Sebastien, The Ardea is nothing to do with Thornley Kelham, it is owned by Trevor Davis of Circuit Motor Bodies. The Fulvia engine is shoehorned in at a more vertical angle, hence the fabricated inlet manifold. It does without the distributor and has an ignition pack instead, so it fits. The gearbox is Triumph Spitfire, running to a Ford Escort axle at the back. No modifications have been made to the body, so it would be easy to convert back to standard if necessary. Apparently it drives very well, easily maintaining 70 MPH.

David, it's actually a twin choke downdraught and sits directly above, similar to an Appia  carburettor, so nothing sticking out to the side.
I'll see if I can find a picture.
