Wedge Ford powered TR7

Driving back to Venice, FL from Cape Coral on SR 765, I spotted a red TR7 parked at the side of the road at the intersection of Shotgun Rd. It was for sale and here is the dope: "1976 Triumph, 4-speed, Ford turbo, Ford rear end. 941-637 (or 677?) 6111." No one seemed to be home so I couldn't get any more info. I'd be curious if anyone here wants to follow it up. I'm not interested myself but it could be an interesting find for someone on this board. It looked sound on the outside and was a faded red.

Probably....nah...DEFINITELY more reliable AND powerful than the TRactor engine it came with.
Geez.
At least the guy didn't arc weld some bow tie in it.

In my opinion, Very Difficult to surpass the power to weight ratio of a Buick/Olds 215 engine, with the caveat being, "Naturally Aspirated" engine...Mark
