Evaluation: Restored in the late 1980s then placed in a private museum. Small dent in the right headlight. The paint is showing its age, plus some orange peel and a few scratches. Tidy underneath. Excellent interior. Better than a driver but not a show car, it’s a very rare MG, slightly more comfortable and luxurious than a T-Series car but no less charming.
Bottom Line: For weekend drives and the occasional tour or rally, this is a lot of car for the money and one of the very few cars in Monterey this year that is both truly cheap and usable. It’s also rare enough to stand out at any British car meet, but with a drivetrain lifted straight from the TD roadster, parts are easy to find. A great value.
