don't see why not. I doubt, though, that a P5B is really a practical
proposition as an everyday workhorse now - lovely cars, though. ISTR they
used the Borg-Warner 35 auto gearbox, which is not a bad piece of kit but
not in the same league as the ZF 4HP22.
I spose, with a bit of effort, you could substitute a 3.9 RR + auto box;
which would give you about the same power output as the high-compression 3.5
did in the old days on 5* petrol.
dunno what axle the P5B ran.
