Progress with an MGBGTV8 restoration
Roger Powell purchased this restoration project in February 2019 and has started examining the car ahead of a starting the serious work.

In his first report Roger Powell reports "Getting stuck into restarting the resto of this V8 abandoned in the 1980s having been rebuilt into a brand new V8 shell (with V8 body number) supplied direct from the factory. Originally Brooklands Green but now Tundra, I'm intending to return it to Brooklands Green over the next year or so. So far I've not come across anything to suggest this is anything other than a
brand new shell as claimed and all the unique V8 bits are there with numbers matching".

The rebuild continues with a stripdown - see the photo reports..
