1967 MG 1100 Supercharged Sedan

     This four door mini  is entirely original and completely documented to include not only a clean title but also the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certified Copy of the Factory Record (birth certificate) and commissioning plate documenting its beginning at the factory.   Repair records. manuals and documentation that goes back for 20 years comes with the vehicle.   This is not a “re-bodied” grey market car.

     The engine was converted from the original engine to a supercharged custom engine built by Minimania specifically for a VMAXSCART supercharger kit which I imported from England.   (Engine and supercharger project alone cost $8300. ) The pain staking restoration took almost 3 years and $20k.   Then the car went into storage while I served three tours to Afghanistan for the Army as a combat surgeon.   Recently I took the car out of storage.   The car started right up without any coaxing.   It has never been stored outside nor been driven in the rain or snow.   There is no body rust.   The under carriage looks like new.   The odometer says 70. 00.   The car inspection looks more like 70 miles since the restoration.   See the photos.

     Here are the goods:

Rebuilt supercharged engine with only 10 miles logged.   Low flow LCB exhaust header.   Rebuilt transmission with KAD quick shift rod change shifter.   New Optima gel battery (now in the trunk in order to make room for the supercharger intake) and a keyed cut off switch.   New electronic ignition and starter solenoid in a converted to 12V negative ground alternator electrical system.   New fuel pump. Entirely new professionally hand sewn from scratch front and rear seats.   New grey carpet kit.   Spin on oil filter rather than the expensive rare canister type.

     The oil is still honey yellow in color because the engine is so new.   The liquid suspension was novel when first introduced.   It gave these cars an incredible ride on bumpy British roads.   The original liquid suspension was recently was recharged.   Also included are boxes of spare parts. manuals. and documentation to include rare spare suspension components.   Parts are plentiful and still available from such outlets as Minimania. 7ent. Minicity. and many others.   There is also  great internet support of these cars such as Austinamericausacom and the 1100clubcom sites.   They hold many links to other sites besides MG sites.

     The disappointments:

     The roof liner is no longer present.   I pulled it out during the restoration and did not have a local shop with the skill set to make a custom one.   A new suspended liner kit will cost about $350 from a shop in the UK and take a month to receive.   The interior panels are a little faded.   There is a 3x5" scuff in the blue paint on the left rear door.   It is hardly noticeable.   The paint is fading slightly but polishes up nicely.

     The requisite oil drip on the garage floor that these engines were notorious for is present.   (Oil seals shrink with time when not driven even though this engine was new when it was put in the car seven years ago.   This does not mean there is anything mechanically wrong with the engine. )

     The liquid suspension has to be pumped up once a season.   I am including the suspension pump setup.    Its not hard to do.    Most of these cars were later converted from a liquid suspension to the hard bumper suspension to avoid this problem.   The trade off with the hard suspension is a much harder suspension ride.   The liquid suspension ride is truly amazing.   The conversion kits are still available if you do not want to keep the ride original.

      Since there is a supercharger it has to run on premium gas or you will “knock” the engine.   The supercharger was added to get better performance at high altitude where I live @ 5500 feet.   This setup will give superior performance at see level but these engines were not made to high rev like a racing engine.   These engines are very easy to work on for tinkering in the garage.    A box of spare parts and tires also come with the car.

      The usual legal stuff:

      The Buy it Now price will disappear quickly after the bidding starts.   Don't ask to end the auction early with an offer.   There is no time for buyers remorse and relisting.   This is a legal contract so be prepared to keep your end of the bargain.   My ebay reputation speaks for itself.   The car is sold as is. where is without any said or implied warranty to its mechanical condition. safety. or ability to pass an emissions inspection.   A non-refundable $500 dollar Paypal deposit is required immediately at auction closure and the balance within five business days of auction closure.   If you are new to ebay without a purchase history or a history of less than 99 percent do not bid without first emailing me.  I welcome any and all questions via ebay email system only.   I answer all emails on a daily basis.   If you bid I know you are serious buyer.   I only have time for phone calls for serious buyer bidders- no tire kickers please.   The purchaser is responsible for pick up and shipping costs.   I am willing to store the car for a week or two after the final payment without charge.   After that my house is being sold and we are moving out of state. If you have never shipped a car before. it is very easy to arrange. but it can take 2-4 weeks on average to receive a car from across the country.    I can help you with some advice based on my car shipping experience.   These cars were made to be run about town cars and not cross country drivers.
