Hi Royston,

This engine is from a Hillman Minx series VI. This block is indeed a 1725 cc engine but with a cast iron cylinder head.

Regards,

Peter

Thanks for Info Peter, it is the engine from the convertible currently for sale on carandclassic near Crowborough. I've been to view and am quite keen to become its new owner ! We will see.
see you at National
