Long term V8 Register
member seeks to purchase from a fellow enthusiast a Factory V8, Condition 1, chrome
bumper car which is close to the original specification but with a sunroof. You
may be assured that your car will go to a good home. As a long term MGV8 enthusiast
I wish to purchase from an owner who, like me, cares about the future of the car
as much as its past. I am happy to accept a car subtly or tastefully modified
including leather upholstery. Colour must be unchanged from the Factory original
and preferably Glacier White, Black Tulip or Teal Blue, but any colour would be
fine for the right car. In the first instance please feel free to call for a chat
together. Alternatively email or me to give the expectation of price together
with a general exchange of other information. Please, no dealers. I am in Norfolk
but will happily travel anywhere within the UK to view a car. A comprehensive
history file that includes details of body and mechanical repairs or upgrades
would be invaluable as would any other documentation regarding the history. Also
any information on the availability, or likely availability, of a good MGBGTV8
would be very much appreciated. Discretion assured. Contact: Angus Munro. 170112

suspension upgrades including Spax dampers and a blueprinted engine producing
182 BHP at the flywheel with a 5 speed SD1 gearbox. The upgraded trim has been
partially replaced and needs finishing. The Webasto roof is waterproof, as recently
tested on this year's New Forest V8 Tour and new tyres were fitted last year as
were two 12v batteries. The bodywork is very good, testament to the earlier paintwork
and the engine and drive train are superb. A comprehensive and very detailed record
of the restoration is included as well as invoices for the work carried out under
my ownership, which includes a new fuel pump, headlights, radio, seats and door
cards. Work required: nearside door needs rehanging, offside window needs adjustment,
interior trim needs completion and wheels need balancing. £14,500

sale at auction - low mileage chrome bumper Factory MGBGTV8 in Tundra - SOLD
Tundra 1118 (1974) with only 19,642 miles and owned by
a former V8 Register member, is being sold at Classic Car Auctions on Saturday
24th September at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre CV311XN . Details say it
"has been maintained regardless of cost, it has never been restored but simply
regularly maintained and cared for on an ongoing basis. Sensible upgrades include
a twin 12v battery conversion and a stainless steel exhaust system. The MOT test
was recently passed with no advisories". From the auction listing it appears
to be Condition 2 Plus with an auction estimate of £12,000 to £15,000.
The vendor has since clarified the mileage is in fact "about 119,000"
and not 19,642. 160828 Auction

concours condition; rebuild started in March 2013 and was completed in August
2014. All the restoration work carried out by Halls Garage at Bourne, mileage

the Show at MGOC Northern National event. A full photo record of the rebuild along

reluctant sale at considerably less than the rebuild cost for a car. Nothing needs
doing except driving it. Offers around £31,750. 160815

MOT to April 2016, zero VED with "Historic" road tax exemption. The
Sports Car Classics magazine featured this car in 2003/2004 in a special "V8
Power" article, including detailed descriptions of the very comprehensive
"virtually as new" restoration works carried out on this "Condition
1+" car. The present owner bought this car immediately after reading this
article. To read a copy of this "V8 Power" article. There have been
two significant restoration phases: the first around 1983/4 to rebuild the car
into a new BMC factory made (1980) body shell (these last factory made shells
had far superior anti-corrosion treatment than earlier ones) and the second restoration
took place in 1997-2003 and was fully comprehensive as described in the above
article, with about everything being inspected and refurbished/replaced as required.
It has covered 10,273 miles since this restoration. Extensive records (invoices)
for these restoration works are available. In summary the significant/major works
include: replaced body shell (CB) and a subsequent body shell strip/refinish and
repaint; engine stripped down, inspected and refurbished as necessary by a Rover
V8 engine specialist company; brakes and suspension rebuilt; exhaust system reverted
to cast iron manifolds; electrical systems and fully reworked interior with leather
seats and new carpet etc.; and much more. The major supplier for genuine MG parts
was V8 Conversions of Farnborough, Kent who have continued to supply parts to
the present owner, these included: engine immobiliser/keyless entry; electric
window lifts, Lumenition electronic ignition; replacement alternator and starter.
Also new Firestone tyres fitted, as may have been on the car when new. Price:
£15,500 for a car ready to go anywhere at any time. Definitely a Condition
1+ car. 150921

Wanted - Exceptional original Factory MGBGTV8 - car
found & purchased|
I am looking for a genuine Condition 1 or
Condition 2 low mileage GT V8 which is mostly the original specification or slightly
improved. The bodywork, interior and mechanicals should be excellent and I would
prefer a late chrome bumper model with a sunroof. I am now retired and need a
car that my wife will be comfortable in for weekends away. I have recently joined
the MG Car Club and am a genuine MG enthusiast who wants to buy a much cherished
car from another member who has decided to relinquish his pride and joy. I promise
to give the car a very good home! Please email your photos, specification and
what you would like for the car.
- Exceptional original Factory MGBGTV8 - Car now
found in New Zealand|
I am the proud owner of two Concours standard
Spridgets, a 1971 Austin Sprite and a 1973 MG Midget, both of which I treasure.
However I would like to purchase an MGBGTV8 at which point my wife informs me
that one of the Spridgets will have to go! I am looking for a genuine Condition
1 very low mileage V8 which is close to original specification and in an unmolested
state. The bodywork and mechanicals should be commensurate with a Condition 1
rated car. I appreciate that whilst such a car would initially be more expensive
to purchase, long term ownership costs should be considerably lower as I expect
to have an annual mileage of only circa 3,000 miles. I know I have set very stringent
search criteria but as a genuine MG enthusiast and fellow MG Car Club member (not
a Trader) understandably I only want the best! A chrome bumper car would be preferred
but I would consider a truly exceptional car with rubber bumpers. Although some
colours would have an attraction I do not wish to limit my search by this criteria
at this stage. If possible I would like to purchase from a fellow enthusiast.
In the first instance please email photos, specification and expectation of price.

MGBGTV8 Chrome bumper factory car - car found
and purchased in Northern Ireland|
I am an MG Car Club member and
a long-time MGB GT fan having owned a wire wheel BGT in British Racing Green in
the 1970s. Family circumstances forced the sale of the car and I have hankered
after another ever since. However, I would now like a little more power than the
1800 engine and a V8 seems the obvious choice. I am looking for a car in good
condition, preferably category 1, in Damask Red, Teal Blue or Glacier White with
an extensive service history and without a sun roof. Limited garage space combined
with my age and lessening agility makes a car in good condition a necessity. The
days of engine removal and bodywork repair are now behind me. I would prefer to
buy from a private seller rather than from a dealer or by auction. If you are
a MG enthusiast who would like to sell your cherished car to a like-minded enthusiast,
please give me a ring or email. I live in the Midlands but distance would be no
object for the right car. 150311

Webasto sunroof. A true classic British thoroughbred with looks and 120+ MPH performance

groans and returns good MPG with use of the smooth-engaging overdrive. MOT expires
April 2015. Bodywork, paint finish, interior, chrome and appendages all in very
good condition. The only non-standard extras are the fitment of electric windows
which work fine and Luminition electronic ignition, which is also very good. When
the revs start to rise and the pace quickens, a stainless exhaust gives the car
a very pleasant howl, while recent fitment of a new servo ensures excellent breaking
performance, as and when you need it. Four new Continental Eco-Contact tyres as
recommended by the Register provide superb grip and added ride comfort. Has had
two new 6v batteries fitted only recently. A full history file of bills and receipts,
plus photos of the restoration confirms the history and provenance. Also supplied
with a Heritage Certificate. A sound future investment as the market is now waking
up to recognising these cars for their rarity and classic British appeal. Price

rebuilt as a chrome bumper conversion with a full body nut and bolt restoration
in the late 1990s. It has the more modern 3.9 RV8 engine (3895cc) pushing out
200bhp at the flywheel with a stainless steel exhaust and it performs as expected.
The push button start always fires up the engine and I have just put in a new
high performance Optima battery. I have had the car for four years now and have
only driven it in the summer months on dry runs. The MOT renewal is 20th July
2014 and it's taxed until the end of October 2013. Excellent condition, including
the body and all the bright work. New tyres on 15" Minilite wheels with up
rated suspension and brakes give the car a great ride. A 14" Motolita steering
wheel, leather seats, new carpets and a five-speed gearbox make it a real pleasure
to drive. £POA. 130812
Car location: Gloucestershire.

It was built in 1990 by Mark Gamble at BMH using a new

Engineering. The car has covered just over 26,000 miles and is in very good condition.

an ordinary MGB, apart from its RV8 bonnet and prototype styled front end, but
its performance is far from ordinary. It comes with a comprehensive history file
and documents relating to its ownership with BMH and Rover Group. I am only selling
this car as I need the room. The last time I used it was in 2010 and it is now
on SORN. It will be given a new 12 months MOT for the new owner. This is a genuine
works development car with documented history. I am open to sensible offers around
