    Thanks Paul for letting me into the group.

    I am not a current owner of a MG replica, but I am interested in becoming one.  My Grandfather has one that I am thinking of taking off of his hands.  The problem is that I don’t have a lot of information about it and while researching you find a lot of information and prices for TD models.  My Grandfather’s is a ’39 TB model with a VW engine, which I believe is from a ’73 super beetle.  I am told that it was built by a Cadillac dealer in the Detroit area, but I don’t know where the kit is from.   My Grandfather has had it since the mid-80’s, it has low mileage, and he has kept very good care of the car.  Any thoughts on the TB model versus the TD?  The T-series where all pretty similar designs with minor tweaks.  Would the cost of the TB be similar to TDs?

    I am just looking for some insight into these replicas.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,

    I believe I responded outside of the forum.

    Are you certain about the model TB? I’m not aware of any reproductions of the TA, TB or TC. If the car is truly a TB reproduction, it may be a one-off build. This would be a very cool find. And I bet the members here would be as interested in learning about it as you are.

    Would you post a couple pictures? Instructions are in the Picture Gallery section of the forum.

    Most replicas were of the TD. And there were a couple manufacturers of TF replicas.

    Here are the only pictures I have of my Grandfather’s replica.  It looks like other T-series, but I don’t know enough of the differences between the years and kits available.  Any help in identifying the background would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Mike

    MiGi TD replica, I think!

    Hi Mike,

    Definitely a TD replica.

    I agree with Ed. I believe this is a Daytona Automotive Fiberglass MiGi.

    Here’s a great thread with descriptions of just about all the major manufacturers. Scroll down to the Daytona MiGi post. I think you’ll see the details align with your car.

    The detailing looks identical to my London Roadster in its original form. The pinstripe, whitewall tires, fog lamps, horn placement.

    “Cadillac dealer in the Detroit” — definitely the London Roadster. It is very much like the Daytona though I have found several differences over the years.

    Look in the site’s Library under Manuals. There’s some info there about the LR.

    Thanks Stephen.  I think you may be right on with the London Roadster.
