    Is MG Magic out of business?  Is there any source for parts for a Duchess?  Does anyone have a new or used radiator shell for sale?  Can a damaged shell be repaired and re-chromed? Any help will be appreciated.

    MG Magic is still in business. Here’s their web site:


    There is no source specifically for the Classic Roadsters Ltd. Duchess that I am aware of.

    The Duchess uses a reproduction TD grill. Even Moss Motors does not have them. Occasionally you will see one pop up on eBay, typically in the $1,000 range if they are in any kind of decent shape.

    A good, make that very good, metal worker may be able to repair your shell.

    If you own a TDr and are not in the Registry, please go to https://tdreplica.com/forums/topic/mg-td-replica-registry/ and register (you need to copy and paste the link)



    I run a Fiberfab. I ran without a grille shell for a couple years because there were no replacements out there. New and used Grille shells for an original TD are available, however. You could probably adapt one of these to fit as I did by trimming some flanges and modifying the front fenders.
