Hello all. I am new to this forum. I have a 1968 XKE FHC. It is in fair shape, no motor or trans, I want to put a supercharged coyote Ford crate motor in it with a six speed trans and a new suspension under it. If anyone has undertaken such a project please let me know or if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to let me know. I'm sure it will be a long process.. so all help is appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to the forum Thomas.
Your project sounds like a very interesting project.
I suggest you look at the following project thread:
[forum.britishv8.org]
This is a Gm LS engine going into a 65 FHC so it is not exactly what you are looking for but I am sure it will help.
There are four installments and there is lots more work to be done. Not much has happened for a while as Ken must have other stuff on his plate.
Send Ken a pm and he will be glad to help you with some of the things to look at.
Also please post photos so we can see what you are doing so we can give you advice along the way.
Looking forward to seeing progress on your project.

Cheers
Byron

Welcome, Thomas -

I see from the "Go Vols" tag here, and the area code in your other post that you're in Tennessee. Come on up to Townsend this fall for our informal gathering and you'll be able to meet up with some of us and check out lots of examples in one place. Here's a thread from last year's meet: [forum.britishv8.org]. Don't know how the Talley Ho's reservations are for that weekend, but they usually fill up pretty early.

Best,
Mickey

Hi Thomas,
The link is there that Bryon provided and yes, as you said, "it's a long process".
And Bryon is correct, not much has been done on that project recently since I have a few other things on my plate that need wrapping up first. Patience.
Ken
