Just got this note from a friend so I thought I would pass it along. Note that this car is not mine nor do I know anything more about it than what is listed here. Seems like a great deal to me though! If I didn’t already have two projects cars, plus our normal daily drivers, I would be keeping this one to myself.
It’s finally time! After going back & forth for quite a while, I have decided I have too many cars and not enough time, so I am putting my MG 1100 up for sale. The car is a 4-door 1964 US-spec. model in Connaught Green w/Dove Grey interior. I am the 3rd owner. The first owner used the car from new. The second owner bought it as a parts car for his 1100, then realized it was a much better car than his & stored it until I bought it in 1999.
This car is an excellent candidate for a daily driver, or for a rolling restoration.
The paint is really good. The body needs no structural repair, but has some dings and dents from storage, and does need some repair work on the front valence. The interior, with the exception of the A & B pillar and cantrail trim, which need replacing, is superb. Included in the sale are spare rear seat cushions and door cards. New carpets (from the UK) made to fit. The original green rubber floor mats (& what’s left of the rubber mats that covered the inner sills) are included in the sale.
– New Parts
– Tires (Dunlop – x5)

The engine and gearbox run great, but are not the originals. The carbs are the original ones.

I’m looking for $2500 or best offer, and am willing to try to help out with delivery/collection arrangements.
I’m also selling my 1971 Rover 2000 TC (one of only 222 made). It’s in extremely good shape – runs well but needs a tune-up, no rust, etc. Not yet advertised because it needs a bath & pictures taken. It’s one of the 222 “Federal” TC’s imported by Rover right before they pulled out of the market in ’71.
The car is in Columbia, South Carolina. Contact Jim Cumberland at email@example.com for more information.
If you are unfamiliar with the MG 1100, Austin America and other members of the ADO16 family, also known as the BMC 1100s, check out the MG 1100 site, the Austin America register, or the 1100 Club. These are really great cars and in many ways can be considered “grown up” Minis. They share basically the same engine, transmission, and suspension but are a bit bigger and often have a few more creature comforts.
