64K mile 1971 Volvo P1800E for sale, overdrive!

This Volvo P1800 #184363034961 has just 64,000 miles and drives wonderfully, with a four speed transmission, aftermarket sunroof and factory electric overdrive. It has the original engine and fuel injection, and starts and runs beautifully. It was driven sporadically by the last owner who had the car since about 2000, when receipts place mileage at about 60,000. Thus the car has traveled just 4000 miles in the last 17 years. All service records are included since that time and the car was maintained with no expense spared to keep the car in excellent mechanical shape. Note the recent new front brake calipers and brake lines.

I bought this car for my personal collection. It’s solid and I love the lines of this striking and unusual classic. I just haven’t had time to enjoy it, and since I need the space, I have decided to pass this one on to someone who enjoy it.

The car was repainted dark green over the original code 104 turquoise. The paint is very good and shines beautifully. Chrome and trim is also in very nice condition. The engine bay is very clean and the underside is nice and solid. Overdrive works nicely. This car is a lot of fun to drive.

This car presents beautifully! The interior would be the next place to invest in restoration, although it is quite serviceable as is. There are a few cracks in replacement ABS dash board cover, so one might remove the dash and recover it with the original pad, which is easily available. The seats and foam are also older, which makes this car a candidate for seat restoration. All those interior parts are readily available from vintage Volvo parts specialists.

The exterior of the car looks so good and it runs so well, in many ways this is the ideal car that allows you to restore the interior at your own pace while you enjoy it. Or drive it as is, but either way, the body is nice and the car looks great. The price is $17,995. I can’t think of many classic cars this unique, this head-turning, (with overdrive and fuel injection) for this price!

1967 restored MGB with matching original engine and color! New drive video!

img_3540

We are excited to offer this 1967 MGB Tourer for sale. This is a later 67 B (built on the 22nd and 23rd of September 1967, per the Heritage Certificate) and thus was among the first cars to be shipped to the USA with back-up lights. This is the last of the best Bs, with chrome bumpers and a metal dashboard. The less attractive padded dash model come out in 1968, which also marked the dawn of less sexy “safety” octagon knock-off spinners, additional reflectors and more. Here we have cleaner lines and much more attractive vintage two-earned knock offs, correct for the car.

We’ve just installed a pair of new front lever shocks and aligned the front end, to further prepare this great car for a new home. And check out the driving video shown below!

amy-and-dave-in-1966-mgbI have a particular soft spot in my heart for this vintage of MGB as my first car was a 1966 B. Here’s a picture of me in that car with my sister back in the 70s. So when this one came along as a trade-in recently, I jumped. This is a particularly special color combination of black and deep red– always a knock-out. The chrome wheels are also quite striking. Top is brand new. New leather seats are beautifully restored with contrasting piping. Carpet is also new. Trunk is fit with an aftermarket carpet kit for a more finished look.

img_3520The included Heritage certificate validates that this is the correct original five-main bearing 18GB engine that came with this car, another big plus. The car has a non-synchro first gear original four speed non-overdrive gear box. This car drives great, the engine is very clean and rebuilt, not many miles were put on the car since restoration. She was converted to a single 12 volt battery from the factory twin six volts, and while not authentic, it’s a lot more convenient with fewer connections to fail. This is a popular upgrade that I have in my own personal 67 MGB. The original electric fuel pump was converted to a solid state fuel pump with no points to fail. This is another good reliability upgrade. New fuel tank, exhaust system and master and slave cylinders. An upgraded gear reduction starter has also been fit.

The car drives great.

Stunning and rare 1969 MGC for sale, new pictures!

1969 MGC


NEW Pictures! Nice weather here allowed us to get some great new top down MGC shots. Check out the photo gallery below!

This is my personal MGC.

The C is a delightful high-speed cruiser. She has a wonderful 145 HP big Healey 2.9 liter seven main bearing six cylinder engine stuffed under the hood, along with twin brake boosters and torsion bar suspension and 15 inch wheels (instead of the Bs 14s) and electric overdrive. It’s a rare car with delightful bulges in its aluminum bonnet.

I have loved and admired this 1969 MGC (GCN 1U4357G) since I acquired it in February 2013. This car was one of the first 1969 roadsters. The series was launched in 1967 just as Austin Healey stopped big Healey production and extra engines were available. I am not sure if any landed in the USA before 1968. 1969 was the last year for the C, with a total of 8,999 built. But how many are left? When have you seen one lately? This is the only one I have seen recently with the correct original seats. By the way, these came with octagon-shaped safety knock spinners when new-the prior owner put on the more attractive two-eared type, they look cooler, but that’s easy to change if it bothers you.

We’ve done a lot to maintain and preserve it, (I have all our records, call and I will read through them for you). We have recently put in richer needles in the original SU carbs and the correct original air filter box is off in the pictures, but that’s just because we were working on tuning this week. I have driven this car very little and need more space as we expand our building so I am reluctantly putting this great classic car up for sale.

This is a special car. Very rare but in particular, I have never seen another in such nice condition. I believe this to be an original 37k mile car with one respray about 10 years ago. It shines beautifully, the chrome wires are also recent, and everything  about this car is nice. Interior is correct and extremely well-preserved, with the original seat belts and a somewhat modern stereo, with loose speakers in the footwells behind the seats. It works, and can be easily removed if the new owner so desires. The car comes with the original tonneau and a good top with a zip down rear window that appears to be about ten years old.

There is one very small ding on the driver door top (where an apple fell out of a tree). I tried to photograph it but it doesn’t show up in the picture, so it’s not something to worry about, but its not a perfect car. The fuel gauge works fine but the gauge glass is a little cloudy. But I never cared about any of these minor imperfections. Find me another MGC in such a desirable color combo with working overdrive and such a nice preserved condition, with such low mileage… NEVER. This is the nicest C roadster I have seen, Here’s a chance to own a rare part of MG history. Yours for $37,995. Call or email if you’d like to make this rare classic yours! And check out my black 62 MGA with the black 67 MGB and this 69 MGC… we have three black MGs under one roof!

Now you can own two great classic black MGs- both in excellent condition! We have a really nice black 1967 MGB for sale on our website (click here to check out the MGB).

Restored 1968 Morris Mini Cooper S for sale


I’ve been using this wonderful Cooper for errands and it’s exceptionally fast, great fun and ready for a new home! This Mini will smoke any stock 1275 Bugeye. It’s that quick!

This is a Mark 2 Mini with a Cooper S engine. We got the car from a restorer in Kentucky, freshly painted in a non-stock but stunning metallic royal blue with all the floor and trunk welding complete. It’s completely rust free. We assembled the car and completed the restoration. The interior is really nice and the new two-stage paint shines beautifully!

Most importantly, this car screams! Header and 1.5 inch (larger) twin SU carbs are fit, and the car pulls very nicely. Idle is smooth, this is a very street-friendly car that’s quite user-friendly and easy to drive. Front disk brakes stop the car extremely well. This one puts a smile on my face with every shift! This is a very clean and quick Mini that’s tons of fun.

Recent 145 sr 10 Khumho tires are fit, with surprisingly good grip and a very correct look. Oil pressure and temperature is excellent-I have posted a picture that shows great oil pressure at about 55 MPH/3000 RPM with a warm engine, and the temperature right where you want to see it. The 1275s engine is very strong. A fully synchronized four-speed transmission (1968 would be the first year for a fully synchronized gearbox) is also a dream, with great synchros and smooth shifting. Hydraulics are all new. Ride quality is quite nice on an original hydrolastic system.

This is stunner and a whole lot of vintage Mini fun for $21,995. Call 203-561-6929 or email for more details!
