looking for series 2 engine compartment photos

    What's a good source for photos of a 100% stock series 2 engine compartment?

    There's lots of photos online (Google etc.) but the cars are never stock, and I haven't seen any period photos from the 60s or 100% factory-original restorations.

    I'm mainly interested in hose routing and other small details but also genuinely curious what the engine compartments looked like straight off the assembly line.

    John the Brooklabds road test books.. "Tiger and alpine gold porfolio" is a great start

    Thanks! I'll see if I can find a copy. It looks like there's a few editions of it out there - is there one I should look for?
    There's a version with a blue cover - I'm guessing this is the 1st edition. I also see a couple other versions with a full color cover. One has a red Alpine and the other is white.

    John, i have the blue one and gold portfolio.. The blue one is older and less test, but strangely has some tests the gold portfolio doesnt.. Maybe. Copyright or licencing issues later on for those articles?

    Either will do... Id say get both... They are fun to read
