73 TR6 for sale, thousands spent on recent restoration!

Price reduced, now available for $15,995!


This is a really nice 1973 Triumph Tr6, #CF676U. Engine number is CF823UE. We’ve known this car for a while and we’ve done restoration service work totaling more than $8000 on this car. Tires, carpet and a host of other parts are brand new. Previous owners have spent thousands as well, all documented in a giant stack of receipts that will travel with the car.

Included in the file are receipts documenting the engine was rebuild in 1989. The machining and engine parts receipts are included. In 1993 the bodywork and paint was done. So the car was easy to buy when it was offered to me, when the owner decided to get a new boat. It’s a great driver that looks great, with lots of new interior parts too. Odometer stopped working recently; the car shows 51,074 miles on the clock.

Most recently, we replaced the clutch with the best one available (“magic clutch”), as well as the master and slave cylinder. Rear springs, all shocks and all hydraulics are new too.

The car is fully sorted; call if you are looking for a great driver for your summer, at a great price!

1952 MGTD for sale, no malware!

Our website just took a full sick day due to malware. As I reflect this unexpected intrusion, my mind wanders to the white 1952 MGTD we have just revived (seen at left in an alternate universe), which seems the appropriate antidote to a stressful day fending off invasive bots. If you are reading this, it means the humans I contracted (with their team of helpful bots) have successfully reactivated our website, for a fee perhaps about equal to the MSRP of a new MGTD in 1952.

Why is the MGTD relevant in this age of servers and web hosts? This car is very basic. So basic, in fact, that one feels in a TD like they are riding a horse (that’s a complement) because life in this car becomes very simple. The ride is smooth, while not plush. The entire experience is well-damped by a wood and steel structure. 57 Horsepower seems just fine to me as malicious code invades my database and root files (whatever they are). All I really want to do right now is emerge from the mist on the moors with perfect patina. I love technology and the web and our modern computing power makes our business possible. But TD motoring remains a precious reminder of something that we once were.

This white TD pictured here last rolled under its own power when Hip Hop was not even a glint in the eye of Disco, and the former owner might have been heard humming Bee Gees riffs (“Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive?”) as his bell bottoms hustled the pedals of these wooden floor boards, last in 1982. We rescued this car out of its 35 year slumber for a new owner in Maryland and the car is now just about ready to depart for its new home.


To be fair, this car did have some malware of it’s own under the bonnet after our mechanical restoration… in the photo above you can see Russ scanning the fuel filter and purging all the malicious crud that populated this car’s memory, that is to say, there was still a little residual junk in the tank after we removed, boiled, blasted, soaked and cleaned the 35 years of debris out of the fuel tank. We apparently left just one fuel filter full of nastiness in the tank, which promptly filled the filter and shut off the car, which might have ruined my nice motoring experience were it not for Shawn, the 12-year old who lives up the street, who was happy to push me back to the shop. “Just like pushing the blocking sled at football practice,” he said.

And so with a new fuel filter now installed, the TD is ready, waiting only for the new steering wheel to arrive to replace the wire hoop that is all we have left of the original wheel.

If you like this sort of thing, we are selling another 1952 MGTD, this one a green in nicer cosmetic shape, fully restored about ten years ago. I owned this green TD twice before, and sold it to two different great customers who loved and respected this car. Scott has asked me to sell it for him now on consignment. You can see it in an older post linked here. The car still looks identical to what you see in the photos and videos, as it has only spent most of intervening time nestled in Scott’s very nice garage in Rhode Island.

It’s an excellent, capable and sorted TD we are selling for $22,995, so you too can enjoy next time your (bug)iPhone seizes, your antivirus software is out of date and tech support for your devices means a conversation with someone halfway around the world who you would love to talk with to hear about life in a foreign land, but when it comes to fixing your phone or television, somehow something just seems missing.

MGTDs are here to fix all that…

Stunning 1969 MGC for sale, original colors, matching engine, low mileage, price reduced!

1969 MGC

New Price-$32,995!

This is my personal MGC. It has the original engine as confirmed by British Heritage Motor Trust. “Engine number recorded for chassis number G-CN1-U/4357-G is 29GA-RU-H/1499 and the colour is Black with black interior trim and a black soft top.”

The C is a delightful high-speed cruiser. She has a wonderful 145 HP big Healey based 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 B’s 14s) and electric overdrive. It’s a rare car with delightful bulges in its original aluminum bonnet. For comparison purposes, a 1969 MGB was advertised with just 91 Horsepower.

64K mile 1971 Volvo P1800E for sale, overdrive!

Now available for $16,995!

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 $16,995. I can’t think of many classic cars this unique, this head-turning, (with overdrive and fuel injection) for this price!
