V8 510s

On forums you get the occasionally post asking whether putting a V8 into a 510 is a good idea. Generally that doesn’t go down well with most people citing poor weight distribution, space, etc. Well here are two examples of completed ones:

From Australia, this one has a Ford 351 Windsor and a T88 turbo. Obviously built for burnouts.

This one with an LS1 from the US. Built for drifting.

Any others?

    How about a Ford 5.0 V8 Datsun 4 dr that handles? It can be done and it is much fun!

    Here are some links to images of the car with interior and mechanicals. The car was in the Dime Quarterly as a reader’s ride some time ago and is still on their website last time I looked.

    The car was built just to PO Porsche and BMW owners and the autocross thing was to get it to handle properly. After about 3 years of changing springs, settings, and swaybars, the thing does scoot!
    Enjoy,
