Thanks all for your views, comments and ideas.
V8's and standing quarters etc are all very tempting but as Nick said, i must keep to the brief!!!!
I also take the point that any modern transplant should not be underestimated in terms of difficulty and hence time.
I think there are expectations for summer use 2017!!!
In considering everything I think the 1500 Spitfire with overdrive is probably the sensible route. Sourcing a rusty one and taking off what is needed.
Anyone got a spare one tucked away?
