This B
ritish icon was born in 1954 and still has the same engine and chassis, which were the 650th and 608th respectively, built in the now infamous TF 1500 series. The engine had approximately 50,000 miles on it before enduring a rebuild in 1976 by D&D Rebuilding Service Machine Shop in New Brighton, PA. The engine number is XPEG 1151, and the car number is 7308.

During the 1960’s it was sold to a doctor who enjoyed driving the car as it was meant to be driven. He later moved from the area and had it stored. In a short time the car was sold and the new owner had it repainted. He drove the car for a while but later disassembled it and sold it to an enthusiast living in Pennsylvania.

In the mid 1970’s the new owner completed a frame up restoration bringing this classic to its original condition. This time however, the color went from its original British Racing Green to black fenders and Mercedes Poppy Red body panels. The meticulous undertaking took two and a half years. The car was sold again and the new owner drove it sparingly. In the fall of 1989 with only 2,580 miles on a rebuilt engine, the car was purchased by the latest owner.

In November 1990 the car was taken to Boffo Motors in New Brighton, PA for additional work on the engine. There were issues that had not been addressed in the 1976 rebuild and by April 1991 all of them were rectified. With the exception of hardened valve seats being added due to the unavailability of leaded gas, the engine is now restored to its original status.

For the second time in the car’s history a restoration was needed and work began in November 2003. While at Boffo Motors, the paint was completely stripped. It was discovered that the metal doors, gas tank, and side door were inadequate and the decision was made to have them replaced. A deep brilliant exterior finish of MG red on the panels and glossy black fenders replaced the old paint. A time period correct aftermarket radio antenna was added for the Pioneer stereo sound. The old aluminum spokes were removed but saved. New chromed Dayton wire wheels and new tires were added which really stand out against the black fenders and MG red.

At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than just kick the tires, though: We fill your tires with nitrogen, road test (if the weather permits us here in Cleveland!) and clean it inside and out. We buff the paint using a three-step process immediately before it's taken away so that it gleams when it arrives. Every car we sell, from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be driven--get out there!

If you have any questions before, during or after the sale, do not hesitate to contact us. It's what we're here for! Call us at (440) 914-0000, write us at sales@motorcargroup.com or stop by and see the new shop at 6441 Davis Industrial Parkway, Solon OH 44139. We're 26 miles from Cleveland Hopkins Airport and we can pick you up when you come to inspect or purchase your car. We welcome any prospective buyers, their buyer's agents or inspectors from Monday through Friday during business hours, as well as evenings and weekends by appointment.
