I just saw this listing and it expires in just over 2 days. Low ($50)starting price with no reserve. Thought I would bring it to your attention if you need a fender or something, this might be the ticket. What is it?….Daytona MiGi? London? CMC?

Correction, there is a reserve. Don’t know what it is.December 8, 2011 at 11:59 am #248135
50 percent positive feedback. . . .
No grill shell.
No interest on the seller’s part in finding out the MFG–prefers to air dirty laundry on ebay . . .
Looks like a project for someone in PA–or maybe NJ or MD or NY at the farthest. I don’t think I’d pay to ship it, or trust this seller to wrap & load it with any care.
Still, for like $200 it might be worth someone’s trouble. (But since the guy makes a point to say the old man paid $4500 for the kit, one suspects his reserve will be somewhere in the $2500 range)December 8, 2011 at 1:17 pm #248136Larry MurphyParticipant
It’s hard to tell from the small picture,but the front fenders look like CMC with the splash apron split in the center.I do not see any floor panels in the picture , which makes me wonder if it is designed for a VW instead of a Ford. Beware .50% is not a good rating.
Roy ,I don’t think these parts will be an exact fit for your MiGi.December 8, 2011 at 1:37 pm #248137
Larry, I’m not interested in these parts but I thought someone else who may be building or restoring one might be. Fortunately MiGi is in really great shape. I agree that this fellow has a poor feedback rating and I would not buy from him unless I could see the body first. I agree it probably is a VW based kit.
If anyone is seriously interested, I do have a savvy brother in law who lives about 15 miles from this guy and I could ask him to check it out. But time remaining on this auction is short and I have not asked my BIL. (My BIL is a smart mechanically oriented guy with no replicar experience.)December 10, 2011 at 2:46 pm #248138
ebay listing removed but this craigslist ad looks familiar. $300.
Not for me. I have too many other projects. But the price looks to be within reason.December 10, 2011 at 3:19 pm #248139Montie HendersonParticipant
If I a bigger garage I’d grab them just for future use. My brother (works at Brookville Roadsters, builds model A roadster bodies) and I playing around in the garage one day, talked about a TD based pick up truck project. Probably never happen, these would sure be the basic starter parts though. You know how you get talking with those brown bottle adult beverages, before long we have a 350 in it then 4×4 amd on and on. Still like to have the partsDecember 10, 2011 at 6:54 pm #248140
A pickup project would be interesting, and historically fitting.
On a VW car it would do a lot for engine room too, though I suppose you’d have to make it with a “dump body” to get access to the engine.
Those body parts are an hour and a half away from me.December 10, 2011 at 7:34 pm #248141Montie HendersonParticipant
Ed I think I’ve seen that artical before. Neet stuff..
I had to look at the map to see where that guy was in PA. Between the storage issue, the distance to get them home and the fact my better half would prob me, I better quit thinking about them. She’s pretty understanding but another huge project setting around might be pushin it.December 10, 2011 at 7:36 pm #248142
In one of the members picture I saw a td pick-up ,just cant remember who it was . but I bet paul would know.

Like this??December 10, 2011 at 9:05 pm #248144
That’s the one. Possibly the one and only.
Re the kit parts: On second thought, if you made it on a VW pan it’d need a Suby engine to lay flat under the bed. ‘twould be wicked.December 10, 2011 at 10:33 pm #248145
Not the one i was looking for ,But that is a much better picture than the one I saw. were there any other pictures of this td Roy.

Sometime in the late 60’s I saw this modified TD. At the time I had a TF and really wasn’t interested. But that was then and this…..
007 17:25:41FTD in an MGBDecember 11, 2011 at 5:46 am #248148
(Whatever “FTD in an MGB” means? It came over when I copied.) If you look carefully at the driver in pic #2, he appears to be wearing a bandana over his eyes. Do you suppose that this was some sort of game where the passenger gave verbal info to the driver in an early attempt at remote control driving??December 11, 2011 at 2:33 pm #248149
Ray, the pic you found (in Wobby’s) is of the same vehicle as the white one in the other pics.
Royal: yes, that’s a blindfold, and it’s a game–played at one of the early Gathering of the Faithful. The whole story is found here, at the “original MG” site. Quite a story!December 11, 2011 at 8:40 pm #248150
thank you both I found it very interesting. Maybe my next project?
