I bought this car at an auction 2 years ago, looking a bit grubby and sorry for itself. It became my lockdown project, now completed with MOT valid to 06/07/2021.

The bodywork proved to be good and solid, apart from the bottom of the doors, which had some rust, now attended to. The rear suspension spheres were knackered, so another complete rear subframe from a low-mileage Metro was fitted. It now works as it should.

After sorting out some minor mechanical issues, and giving the engine a good going over (new aux drive belt, plugs, oil filter and fresh oil, manifold gasket etc) it starts and runs very well. The Weber carburettor and three-branch manifold make for lively performance, but the original carb can go with the car, so that it can be returned to original if the new owner wishes.

Everything has had a good clean, and it has come up really well, as can be seen in the photos. The alloy wheels have been refurbished and fitted with a set of new Yokohama tyres.
The seats, door cards etc are very good for a car which is over 30 years old. I have not worried about the radio, as choice of in-car entertainment is such a personal thing.

The mileage, roughly 68,500, would appear to be genuine.

According to How Many Left, there were 67,827 MG Metros in 1996. At the end of 2019, there were just 65 on the road and a further 308 on SORN. This is a great little classic pocket rocket, now looking for a good home.
