CHROME BUMPER TAX EXEMPT CAR FOR £7995.

This beautiful MG BGT with the distinctive registration of MAO 325L was first registered 1/8/1972. This was the only year that BL painted MGB's in the very striking colour of Aqua. The last owner had the car for 12 years and looked after it extremely well. It has had a new battery, new leather interior, carpets, Mota-Lita steering wheel and wooden gear knob, chrome Rostyle wheels, elec. washers, a heated rear window, good quality Kenwood radio/CD player with roof aerial and 2 door mirrors fitted. In the history you will find 16 old MOT's going back to 1989 and an invoice for a replacement engine with an unleaded cylinder head fitted. Being a 72 car it is road tax exempt. It has a fresh MOT till April 2019 with no advisories and is ready for the summer. The engine shows very good oil pressure and feels very strong when driven. The gearbox has overdrive fitted and is also in fine working order.

1996 MGF. ONLY 58OOO MILES FROM NEW. RED SOFT TOP READY FOR FUN AND ALL FOR £1895


This great little MGF (P858 JHL) was first registered 08/08/1996 so is now 22 years old but has only done 58k miles. This can be traced via the old MOT's. The car seems to have spent all it's life in the Bath/Somerset area. Being over 20 years old you can get very cheap insurance and the spares for these cars are readily available and very good value for money. The Flame Red paintwork is very good and the interior has stood the test of time well. The MGF's are great little sports cars and are amazing value for money. I think they will go up in value soon as all old MG's have over the last few years. This car has a long MOT till October 2018 and is ready to go.  The engine and gearbox all work as they should and the car is very nippy. Bright red, soft top, alloy wheels and a good stereo system. What more could you want for some fun in the sun. I have personally driven 2,500 miles in this car without a problem.

1962 MGA 1600 MK II COUPE. MULTIPLE CONCOURS AND BEST IN SHOW WINNER. STUNNING CAR. FULL BODY OFF REBUILD. £36,995.

This wonderful car is simple stunning. It is one of the last MGA's built and was first registered 4th July 1962. Chassis number is GHD2/107950 and it is still on its original registration number of 1193 AW. The car was purchased by the current owner 17 years ago in 2001 as a restoration project and over the next 5 years was subject to an exacting rebuild. The body was taken of the chassis and both were fully restored and painted in the best colour of Iris Blue. The engine, gearbox, suspension, brakes and all the running gear were rebuilt to a very high standard before all the components were meticulously put back together. It would be impossible to list every part used as there are so many but the history file has invoices for over £10,000 in parts alone. Add another £10,000 for the bodywork, paint and labour costs and you have a total cost of £20,000. That was 15 years ago so you could probably add another 50% to £30,000 for a similar restoration today. The car remains in fantastic condition and the pictures speak for themselves. You need to come and see the car in the flesh if you are interested in buying the car. The carpets, red interior, boot area and particularly the under bonnet area are all exceptional. The car comes with the history file, owners handbook and the original buff log book. This car looks and drives better than new.

RPE 459E was first sold to a Mr. May of Egham on 25th July 1967. The large history file shows on the original green log book and later invoices only 5 owners in total over the next 50 years. The car is showing 15,000 miles on the speedo and this is the mileage since the car was restored. The car has been very well looked after over the years and the long term owner from 1984 - 2010 a Mr. Holding upgraded the car in the 90's with a 1275cc engine, 5 speed gearbox and servo assisted brakes. These upgrades added more performance and cruising speed with better braking. The wood frame was replaced at this time and all the work was carried out by the specialists at the Morris Minor Centre. The car was also treated to a new stainless steel exhaust system, suspension rebuild, new steering, brakes, fuel tank, chassis rebuild, new wings and a repaint in Smoke Grey. Since then the car received even more work by Mr. Holding in 2009 when the car had new pistons (now 1298cc) and an unleaded cylinder head was fitted. It also had new hubs, servo, brake master, trunnions, radiator, alternator, steering column and engine electrics. The next owner Miss. Loveys had the car from 2010 -201 and continued the maintenance on the car before selling to the last owner Mrs. Ogle. In the last 2 years she has had the car serviced twice and had new brake shoes, battery and shock absorber fitted. With the mechanical upgrades fitted this car drives very well and has a good turn of speed for a Minor. The paintwork is now a little tired but is perfectly usable as it is. The underside is very solid and the car has just passed an MOT with no advisories. The interior is very clean and a nice place to be with the addition of both front and rear inertia seat belts, a good quality CD/radio stereo hidden behind a wooden panel, electric aerial, oil pressure gauge and a water temp gauge. An ideal car to use and enjoy as it is and gradually improve as time goes by.
