This MG has been in the family for it’s entire life in Newnan GA. It was removed from our barn around the year 2000 and sent out for restoration. As can be seen in the before pictures, it has always been in pretty good condition but underwent a “frame off” restoration and has not been used much since with the exception of a few Joy rides and some excercise runs. It is a 10 out of 10 and drives as nice as it looks. We are simply parting with things that we are no longer using. Comes with a zippered bag for storage and delivery can be arranged depending on where you live. Because of the prevalence of scam callers out there, please contact me through Auto Trader email and I’ll call you promptly. It has been appraised for more but I’d rather see it go quickly to a good home than squeeze every dime out of it.

This matching number car is equipped with all of its original major components, engine, head, transmission, chassis and body. They are only low mileage and original once! HISTORY OF THE 1962 JAGUAR: Adhering to Jaguar founder William Lyons maxim of "grace, pace and space," the Mk2 series set new standards of style, comfort, and, above all, performance. Presenting discerning buyers a luxurious, wood-trimmed alternative to a more conventional family car, and in a sportier package, it is rightfully known today as the worlds first sport sedan. For 1960, the 3.4 Saloon was officially renamed the Mk2 and was offered with an optional new 3.8 liter engine the same powerplant as the 1960 XK150 and the largest displacement the Mk2 would ever carry. A tachometer, limited-slip differential, four-wheel disc brakes, and four-speed transmission with overdrive were all standard. In road trim, the 220-horsepower Mk2 3.8 was capable of 125 miles per hour top speeds and zero to 60 times of just 8.5 seconds. These cars were equally impressive at long-distance racing and in 1961 broke four world records in the .

This 1972 Volkswagen dune buggy is the automobile distilled into pure fun. Sure, its still transportation, but this car was built to put a big grin on your face and nothing else. It offers lots of recent work, so its not only great looking but also ready to enjoy. We can all but guarantee youll be the only guy tooling around in one of these even though the look is instantly familiar. It is a Meyers Manx, which is the original VW dune buggy, although this is strictly a 2-seater thanks to the big stereo speaker box in the rear deck area. The look is familiar, of course, and the whole design is very professional and well-executed so nothing looks sub-standard. Repainted two years ago, the fiberglass is in good condition with no major signs of age and that brilliant green paint offers a great gloss thats quite appropriate to something of this vintage. This is motoring distilled down to its barest essence, so there isnt much chrome, but it does have a bunch of lights up front and that big, upright windshield that is framed by the built-in roll cage. In back, the VW Beetle engine and its wild exhaust system becomes an integral part of the overall look and its fascinating to watch this sucker run down the road. More minimalism inside where fresh Procar bucket seats and RJS harnesses keep you in place. The vinyl upholstery wears well and is weather-resistant enough for its alfresco duties in the open VW. Hop over the side of the tub and its easy to settle in behind the wheel and youll find that the driving position is more early British roadster than German economy car, and with those big pontoon fenders out there, you can clip apexes more easily than you ever thought possible. Creature comforts are few and thats entirely the point here; anything that wasnt necessary for the job of having fun was omitted. That means no windshield wipers, no heater, no windows, but it does have that kickin stereo system that works well even when youre screaming along the beaches. The VWs original gauge pod is joined by a Sun Super Tach, as well as a Grant GT steering wheel and a toggle switch for the headlights. Sisal floor coverings are institutional and easy to maintain, which is this cars mantra. VWs air-cooled flat four needs no introduction, and this 1600 cc unit provides plenty of power for the flyweight dune buggy. Painted bright green to match the bodywork, the engine is mostly stock to keep it reliable, although its nicely dressed with a bit of chrome. The exotic exhaust system is from EMPI and includes the standard muffler shown here as well as a stack setup for really running off-road. The Beetles 4-speed manual transmission and floor pan made the transition intact and with the low center of gravity, handling is adept. Obviously this was never someones winter beater, so the underside remains in very good order with no glaring trouble spots. Lots of finned aluminum helps with the air-cooled engine at seed and youll undoubtedly find that this car loves to play. The suspension, transmission, and rear differential were rebuilt and the undercarriage is protected with a light dusting of undercoating so you dont have to worry about going into the rough. Simple steel wheels with baby moon hubcaps are the ideal 60s look on a Manx and carry sharply staggered 175/65/15 front and 235/70/15 rear blackwall radials. A party on wheels, this VW dune buggy recalls an era when the Beach Boys were on the radio and cars were all about having fun. Call today!
In the early 90s, Japanese automakers pulled out all the stops and built some of the most impressive sports cars of the period. Near the top of the list was the Nissan 300ZX, whose shark-like looks, impressive handling, and user-friendly nature make it a great choice for affordable fun today. This 1994 Nissan 300ZX convertible is a fine example with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission, so its ready for top-down fun this summer. The 300ZX looks even better as a convertible than as a hatchback, and the rock-solid platform doesnt seem to mind being topless one bit. Shiny black paint makes the sporty ragtop look like a million bucks, emphasizing the long, low shape and with just 67,511 original miles, this one is remarkably well preserved. Nissans paint quality was quite good and its held up reasonably well over the past two decades. Its not perfect, of course, and there are signs of use and age, but this car will still get peoples attention as it cruises through traffic and a professional buff job and a visit to the paintless dent guy would take it up a notch. The headlights, which are one of the Zs most distinctive features, remain clear and bright (someone added aftermarket clear marker lights that look trick), and the flush-fitting tonneau cover gives it a sleek profile when the tops down. Theres little doubt that this car was built by and for drivers when you climb inside. The black leather buckets are firm and grippy, holding you in place during spirited driving but remaining comfortable for long-distance hauls, too. The dash is low, giving excellent sight lines and in typical Japanese fashion, all the controls are at your fingertips on short stalks or pods that line the outer edges of the instrument panel. Entertainment and HVAC sweep down the center stack and end in the shiny shifter for the highly-desired 5-speed manual transmission. As Nissans flagship, everything was standard in the Z, particularly the convertible, including A/C, power windows and locks, and a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo system. The leathers in excellent shape, with only the drivers seat showing any notable wear, the carpets are extremely nice, and theres a bit of storage behind the seats as well as a somewhat useful trunk out back. A black canvas top has an impressive fit with great weather seals that make this convertible close up like a coupe and that roll hoop gives it impressive rigidity that you can feel. The naturally-aspirated 3.0-liter DOHC V6 was the mid-level engine in the 300ZX, and the only one available in the convertible. With 222 horsepower on tap, performance is energetic, even today, and it makes a wonderful guttural growl at full throttle. These engines proved to be virtually indestructible in the real world, and while they respond well to modifications, this one is completely stock. It starts quickly and easily, just as youd expect from Nissan, idles perfectly, and actually pulls down decent fuel economy as long as youre not stomping on the loud pedal all the time. Handling is agile, but they gave the convertible a softer edge, so its more of a grand touring machine, albeit with powerful brakes and an all-independent suspension. Attractive 16-inch alloy wheels still look stylish and wear 225/50/16 performance radials. A fast, fun, reliable convertible that you dont see very often and still ready to be your daily driver.

The Datsun Z cars put Japan on the performance car map, and this 1977 Datsun 280Z 2+2 tells you all you need to know about why these are such special vehicles. With an unusual copper metallic paint job, a beautifully preserved interior, and long-term ownership history, this is exactly the kind of car that you can enjoy today and let it appreciate tomorrow. The long nose styling of the Z car never seems to go out of fashion, and when combined with a sophisticated and elegant color like this, it creates a unique blend of performance and luxury that was found on cars like the Jaguar E-Type. The paint is original, and with that in mind its in fantastic shape. Not perfect, mind you, but for being 40 years old, its pretty impressive with a soft shine that is exactly what youd expect. Typical of the Japanese, the fit and alignment of the body panels are excellent, and for a car from the 70s, this one fits together amazingly well. Details like the chrome bumpers are in original condition, and their shiny surface suggests that this car has always been properly maintained. Badges, the front grille, the rear valence with distinctive Z taillights, all of it looks far younger than the cars age would suggest. The two-tone 2+2 interior gives the Z a lot more space, and while you wont want to put two adults in back for a cross-country trip, it greatly expanded the Zs practicality. The front buckets are well preserved, with no cracks or splits, and showing virtually zero wear even on the lighter surfaces. With its distinctive dashboard design, with speedo and tach in front of the driver and three auxiliary gauges mounted up high in the center, the Zs interior has been the prototype for all Japanese sports cars for decades. In this car, the dash pad, the door panels, and even the rear hatch area are exemplary, showing no signs of sun damage which is so common on these cars. A/C (needs to be serviced) and an AM/FM/cassette stereo are included, so theres no reason not to get in and have fun. Power comes from an upgraded 2.8 liter inline-six, which makes wonderful sounds akin to the great British roadsters of yore, not to mention all that turbine-smooth torque. The 280Z uses fuel injection, which looks complicated but is extremely reliable and delivers improved performance and economy. Showing signs of proper maintenance throughout its life, this Z fires up the first time every time and pulls cleanly, with a long list of recent maintenance items including the fuel pump, fuel injectors, hoses, clutch master and slave cylinder, a new muffler, and a re-sealed gas tank. The 4-speed manual transmission is wonderful to row through the gears, making this Z a fantastic car to run down your favorite twisty road. The all-independent suspension is agile, and none of its handling prowess is diminished by the added length of the 2+2 body. The original alloys are in very good condition, with no curb rash or corrosion, and they wear a set of 195/60/14 performance radials. In the same family since 1980, this very well preserved survivor is an affordable way to enjoy a vintage sports car thats also surprisingly practical. The Zs day is fast approaching, and clean examples like this one will continue to be in demand. Call today!
When gas prices spiked to more than $5/gallon in 2006 and 2007, cars like this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CDT were suddenly red hot. With durable and thrifty diesel engines, handsome good looks, and a bit of collector appeal, diesel Mercedes-Benz automobiles can be great collector cars or awesome daily drivers. And given the way this handsome coupe looks and drives, you might just want to drive it every chance you get. Wearing a period-appropriate AMG body kit and a handsome gold paint job, this 300CDT is straight out of the 80s. But thats a good thing, because these cars are virtually indestructible and are arguably the last Mercedes-Benzes built by engineers rather than the marketing department. Styling is conservative, but the body kit makes it look sporting and the coupe is vastly more desirable than the more common sedans and wagons (and rarer, to boot!). Thats original paint and showcases the quality workmanship that the three-pointed star represents, because it still shines up nicely and looks great. Its not perfect, of course, but its quite presentable and the car still has that rock solid feel for which Mercedes-Benzes are famous. Someone has obviously loved this car all its life and it hasnt spent any time in the snow or salt, so the bodywork should last as long as the engine... which can be many, many years yet. These are VERY hard to kill. Inside its typical Mercedes-Benz luxury with supportive bucket seats that are still in great shape with leather upholstery thats as tough as iron yet all day comfortable. The giant steering wheel and simple instruments with big, white letters are trademarks that were part of the Mercedes mystique for decades and it all works properly. The wood paneling is real wood and the carpets are plush to help control noise from the diesel up front. It includes a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo and features like cold factory A/C, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a sunroof overhead. The doors close with a heavy THUNK and going down the road the car feels indestructible, so even with its modest performance, it still represents the very top-of-the-line. The back seat is comfortable enough for a pair of adults and the spacious trunk will carry just about anything you need on a long road trip. Theres also an amplifier for the stereo and a CD changer. The 3.0 liter inline-5 diesel engine is legendary around the world for its reliability. As long as theres fuel and air, itll run. It looks complicated, but its not, and with a little experience, you should be able to keep it in top condition for many tens of thousands of miles. It shows about 177,000 miles, but in Mercedes-Benz diesel terms, thats barely broken-in, so dont let the numbers scare you. And youll be shocked by the fuel economy on this one, turning long highway drives into an endurance test between the car and your bladder. Ride quality is German firm, brakes are effective, and it cruises serenely at high speeds without any real effort at all. Theres a bit of the usual diesel clatter from under the hood, but it quiets down at speed and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Underneath, you can see theres no evidence of this car ever being rusty or wrecked and it sits on 80s cool 5-spoke wheels and 225/50/16 performance radials. Nicely documented with the factory manuals and lots of receipts, this is an unusual find thats affordable, practical, stylish, and sooner or later it will be very much in demand. Call today!
Movie star looks on a Wal-Mart budget is the magic of the R107 Mercedes-Benz SL. Cars like this 1979 450SL convertible pack all kinds of charisma, great performance, and bulletproof hardware, they look like they should cost a million bucks, yet are remarkably affordable. If you want to get noticed in a car, this is probably the most affordable way to do it! Hard to beat a yellow 2-seat convertible and even conservative Mercedes-Benz put bright paint colors on their color chart in 1979 knowing that some folks just wouldnt have it any other way. Its actually more of a cream, and given the impressive quality of these cars, it is quite possible that this one is still wearing its original paint. Sure, it might show a few signs of its four decades of life, but theres absolutely no need for a repaint if you just want to drive and have some fun. Most importantly, this is a southern car so it hasnt been slogging through winter weather for years and as a result the doors slam with that precision that you almost cant find today. Americans have grown accustomed to the heavy rubber bumpers so they give the car a substantial look and remain in very good shape, as does the rest of the bright trim, and a pinstripe accentuates the clean styling. The tan leather interior is a fantastic upgrade over the usual MB-Tex vinyl that was standard equipment in these cars. Again, its unlike Mercedes to be so flashy, but it totally works in this 2-seater. The seat covers have some stretching but remain quite inviting, while parts like the door panels and dash pad are in very good condition and the deep, plush carpets havent faded in the sun, another very good sign. A lot of woodgraining gives it an upscale look, including the center console that is actually real wood. These cars came loaded with every feature they could think of in 1979, including power windows and locks, cold A/C, and even a rear defroster in the removable hardtop. Theres also a neatly installed AM/FM/CD stereo head unit to replace the original Blaupunkt unit, and its a big improvement. The trunk is reasonably spacious and beautifully finished with matching carpets and the car includes both a 3-year-old canvas convertible top and a matching cream hardtop. The 4.5-liter V8 engine really needs no introduction. Powering Mercedes-Benz automobiles for a decade, it is smooth and torquey, and if properly maintained, will run practically forever. This one starts easily and idles with a precise mechanical feeling thats quite different than the isolation chambers were used to today, but no less pleasant. Fuel injection gives it sharp throttle response and the flexible power curve makes it fast without feeling like its working too hard and it comes with maintenance records and the all-important timing chain upgrade, so you can buy with confidence. A 3-speed automatic transmission seems a little syrupy at first, but youll find that the faster you go, the better it seems to work. In fact, that goes for the suspension and brakes, too, which were bred for the autobahn and make this car supremely competent on American roads. The exhaust has a pleasant bubbly V8 sound and those wheels from a later SL give it a distinctively sporty look and are wrapped in new 215/60/15 radials. These cars remain perennial best-sellers here at Streetside Classics because they represent performance, style, and value, and this one is no exception. Call today!
You wont find a more traditionally British car than this lovely 1994 Jaguar XJS drophead coupe. Painted high-visibility bright red, it shows just 35,706 original miles and has been a pampered toy since the day it was delivered. Look at the price, then decide whether some Old World luxury is just what youve been looking for. The XJS spent the last few years of its life evolving, with the pinnacle of that evolution being this convertible. The cars look was still striking, and make no mistake, this is a big, impressive car in every way. The sizzling red paint isnt subtle, but then again, the guy who originally bought this gorgeous ragtop didnt really care. It comes with a shine that only comes from that magic formula theyve perfected over the decades, and it still looks quite good today. Gaps are quite good, fitted by guys who understood that building a car with the leaping cat ornament was a privilege, and the drop-top does nothing to diminish the XJ-Ss flowing lines. The Euro-style headlights, body-colored bumpers, and flip-up gas cap are all in excellent condition, accented by a few well-chosen chrome accents. Like the Mercedes-Benz SL models, this is one affordable A-list celebrity that will make all your neighbors think youve hit the lottery. Nobody does leather like the British, and the top-of-the-line Jaguar is filled with aromatic hides that are sinfully soft and artfully designed. The bucket seats show almost no wear, again reinforcing the fact that this car has led a very sheltered existence, and the deep pile carpets feel luxurious even if youre not wearing $1000 driving moccasins. That burled walnut on the dash is real burled walnut, and its obvious that the Jaguar artisans went the extra mile to prove that the tactile sensations inside this car were as important as ergonomics, and perhaps more so. The gauges are simple and clearly marked, and it comes standard with just about every feature you could imagine in 1994, including climate control, power windows, cruise control, and a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo with a CD changer in the trunk. The 2+2 model obviously includes a back seat, but its really more of a beautifully upholstered storage area unless you have little kids or friends with short legs. The multi-layer convertible top seals up as tightly as a coupe and folds with the touch of a button, stashing itself with a very British-looking stack behind the seats. Even the trunk is beautifully upholstered and will carry a surprising amount of gear despite the presence of a full-sized spare and battery. While most folks think of an antiquated V12 when they see the XJS, the engine you really want is the 4.0 liter inline-six found in this car. Several hundred pounds lighter and making 90% as much horsepower, it transforms the XJS from boulevardier to agile back-road companion. Of course, thats the whole point of a Jaguar, right? The engine is completely unmodified and has been properly serviced, and by 1994, with Fords help, the old electrical gremlins had been permanently banished. Its backed by a quick-shifting automatic transmission and a supple yet athletic suspension that always seems to be on its toes. Powerful disc brakes live behind those handsome chrome BBS-style alloys, which wear 235/60/15 Michelin Pilot radials. I cant rightly explain why these cars are selling for tiny fractions of their original sticker prices, but the net result is that you can get an A-list European convertible for the price of something made in Korea.
