Turns out my neighbor is even more car crazy than I am.
He is now willing to part with his LBC's.
Varied condition, none ready to drive.
I have dibs on the two Sprite roadsters.

Nothing "Modern", but if you need parts or want to build a close replica of an original Seven down to the BMC engine here is your chance at the donor you will need.

Let me know what you are looking for and make an offer.

If you weren't on the other side of the country, I'd be interested in some Spridget parts. Might want to get some more details and pictures and make a post on the MG Experience board.

I had thought of building a traditional Locost with an MG Midget drivetrain. Alas, I am in the middle of a bigger project right now, no room for storage, and dwindling time left on this side of the grass. I hope they find a good home that excludes the scrapper. :cheers:

I was very surprised at the quantity he has.
Plan is to go back and do a better inventory as I do not know how many have engine/trans in them.
Need to get some sort of privacy fence at home before negotiating to buy them all, if possible.
He may have unrealistic values on some of them.
I do want the two roadsters for sure, they can be converted to Bugeye fairly easily.
If I do get the whole pile I will inventory and sell most of them.
I expect there are enough parts for at least three to four complete roll-up window cars.
Interiors will be the hard part, these are sitting outside in the desert.
