Technical specifications, photos and description:
This car has been extensively restored and uprated for modern use. The paintwork is excellent. the car has been completely re upholstered and carpeted. rear bumper and over riders re chromed and windscreen seal replaced. The door cappings and dashboard woodwork are all in excellent order with controls added for the control of both flashing turn signals and original semaphore fitments. The car is also fitted with electric windscreen washers to compliment the self parking wipers. the motor of which has been overhauled. New inertia reel seat belts are fitted for front seat occupants.
The rear axle now contains a 4. 3 to 1 differential in place of the original 4. 75 to 1 which was rather to low a ratio even at the time. The gearbox has been fitted with new synchromesh on the top three ratios.
The engine has been totally rebuilt and re bored with new five ringed MGA pistons and larger valves as fitted to the MG Magnette ZB with which the car shares it's body shell. Also twin SU carburettors and a tubular exhaust manifold with matching performance exhaust system and a new clutch completes the specification.
All this means that the car can be driven in comfort with reasonable performance more in keeping with todays conditions without losing it's originality. The modifications were all fitted to other BMC cars of the time.
The car is in regular use and has been used for a number of weddings in the last two years. These cars are getting hard to find numbering about fifty left registered. They share many parts with other BMC cars including the MGA and Magnette so parts are not generally a problem.
There is a stack of invoices with the car and some historical documentation.
The vehicle is taxed (free tax) and ready to use. If required by the buyer an MOT can be supplied (although not now required by law).
The car is located in North Hertfordshire and may be viewed by appointment. Please e-mail for details or call 07999 455681 between 5. 00pm and 9. 30pm any day!
