MG QT Build (Sold): Part 3 - Peter Burgess Head

As you'll see on the photographs section the wiring is now complete and we've added a stunning gas flowed head from Peter Burgess. I'm itching to drive this car now and am really pleased with how it's turning out! Let me know your thoughts!




MG QT Build (Sold): Part 2 - Wheels & Wires

Posted on April 10, 2009 at 4:46 PM

The build for the QT is progressing well, the car is now fully wired with a fully ported, unleaded, cylinder head from Peter Burgess to be fitted this week. The Eaton supercharger is at the polishers along with the 2" SU carburretor which should give the engine bay the wow factor. We will also be fitting a nice alloy catch tank. Pete & I have decided on the colour and the body has now been sent to the paint shop. You can see the green on the wheels in the photographs section - we'll be going for a 2-tone effect. The seats are also being made in a nice dark green to further this. Pete has decided to sell her when complete to fund his racing through the year (not that he'll win anything! - sorry mate!!). 

MG QT Build: Part 1 - First Glimpse

Posted on March 31, 2009 at 8:03 PM

In addition to the cars my son and I will be taking to Angouleme, my good friend Pete & I also have a project we're working on. As you'll see we're rebuilding a QT. We've had the chassis checked by Chassis Build, sourced an alloy radiator and added some nice chrome details. The engine is a 1350cc unleaded block which will, of course, be supercharged. It will have new tyres, springs, hubs and brakes and be set up for the rolling road. This car may be for sale in the near future. Click on the photo below to see more pictures!
