The Rover V8 ( Rover bought the Buick V8) eventually was produced as a
5.0 Liter engine. Not too shabby with up to 340 hp (factory)
The engine had a very good run, being manufactured through from
1960- 2006.

After Ford took over, the Rover V8 engines got phased out in favor of either an AJ8 or ford mod engine.
Automotive Machining, cylinder head rebuilding, engine building. Can't seem to quit #-o

MG, Triumph, Morgan all used the Buick-based V-8.

Jensen used Mopar big blocks--383, 440, 440+6.

Of course, there were the Sunbeam Tigers with SBF power, but those were engine-ed by Jensen, the way Shelby did the Cobras.
Bristol also used Mopar engines, sometimes with a turbo hung on top for extra grins.

Old thread, but still interesting to me.

My neighbor has a Jensen Interceptor in his garage with 440 MOPAR/4-speed in it.

Never drives it, just sits. I think he once said that its carb. needed worked on and it would be good to go.
