Here's a nice MG that needs just a little work. I'm going to put it out here once, to see if there's any interest in this easy project. If not, I'll hold it and repair it later this spring.
I purchased this from a guy who had owned a restoration shop. Here's what he told me. He totally restored this MG about 20 years ago. Restoration included paint and a complete engine rebuild. He estimated he drove the car less than 1000 miles since restoration. Anyway, time went on and several years ago the man became too large to comfortably fit and drive the car. The car sat unused, in storage at least 2 years. Finally he decided he wasn't getting any thinner, and he sold the car to me.
The MG always starts. It had some older gas which I added some fresh premium to. It runs a little rich or it could just be the old gas. The new owner might need to clean or redo the carb. Brakes are very weak. The fluid is clear and full, but it takes numerous pumps to weakly stop the car. Usually, that's a master cylinder issue. they run about $40 on ebay if you want to replace it. The top has a couple of tears in it and could be replaced. Glass is good. Roll up windows are a little stiff. Headlights and blinkers work. Radio works. Did not test the heater or emergency brake. Flashers did not work. Paint is very shiny with only minor imperfections. Battery is a little weak, but still starts the car. Interior looks original and unrestored. Could use a good detail to really sharpen it cosmetically. The underside has some rust be appears structurally sound. The odometer reads 69k but vehicles over 10 years old are exempt from mileage disclosure in Wisconsin. Clear matching title. All photos are from March, 2018.
I'm selling this as a complete project car.
