We have on offer an MGB part finished project car which has been off the road since the mid-1970s.

First owners were Bruce McLaren Motor Racing. Belvedere Works in Feltham, Middlesex.

Second entry on the original log-book is Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Ltd. Now moved to Foyle Trading Estate in Colnbook, Middlesex.

Second owner; Gordon McDowell owned the car from 1967 into the mid-1970s.

The car last being taxed and used in December 1975.

-

A letter from Teddy Mayer dated July 2003 confirms his recollection of the car.

 Apparently the car was painted Gulf Orange at that time, traces of orange and the original Chelsea grey remain on the bodywork.

-

Quite what the car was used for is unconfirmed. However it is understood Teddy Mayer's wife initially used the car, it then in time became a general works runabout.

Was it ever used in competition ????

This car has been part of a private collection for many years.

Purchased in a part restored condition having had new wings, new doors, new sills and floor pans fitted and then repainted, but very poorly in Tartan red.

Importantly, this is the original body-shell.

Two owners from new when last used on the road.

No signs at all of damage or any structural rust repair.

This car has remained in dry storage since 2003.

For sale "as-is".

The project is basically complete and to be supplied with a known good 5 bearing engine and rebuilt overdrive gearbox.

Factory hardtop in excellent condition.

Fitted wire wheels plus spare wheels and tyres.

I would say the car is as complete as you would want for competition preparation.

A very easy and straightforward project.

-

Has the original old style registration document.

A new style V5 registration document will need to be applied for once the restoration is completed.
