Sorry, I had you confused with the gent who installed the Ford engine in his Hillman when I posted. I apologize for any confusion my comment may have caused you.

Installing the Alpine engine in the Minx isn't a real big challenge. Use the Minx engine mounts and modify the exhaust double down pipes back and down to clear the cross member and floor pan (this is because the Minx mounts the engine a couple of inches forward of the Alpine location). I'm not sure how Z-S side draft carbs would work in the Minx, but the single or dual down draft options should not be a problem.
Have fun, Don
