I remember seeing a London Roadster for sale a while back that was originally sold by a Buick Dealer I think. It was red with a red interior. Fun cars where ever they came from!!!March 10, 2013 at 3:36 pm #255001
Larry Yes..mine is a perfect fit for my daily driving..do you know the origin of your LR?
It appears they may have been originally sold thru GM dealers? ?? jebarry2013-03-10 16:08:49March 11, 2013 at 4:41 am #255002Richard ShearParticipant
I sent the guy on ebay a message letting him know that LR was built for 8 yearsMarch 11, 2013 at 7:30 am #255003newkitmanParticipant
As a former Karmann Ghia owner, it’s not uncommon to see people murder the Ghia name. Also the really can really mess up spelling Volkswagen. But I digress….I think Fiberfab were only purchased directly from Fiberfab. Were any other of our not kit cars sold through dealerships?

Based on my research, there were several regional companies that sold FiberFab kits, and would either do builder assist, or build one for you. I don’t know if any would provide the running gear, but I know they’d help their customers find one…

I’ve always liked the Shay roadster, sold through Ford which has a lot of parts in common with our Ford based MG’s, (but it’s not an MG)

I agree.The Shay is a smart looking rideMarch 11, 2013 at 10:23 am #255007Larry MurphyParticipant
John , I got my LR from a used car dealer in Eden NC. He got it from a friend who bought it for his wife at the Charlotte Auto Fair . I do not know where it was sold originally.March 11, 2013 at 10:34 am #255008
LarryLuckily ..the previous owner in Lynchburg VA had kept all the documentation/paper work from the original owner and dealer for my LR..and thanks to all the info from everyone here in the forum I have learned a lot about our cars..I have to say I have become very attached to my MGTDr with all the trials and tribulations “we” have gone thru.Mine certainly isn’t a perfect reproduction but I love her as only a MGTDr owner could.cheers

Wow, I can’t believe all the smog crap is still on that engine in the Shay.
