It has been a long time since I’ve posted an update for this particular car, and even if you follow my social media channels you may not be familiar with it, as it has been in storage. At the time that this little MG arrived in my car time my intention was to modify it and fit a large V8, which is now no longer the case. After nearly four years of owning the car I have decided (again) to stop neglecting it and actually get it on the road (albeit without modifying it – yet). Fortunately we already have most of the parts from a few years ago when I was supposed to take it on a banger rally with friends. It isn’t perfect but it is a reasonably solid little car that shouldn’t need too much work to get it to pass an MOT and be back on the road. After that point I’ll see about what sort of modifications I’d like to carry out. The original engine is very sweet and fired up with no issues after being sat for a couple of years, but I can’t ignore the allure of a similarly aged twin-cam….
The car is now on its own dedicated two poster until I get around to fixing it up in the new year, and for once I’ll hopefully be doing all of the work myself. I’m no mechanic so it should be an interesting experiment and hopefully I won’t do more harm than good. If anyone has any good suggestions for modifying an old MG in the future you’re more than welcome to tweet or email them to me. Some of you will also be happy to hear that this car won’t be painted yellow whilst in my care.
You can watch the walk around video below to see the current condition of the car.
