Hey there,
I've owned a few British cars over the years. Just found a 1958 Berkeley ES328, yes I know it's tiny but I can't help wanting to put a V8 in it. I have a complete shop that I do vintage motorcycle restorations and custom race bikes, I have a racing background cars and bikes and have run at Bonneville. With that said I'll start a project thread, looking forward to being here.

Welcome here!
They are a very small car. With your background bike restorations and race bikes, would an inline 4 motorcycle engine be a better fit?

I'd never heard of a Berkley ES238 till your post. Then this '57 one popped up on barn finds today [barnfinds.com])

Motorcycle V4 does sound cool if someone makes something that'd give you a reverse gear.
