    Hi Guys.

    There is a TDr hot rod (so it says) on Ebay. Stated to be MGB based with a FF body. Could this be a Victor ?  Paul any ideas? Priced at $1500……

    Looks like a valiant attempt to mate a VW-based Fiberfab kit to an MGB chassis. Not for the faint of heart, I’d think.edsnova2015-06-23 13:49:36

    What Ed said!

     
    If that body is already mounted to the frame, it will NEVER look right.
     
    Based on the cuts made to the rear fenders, I suspect the body has been mounted to the frame too far forward.
     
    Either that, or the frame is too short.

    Hi Guys

    The concept of using MGB running gear is I think a decent one. The concept of using the MGB frame is flawed. The MGs rocker panels are structural in a big way. Get that wrong and you have a problem waiting to bite you  in the nether regions!  He should have used a custom or even a small truck frame and just used the B running gear, in my humble opinion anyway. $1500 to rich for my blood. It will be interesting to see where this thing ends up.

    Seems worth it for the body alone if you have a place to store it till needed. 
    U-store rates might be low in Banning.
