As some of you may know, I have a large collection of parts and cars at a barn in Wetherby (Yorkshire)
Over the next few weeks/ months I will be clearing out the barn.
This will include lots of new and used parts for most models of Metro,Maestro, Montego and many other ARG/MGR cars.
(I cleared out a dealer just after the "fall"
Starting with the Metro's.
I will be keeping my Targa red Mk2 85 Metro Turbo, but the rest will be up for sale. (My Black Mk2 Turbo is already spoken for.)
My Targa Red Mk2 MG Metro and Silver Y plate Mk1 MG Metro are available as projects to be completed.
Silver Mk1: (I previous owner until November 2011)
As described in a previous thread on MOC, this needs lots of cosmetic work, and is currently MOT'd until late November this year.
However, the passenger front hydrogas valve snapped, and the suspension is down.
I have a new valve for it, and the means to re set the suspension , but other commitments means I have not had the time to sort it.
According to the 1st owner it had a recon engine at 65k miles and is now showing 105k miles.
Offers over £350 takes it away, and you will have the option to fix it here and pump up the suspension free.
Located at my house in Wiltshire.
(replacement panels in silver for ease of restoration are available at extra cost)
Targa Red Mk2 MG Metro:
This car is showing aproximately 50k miles, but has no history to back it up.
The front end panels were completely replaced for new, and paintwork rectified several years ago before going into storage.
It will likely need at least one door replacing. (spare panels in colour are available).
After coming out of storage it was found to have suffered in the inner wings due to water seapege into the building.
The majority of the work has been done, if not completed (will confirm).
It is on Metric rims, but a set of very good cross spokes can be made available at extra cost.
It has a mint herringbone interior.
Nearest to £500 gets it.
This Metro is at the Barn in Wetherby.
As well as parts, I have a new old stock Last of line Mk2 Shell. This is a high filler 3 door shell, ideal for rebuilding a high spec late model Austin Vp or MG Metro.
Also ideal for anyone rebuilding a metro cup car.
Serious Offers only!.
This is also at the Barn in Wetherby.
In addition to this Shell, I also have an excellent Mk1 Turbo shell, with has been restored to the highest standards at a great cost. It has also been dipped at spl(?) so is well protected from the usual rust issues we expect from our cars.
Due to roof damage caused at the dipping company, this will either have an "untreated" new roof panel already fitted, or supplied ready to fit.
This is currently residing in Cirencester, and only serious offers will be considered.
As the Black Turbo will be going on the wheels it arrived with(cross-spokes), I will have a straight set of 5 MK1 Turbo alloy wheels for sale fitted with new tyres(165/55/13), complete with centre caps and nut covers. As we all know the centres and nut covers are rarer than the alloys, and due to lack of availability the set will not be cheap, nor will they be split.
Price £350 OVNO
Having replaced the interior on the Black Mk2 for the correct period Marle Decco seats, I also have a pristine MK2 Herringbone Interior for sale.
It is unmarked and would be excellent for any Mid build MG metro restoration.
Thats it for now, my next visit north will be in the next few weeks, were I will take updated pictures of the Targa red Mk2 and the Mk2 Shell.
Transport can be arranged at my convenience for a reasonable fee.
