold together. He died a couple of years ago... there were no details how.

The engine and gearbox I am using is from a 916 GTV with a cable shifter... similar box, different shift mechanism. I have a bit of a plan.

Roll cage Done!
https://youtu.be/I729_-ItBeA

Thank God, a proper cage install!

Sorry, I have just seen SO many Alfa Track cars up here that have the lower forward mount of the cage to a pad on the floor instead of the sill area. Makes me cringe every time I picture one sliding of the track into the muddy infield, catching on the grass, flipping up and come crashing down on its roof, punching the mounting pad clean through the flimsy 40 year old floor.

Rant off.   :)
