1993 MG RV8 – D19 MGR
Purchased in London in 2001 this is one of only 11 cars in Flame Red know to be in existence.
It is the second RV8 that I have owned, the first being in British Racing Green which is now owned by my son.
Both have been a delight to own and drive. D19 MGR has now completed 26000 miles in it’s 15 year life and is in original condition.
It is used for holidays as well as club runs and always attracts attention both at MG events and from the general public - mainly because of it’s striking red colour.
1958 Magnette ZB – ORX 470
36000 ZA/ZB Magnette's were produced between 1953 and 1958 of which around 800 cars are known to have survived worldwide.
ORX 470 was first registered in January 1958 and purchased in Norfolk in 2003.The car was driven back to Yorkshire having been ‘restored’
but not to the standard that I would have liked. Having assessed it’s condition [we thought] the decision was made to further upgrade the car.
In the event ORX 470 was stripped back to a rolling chasis and then commenced replacement of a number of body panels followed by a bare metal respray,
change of colour from Birch to Twilight Grey, all brightwork rechromed, renovation of the interior including new headlining as well as overhaul of the braking and suspension !!
A two year project. The car was returned to the road in 2005 and has been used regularly since that time.
