5 ways to make it better
1 ADD AN ALTERNATOR
All of these Westminsters came with a dynamo, but it’s easy to swap to an alternator instead. An array of Lucas units will fit.
2 SWAP THE ENGINE
You could fit a later (2.9-litre) C-series engine but these aren’t as durable as the 2.6-litre units (and the 2.6 is powerful enough).
3 UPGRADE ITS DIFF
For more relaxed cruising you can fit a back axle from a Big ‘Healey or an A110 Westminster, both of which have a high ratio. Talk to the club for pointers to specialists and an idea of cost.
4 ADD OVERDRIVE
Overdrive was optional on the A95 and A105. It’s worth having; you can fit a unit from a Farina Westminster or Big ‘Healey.
5 UPRATE ITS BRAKES
The all-drum brakes work okay, but swapping to a frontdisc system from a Big ‘Healey or Farina Westminster is worthwhile.
