Definitely!!!!! I had a 71 Midget with a Rivergate 5 speed (Datsun) in it
and man what a difference that conversion made.
I've talked to Bill Perry of Rivergate, who is a good friend and
neighbor,.about also producing a Spitfire kit and he has all the work he
needs with the Spridget line. (I think he also has a bias against Spits too
since he used to race against them in a Sprite). Anyway, it's too bad that
he doesn't make one. The quality of the product he produces is excellent.
Hopefully, the folks in New Zealand can match this quality. Do they have a
price for just the conversion kit, without the transmission? We can get that
