This car was imported from California in 1989 and purchased by me at auction. The colour then was brown with black wings and of course LHD. In 1991 the car was dismantled to a bare chassis which was sandblasted and painted in black Hammerite. At the same time the car was converted to RHD and rebuilt with new green leather interior and repainted in Ivory. Improvements include fitting a Laystall Lucas HC alloy cylinder head, with the cylinder block bored out to 1350 cc. Also fitted with a CWP from an MGA of 4.3 ratio and more recently a Ford type 9 5 speed gearbox using a Hi-gear engineering conversion kit.


We purchased this car in 1999 and has since had a number modifications and improvements including a major engine rebuild taking the capacity back to the original 1250cc. It has been fitted with a new hood, a new steering rack and a 5 speed Ford type 9 gearbox using a Hi - Gear Engineering fitting kit.



The car build started on 8th November 1957 and was completed on the 11th of November and the next day shipped to North America. The original colour was black cellulose with white wall tyres together with a heater and adjustable steering column.

The car was imported back from USA in 1998 to Northern Ireland where it was restored and sold to a Classic Garage in Glasgow. It was purchased in 2000 by a buyer in North Wales and then by myself in 2006.

The car has benefited from a number of modifications including front disc brakes, electronic ignition, high torque starter and converted to negative earth. In 2011 an Oselli 1950cc stage 2 engine and 5 speed g/box was fitted. In a recent rolling road test the engine developed a max 93.7 hp and torque of 143.8 lb-ft.



One of the last produced it is completely as standard except for additional V8 style cooling fan. Having covered only 37000 miles it has spent some of its life in a garage showroom and most of the rest garaged and covering very few miles between MOTs.The car was purchased for a Club trip to Spain and is being re-commissioned in readiness.



1972 MGBGT in British Racing Green owner John Bungay. The car was originally supplied by Charles Clark Shrewsbury delivered on 16 February 1972, with Servo, Overdrive, Rostyle wheels, Heated rear window, and Radial ply tyres in Mallard Green. I am the tenth owner but the furthest it has lived in that time is Rugby. The car underwent a bare metal rebuild in 2000 when over £11,000 of new parts were used. The car now sporting a 1950 cc stage 2 fast road engine, Mini lite wheels, electronic ignition, KN filters, Electric fan, and more recently parabolic rear springs and slotted front discs.

The car now makes regular trips to the continent and has performed well in all conditions.



This MGTF is a 2002 model with a 1796 engine, blue trim and special seats. It is also fitted with central locking, electric windows and immobiliser.

MGB Roadster

Purchased in 2003 from the Hon Peter Alexander Harris with only 3000 miles on the clock. It had been part of his collection of cars. I have much of the history indeed from one MOT to another there was only 30 miles driven. I have many original invoices one invollves changing a rear light bulb at his local Rolls Royce Garage for the sum of over £100 ( the car was also valetted at the time)

The car has been driven extensively in Southern Ireland, most of Scotland and trips to Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Germany.
