why not use the engine from the tamiya mini? all you need is a gearbox to make it inline. they are both a series engines, i dont know if the old austin heally kit has an engine but if it does it would work too. you might be able to find the 4 cylinder by searching mgb engines, it seems to be a popular kit so someone might have done one for it

If you're looking for something that looks pretty stock your best bet is probably the engine from the Tamiya Lotus Super 7. Bonus that you can also swap something more modern into the 7 eventually. There's also a few Honda engines out there. You can also find a 3SGTE and a 22R on Shapeways. USCP does a Ford Cosworth that looks very nice. There's a fair amount of options, you just need to decide what direction your build is going.
