BODYWORK.

THE STRUCTURE OF THIS V8 IS EXCELLENT. LOOR'S SILLS CHASSIS RAILS ARE ALL EXCEELENT AS ARE THE INNER WINGS AND BOOT FLOOR. XTERNALLY. HE V8 HAS BEEN REPAINTED AT SOME POINT IN ITS DISTANT PAST AND HAS BEEN DONE TO A RESONABLE STANDARD. HERE ARE SIGNS OF AGEING NOW TO MAINLY THE BOTTOM OF THE DOORS WHICH HAVE RUSTED. ND THE ONE REAR SEAM ON THE PASSENGER SIDE HAS SOME RUST STARTING TO BUBBLE THROUGH. HERE IS A DENT AT THE TOP OF THE DRIVERS DOOR AND ONE HALF WAY DOWN THE PASSENGER SIDE WHERE THE FRONT WING MEETS THE DOOR. HIS IS LIGHT AND IS ON BOTH PANELS. LL THESE DENTS WOULD COME OUT EASILY. HE PAINT HAS A GOOD SHINE BUT IS NOW OLD AND THERE ARE VARIOUS CHIPS AND SCUFFS. OTHING HORRIBLE. G IS STILL VERY PRESENTABLE. HROME IS ALL VERY GOOD. A GLASS SUNROOF IS FITTED AND DOES NOT LEAK. HIS V8 CAN BE USED AS IS FOR YEARS. HEN TIDYED UP AT A LATER DATE.   

INTERIOR.

VERY TIDY INSIDE. ARPETS ARE VERY GOOD AND HAVE BEEN REPLACED AT SOME POINT WITH RED EDGED ONES. HE DOOR PANELS HAVE ALSO BEEN REPLACED IN A SIMILAR STYLE. OOR TOPS ARE EXCELLENT. EATS ARE ALL VERY GOOD. ASH IS ALL GOOD. LL GAUGES WORK AND LIGHT UP. ND ALL SWITCHES WORK. ND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE HEATER AND BLOWER WORK. EADLINING IS GOOD. LL GLASS IN GOOD ORDER. HE GIGARETTE LIGHTER IS UNUSED AND ASHTRAY LOOKS UNUSED. NTERIOR LIGHT ALSO WORKS. A NICE TIDY INTERIOR THAT REQUIRES NOTHING.

MECHANICALY.

HERE ARE DUNLOP TYRES FITTED ALL ROUND WHICH ARE STILL AS NEW WITH NO AGEING PRESENT AND ARE H RATED. 85/70/14 IN SIZE. THE V8 HAS BEEN RECOMMISIONED BY A SPECIALIST WHICH INVOLVED FREEING OF THE CLUTCH WHICH WAS THE REASON V8 CAME OFF THE ROAD. FTER ALL THAT TIME AND EXPENCE LITTLE USE CAUSED THE NEW CLUTCH TO STICK SO IN FRUSTRATION THE MG WAS PUT IN THE GARAGE LOCKED AWAY IN SHAME! ANYWAY. HE CLUTCH FREED AFTER A 10 MILE DRIVE IN THE COUNTRY. ND VARIOUS HOSES AND OILS HAVE BEEN CHANGED. ARBS CLEANED OUT. EW FRONT PADS FITTED STICKY BRAKE PISTON FREED OF. ND A THOROUGH CHECK OVER INCLUDING AXLE AND GEARBOX OIL LEVELS DONE. EW IGNITION PARTS FITTED. NEW 12V BATTERY IS FITTED INSTEAD OF THE 2 ORIGINAL 6V BATTERIES.  AND THOROUGHLY ROAD TESTED. HE MILEAGE WHEN THE ENGINE WAS REBUILT WAS 84924. O THIS V8 NEEDS DRIVING CAREFULLY TO RUN IT ALL IN AGAIN. OVERDRIVE WORKS A TREAT. ND SHE DRIVES VERY WELL. EELING POWERFULL. ITH A NICE GEARCHANGE. ND QUIET REAR AXLE. RAKES DISPITE HAVING NEW CORRECT PADS ARE EXCELLENT. V8 HAS GOOD OIL PRESSURE AND MAINTAINS A STEADY WATER TEMP ABOUT 1/3 UP THE GAUGE. ANS CUT IN AND OUT CORRECTLY. V8 WAS DRY STORED IN A VERY NICE DRY GARAGE FOR ITS SLUMBER AND ALL PARTS FITTED ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.

PAPERWORK.
