1987 MG Metro with Turbo Engine For Sale

Very reluctant sale as just too many projects. Last owner had car for almost 30 years and spent a lot of money it. At the start of his ownership he converted the MG Metro to a Turbo by buying a scrap Turbo car and using the parts from it. Turbo logbook is also with car as well as non turbo logbook.. Large documentation file and car handbooks, old MOTs back to 1991. File shows an engine rebuild by Minispeed (2012). Car has covered about 5, 000 miles since. Mileage is not warranted but is believed to be genuine. I have fitted a rebuilt starter and correct Avonbar Racing low pressure Metro turbo fuel pump along with new pressure regulator. Battery is less than a year old. Two new front tyres were also fitted. Also new brake shoes and wheel cylinders at the back although I have a suspicion one is leaking again (pattern parts!). NOS one with car. CV gaiter (as on MOT history} has been changed.

Custom made stainless steel exhaust fitted (receipt in documentation)

Headlining is sagging around sunroof as picture and bolster on drivers seat is worn through, apart from that interior is in reasonable condition for age.

Spare alarm system with car, one fob case broke and that was the only way I could find another. Door locks removed for keyless entry and fitted with immobilizer.

Car has had a lot of welding carried out (what Metro hasn’t!). The welding appears to have been done to a reasonable standard but is not very neat. Front door pillars have been plated as well as new sills, new wings, front panel.

Back valance is holed but I have a NOS back valence for it and also the closing panel behind it.

Carburettor has been rebuilt but I have had a lot of issues with fuel contamination causing either the float to stick open or shut. New float and needle has been fitted but problem has reoccurred due to lack of use.

Car runs well and drives but will need trailering away.

Car is sold as seen. If you do not view car before purchase it is assumed you are fully aware of the likely problems with buying a 30 year old classic car. The car will require work to make it roadworthy.

Many of these cars have been broken for the engine which is a shame as they drive very well and have a character all their own.

The MG F-Type Magna was the first six-cilinder engined sportscar from Abingdon-on-Thames. There is no doubt that it was a genuine sportscar with the archetypal straight six engine. It came with various body options and with its long bonnet and raked radiator grille certainly looked the part! With an undeniably smooth engine ...
