1968 MGC Restoration
« on: January 03, 2009, 03:04:31 PM »
My dad and I started in on her this week. She's now mostly stripped with the exception of the engine and a couple of gauges that have stumped my thinking. We're still waiting for the books to arrive with all the diagrams and such. We'll be selling it when we're finished if you know of anyone with any interest. On to some pictures:

Very nice!

I just found a little gem in my neighbor's garage.

It's a 1965 MG. He only showed it to me for a minute or two while we were chatting the other day, but I'm pretty sure it's a Midget and not a B.
It was parked in a dark garage under a cover, but apparently he'd done a complete restoration on it years ago and due to a back injury, he can't drive it anymore.
It's white with a red interior(I think) and looked great from what I could see.

I'm super interested in seeing it out in the light which I'm sure I'll convince him to do when the weather is nice. Unfortunately, I don't think that at 6'-7" there's any chance in hell I could fit in it.

Sorry about the thread-jack. You just don't see many of these anymore.  ;D

Thanks guys.

Andrew, these little MG's have a ton of leg room...kinda like a Mini Cooper. LOL. I'll sell you this one when we finish ;)

Dad had to travel out of town and we got a little backed up so the engine's still in, but I started in on the body work today. A bit more rust than expected. A dented panel might be getting replaced after all. I'm only half done sanding one side of the car. So far, it's in really good shape overall.
