Panels don't look too bad from the pic's. Lots of parts to find though. Does he have any of the other bits or have you go to source glass, bonnet, front etc?
Zetec going in ? Very Happy

So not too bad if you have those parts then. I know interiors are usually a tricky thing to source but if you avoid he purist route its not a problem. 24v Cosworth would certainly give it some go but you could get away with a smaller engine as I don't think these are a heavy car? Might respond well to a smaller N/A lump on big carbs or bike carbs maybe?
