THIS MG SALOON WAS A BARN FIND.
THE BODY WAS USED AS A CHICKEN HOUSE, NOTHING ELSE WAS WITH THE CAR. THE GENTLEMAN WHO FOUND IT HAD A MGB PAST ITS PRIME AS FAR AS RUST GOES. HE DID FIND THE CHASSIS, SO HE REBUILT IT BIT OF WELDING, WITH NEW BUSHES AND PINS ETC. AND PAINTED IT. HE THEN HAD THE BODY STRIPPED AND ANY WELDING DONE, AND THEN ZINK PHOSPHATE PRIMA ADDED. HE THEN FITTED ALL THE MGB WORKING PARTS TO IT, ENGINE CLUTCH GEARBOX AND BACK AXLE,AND DISC BRAKES, TO THE CHASSIS. HE FOUND THAT THE PETROL TANK WAS LEAKING, SO NEW STAINLESS ONE WAS FITTED, LOTS MORE ITEMS WERE FITTED IE NEW BRAKE PIPES NEW CYLINDER.S, TOO MANY TO LIST HERE. HE NOW HAD A RUNNING CHASSIS. HE PURCHACED A NEW MG NUMBER PLATE, I AM TOLD APROX £2,000.
HE WAS AT THIS TIME IN POOR STATE OF HEALTH AND WAS NOT ABLE TO CONTIUE.
THAT IS WHEN I BECAME INVOLVED,
I PURCHASED CAR IN APRIL 2018.
IN MY OWNERSHIP I HAVE HAD THE PAINTWORK FINISHED IN JAGUAR BLUE AND SILVER GREY. FLOORS AND BOOT FLOORS WERE ALL REPLACED WITH NEW WOOD, ALL INTERIOR AND HEADLINING REPLACED, DOORS AND SEATS NEW TRIM, NEW CARPET AND INSULATION, NEW WOODEN DASH, NEW BUMPERS AND OVERIDERS HANDLES AND STRIKERS ALL NEW .THE LIST IS ENDLESS. WHEN I CAME TO USE THE CAR ON THE ROAD, I FOUND ENGINE A BIT RATTLY , HAD A FULL REBUILD, REBORE, NEW PISTONS, GROUND AND POLISHED CRANK, NEW SHELLS ALL ROUND, NEW CAMSHAFT AND FOLLOWERS SPROCKETS AND CHAIN ETC. NEW BATTERY, LEAK FROM AXLE ON TO BRAKES, HAD NEW OUTER BEARINGS AND OIL SEALS REPLACED. NEW BATTERY, ELECTRIC FAN FITTED. CAR NOW RUNS VERY WELL, AND IS A JOY TO DRIVE. AND IT CAN KEEP UP WITH MODERN TRAFFIC QUITE EASILY. IT HAS ONLY COVERED 500 MILES SO NOT FULLY RUN IN. HAVE NOW WAX OILED UNDER WINGS AND RUNNING BOARDS. I HAVE THE USE OF A HOIST TO CHECK UNDERNEETH IF REQUIRED.
BUT NOW DUE TO A COMPLETE CHANGE OF MY CIRCUMSTANCES I NOW HAVE TO SELL THIS CAR. THE PURIEST AMONGST US MAY FROWN, BUT IF WE HAD NOT DONE SO THERE WOULD NOT BE A MG HERE TODAY.
THIS CAR WON THE MG CAR OF THE SHOW AT STONELIEGH THIS MONTH.
OFFERS WELLCOME. RAY.COTTER.
