hi,

Just an idle though ... would it contravene any Law of Nature, to remove the body from a Triumph Mayflower?

I have seen several modified Mayflower saloons with alternative engines and interiors.  I have read that the chassis and suspension formed the basis for the TR2.

What is your aim?

Spoiling a good body would be a shame.

I was under the impression that the Mayflower was unitary construction and had no chassis. Please correct me if I am wrong which has been known many many times

You are correct John - Just looked at a Motor Trader service supplement I have it clearly says the car had an integral chassis.

How about dropping a TR motor (4 cylinder) and making an early 'Vitesse' type car.
Plus appropriate other mods to make it safe.
Probably been done already but would be fun.
