73 TR6 for sale, thousands spent on recent restoration!

NOW SOLD, congratulations Tom! !


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!


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

1969 MGC


SALE PENDING
New Price-$29,995!

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.

1963 Austin Healey Sprite Mark II restoration project for sale, with 1098 engine and disk brakes

This is the perfect project for anyone looking for an easy build of a simple car. The hard work is already done. Thousands were spent on bodywork and paint. Now the project is ready for assembly by the right party.

This MK 2 Sprite (HAN7L 30093) is a later mark 2 Sprite with disk brakes, rib case transmission and a 1098 engine. All the original Mark 2 Sprites (HAN6) were upgraded in October of 1962 at car #24732 and hence this HAN7 is a 63 model. The car was a rotisserie project that stalled due to illness and has sat for a while.

The paint job is excellent. The car shines beautifully. It was painted at least five years ago and there are no blisters or imperfections showing-a great sign. There is no evidence of any issues with panel and/or rust repair that was done when the car was repainted. It was done right. The only sin I can see that was committed during body restoration was a failure to degrease the interior floor pans prior to paint (you can see this paint on the top of the floor pans now flaking off due to improper prep). But this is no indication of the quality of the external job elsewhere, where it counts. The underside floors, for example, were properly prepared and the paint is adhering perfectly. The new owner can easily scrape the interior floor pans, degrease and paint. They will ultimately be covered with carpet anyway.

Many new and used parts are included. All new front disk brake components are also installed on both front wheels. Panel gaps are quite good. Whether you build a performance Sprite or a correct restoration, this is an excellent platform!
A used 1098 engine as well as a used rib case transmission core are included. I was told the engine was rebuilt, but you should presume both engine and transmission will need a rebuild.

The car comes with a clear title. It would cost thousands to prepare and paint a Sprite to this level! Please call if you would like to make this car your own!

MGTD Barn Find for sale-sitting for 35 years!

NOW SOLD and heading to Maryland! Congratulations John!


This 1952 MGTD (TD 21176) has been parked in a garage in Pennsylvania since 1982. The prior owner acquired it in 1975, rebuilt the engine in 1976, used it regularly, and then health issues caused him to park it exactly where it sat for the next 35 years. We recently freed up the brakes (she now rolls easily), brought it to our shop, drained the old fuel, changed the oil, lubricated the cylinder walls, established oil pressure and started it up. The car is is ready for mechanical freshening to make it a wonderful driver once again.

She’ll require all new hydraulic and rubber cooling system parts to come back to life. The fuel tank will need to be cleaned-out or replaced to ensure a good fuel supply. The bias ply tires are old and need replacement. The door hinges need work. So there is work to do.

But there is something quite magical about this car, just as it sits. It has just the right patina, with an older inexpensive respray in off-white that looks just fine. The interior is mostly original, including what appears to be the original vinylide dash covering and the original now decayed steering wheel (reproductions of these are available). The seats too look just right and overall, this car has time-warp appeal. It’s the kind of car you can drive without worry, while still impressing everyone as you go. There is something very attractive about this kind of ride.

The underside is excellent. There is no rust. This has been a dry car. There are a few nicks and scratches in the paint, but the structure of the car is exceptionally solid. Maybe that’s why this car feels, to me anyway, just about right.

The top is good and so are the four piece side curtains! Lots of documentation is also included.

Call or email if you would like to take this MGTD home!

1967 restored MGB with matching original engine and color! NOW SOLD!

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 1972 TR6 for sale

img_3287

NOW SOLD! Way to go David, you got a great one! (the third car he has purchased from us, thank you!)

Sometimes we are lucky to get cars from the ideal seller and this TR6 is such a car. It’s awfully close to perfect, as far as I am concerned, and we are lucky to have this one to offer for sale.

What makes a perfect car? We can drive it out of the trailer without fear of getting stranded. We can photograph it when it arrives without concern, surprises or failed expectations. In fact everything about this car exceeded my expectation. It’s that good.

img_3323Many thanks are due to the prior owner, who was meticulous with this car and who sweated the details so that the new owner won’t have to. The leather seats are perfect. The upgraded burl wood dash is stunning. Everything is super clean. The engine bay is concours quality. If you are the kind of person who wants the best example of a particular marque, this car is for you.

It is a delight to drive and needs nothing, except maybe a tonneau (that’s a boot cover in the trunk). Dynamat is installed throughout for quiet. Coker red line tires are nearly new. A USB cable is hidden in the glove box so you can connect. An emergency hood release hangs in the passenger footwell in the unlikely event that the hood release cable should fail. And most importantly, a Toyota five-speed was installed. The car shifts beautifully on a  gear box that will outlive us all… no more electric overdrive! (with more moving parts than the entire car)!
