Registration Number: DCY 668C Chassis Number: TBA
This fully road legal and historically registered MG is the only one of its kind. Restored in 2004 from a bare chassis, it has been treated to a ground up restoration with significant performance improvements. These include: an engine rebuild, rebuilt twin Su carburettors, rebuilt front and rear suspension and brake system, new spark plugs, dizzy cap, ignition leads and coil. Increased coolant capacity comes in the form of a Kenlow fan and re-conditioned radiator.
Finished in metallic British Racing Green with a reupholstered red interior, eighty per cent of the original aluminium body panels have been fitted and fabricated using stainless steel rivets left unpainted for effect.
