1967 MG Mini 1100 Supercharged Sedan
This four door MG 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 at least 20 years comes with the vehicle. This is not a Are-bodied@ grey market car. It has spent most of its time as a trailer queen going to car shows the last 25 years. The MG version of the ADO16 (big brother to the Austin America) is very rare to find in any condition- especially in the US. The left hand drive car would make a great addition to any MG car collection.
I converted the original engine to a supercharged custom gas 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 $12k. Then the car went into storage while I served three tours to Afghanistan for the Army. I moved to Salt Lake City. UT two years ago and the car has been stored ever since. The car started right up without any coaxing a week ago. 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 but I do not believe it is the original odometer. 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. (It would be easy to return the engine to the original dual carb set up for the MG purist collector. ) The car passed a Utah state safety inspection for licensing. The title is a clear Nevada title. The engine sports a low flow LCB exhaust header and a rebuilt transmission with KAD quick shift rod change shifter. 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. 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 original liquid suspension was recently recharged. Entirely new custom professionally hand sewn from scratch front and rear seats. New carpet kit. 4 brand new tires Fall 2016 replaced the 15 year old tires that had begun to dry rot from lack of use. Boxes of spare parts. original manuals. and documentation to include rare spare suspension components. original rims and hub caps. etc. Parts are plentiful and still available from such outlets as Minimaniacom. 7entcom. Minicitycom. and many others. There is great internet support of these cars with MG and Austin America clubs around the world. .
The roof head liner was removed with the restoration. I have a new gray matching kit but it has not yet been installed. The door panels are a little faded. There is a 3x5" scuff in the blue paint on the left rear door. It is hardly noticeable. A small ding in the right rear lower quarter panel that is difficult to see unless the light is just right (see the photos. ) The paint color is not original. The blue and white color scheme as I received it was popular but not original to this car. It was originally conought green. There are a couple of flecks of white that managed to speckle the blue up on the front fender.
The requisite 3” oil drip spot on the garage floor that these engines were notorious for is present. (Oil seals shrink with time even though this engine is new when it was put in the car seven years ago. This does not mean there is anything mechanically wrong with the engine. )
The car has a liquid suspension. I am including the pump setup for that every other year top off. Its not hard to do. The liquid suspension ride is truly amazing.
Since there is a supercharger pumping air into the engine it has to run on premium gas or you will Aknock@ the engine. This is not a racing engine nor drive train. The supercharger was added to get better performance at high altitude when I lived @ 5500 feet. This setup will give superior performance at sea 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 but are still 1960s technology.
The usual legal stuff:
The Buy It Now price will disappear quickly after the bidding starts. My ebay reputation speaks for itself. The car is sold as is. where is. A non-refundable $500 dollar Paypal deposit is required immediately at auction closure and the balance within five business days of bid 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 reserve the right to delete any bidder that is suspicious for being a child. or a last minute bid shiller. I welcome any and all questions via ebay email system only. I answer all emails on a once daily basis. Feel free to ask lots of questions. You are welcome to come and see the car on appointment.
The purchaser is responsible for pick up and shipping costs. 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. The car is stored at my home about two blocks of I-15 in Centerville. UT. It is an easy pick up for a car hauler. I can help you with some advice based on my car shipping experience. These cars were made to be run about town and not across continents. I am selling the car to complete a restoration on a classic mini pickup truck that I have also been working on. I don't have room for both projects anymore.
