MG TD TF 1500 - BMC Transporter

We used to have one of these that would come to the spring 'Ancaster' Flea market.... amazingly large vehicle

Interesting. Looks like a Detroit made station wagon rear end with an over size ambulance top. Disapointing that none of the period pieces are in the hull past the cabin. Would make a pretty cool trailer queen hauler I'd think. What do you suppose it would go for?

Maybe I'll POP in and take a look..

Take your check book and buy the 1930 MG. No reserve!
Take it home in the BMC mobile.

Wow! Thanks for the picture. I hope to build my own transporter based on my Commer camper. (see Image) The original paint scheme from BMC will be perfect for it.
See the next post for what I will haul in it.
Godspeed in Safety Fast . . .

I missed the boat on transporter....
Could have bought a 4 door Lincoln convertable for $2k when I was working on the TF.
We measured, the MG would have fit inside.
My buddy even had it figured out how to reinforce the trunk lid and rework it into a ramp.

OK ..I'll bite ..what is that John? Looks Fun!

I'm going to need a transporter to get the TD to Targa Newfoundland. Instead of an F350 Diesel, I thought that maybe this Daimler/El Camino might do the trick. What do you think - would an old 4.2 Jag engine pull a TD and trailer across the continent? A Daimler specialty guy in Atlanta built this from a DS420 limo and then put this up on eBay a few weeks ago - it only got bid to a little more than $5000, so it didn't sell. Maybe on the next round I'll go for this perfect hauler.

I believe the austin racer is actually an austin pathfinder pedal car, similar to the austin J40

John,
Neat little concept ...the monoped likes the monoposto ;-) !
Looks like a hoot to drive. Curious ..is it street legal? Hard to tell from that pic ..but looks like you might have "bashed" some headlamps into her bonnet?

DM:
The Austin in the picture is a full size racer. See the attached image . . . it is believed to be either the same car or a sister.

David:
My monoposto will never see the street but will be used for Solo II events and perhaps hill climbs. It has not yet fired so I do not know how it will drive but you are right is should be fun and that is why I built it just to have fun with, not to try and be competitive. When it is finished I hope to put together a list of British car events that include Gymkhanas and then try to make it to as many as I can.

Godspeed in Safety Fast
