September 2015 – 1988 MG Montego 2.0 EFI

History

I purchased the car from the original owner, initially his company car, then he purchased it. When I acquired it on 26th November 2005, it was in a very poor state, with the paint work dull and heavy scratches on the bonnet and boot. The rear spoiler was cracked and had to be discarded, the rear bumper was also cracked, driver’s door and rear wheel arches were very rusty. All the black around the tops of the doors and on the body trim had faded to white. The roof lining was full of holes and had dropped down at the rear and the dashboard was cracked in half a dozen places,

The car was rebuilt in February 2006 with a list of parts replaced including headling, seats, rear spoiler, and rear arches. The car was resprayed except for the front wings and the tops of three doors. I managed to get a dashboard from a scrap yard along with many other parts. The car had a full service and mechanical check up and passed the MOT first time – it runs like a dream. It also won a prize at our informal concours in July 2006.
