For Sale: 1972 Full Race MGB GT with 16 foot Tandem Trailer

1972 MGB GT

Posted: October 1, 2022

This MGB GT started out as a street-car restoration project way back in 1995, but evolved into a Vintage racer instead! After 26 years of racing this trouble-free car with no DNF’s, I now have to sell it. It has a full roll cage per CASC, VARAC, VSCCA, etc. regulations and meets all criteria to race in Canada and the U.S..

This MGB has an 1840 c.c. engine with a big valve cylinder head (by Classic Motor Works in Manitoba), a 12.5:1 compression ratio, Cosworth flat-top racing pistons, Carrillo rods, a Nitrated balanced crankshaft, a heavy duty oil pump, Kent variable timing gear driving a Kent 718SP camshaft with Kent super duty cam followers and Kent high ratio roller rockers, ARP performance fasteners, a Weber 45 DCOE carb and Maniflow exhaust manifold, Pertronix ignition system, 16 row oil cooler and Canton accusump, plus an electric fan.

The drive train has an aluminum flywheel with a Borg-Beck competition clutch, a close-ratio gear box, plus a Fidenza rear banjo axle with a Quaife differential (with three different ratios).

The front suspension features Target front competition coil springs, a (one inch) sway bar and competition shocks. The rear has Spax adjustable tube shocks and a Panhard rod.

The car also has an ATL (2017) fuel cell, an OMP on board fire system and an OMP racing seat. It has a set of brand-new (one race) Falken RT-660 tires purchased this year, mounted on Miniator wheels.

Over $2,000 was invested in new brakes, bearings, wiring, hubs, etc. last year. The price includes spares and a 16-foot tandem trailer with an equipment box, winch, and electric brakes. A complete additional stock engine is also available and could be negotiated as part of this sale.

Price: $19,000

For Sale: 1976 BMW 2002 Project

Posted: July 25, 2002

I’m selling my partially disassembled 1976 BMW 2002. My original plans were to restore it but I have decided to change gears and concentrate on boats instead!

The engine was partly disassembled prior to removal but all of the parts are intact and included. It has a standard manual transmission and stock wheels and (old) tires. Some parts of the body need work typical of cars of this age. The right outer fender was completely rusted through and was discarded. The rocker panels have heavy rust but the strut towers appear to be well intact. The wheel wells have only minimal rust but will still need some attention. The back seat is intact but the front seats will need to be rebuilt. Unfortunately, the inside door panels will need replacement as they were previously cut to install speakers. The car comes with an extra hood and trunk lid, as well as two extra doors and a spare differential.

This former California car has never been modified and can readily be brought back into very good condition in the right hands. It is located in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast (B.C.). It will need to be trailered to be taken away. More photos are available upon request.

Asking $4,500 OBO

For Sale: 1991 Ford Taurus SHO

1991 Ford Taurus SHO – Front View

Updated: July  1, 2021

This 1991 Ford Taurus SHO is a great example of the original classic; a real enthusiast’s car. It is powered by the excellent Yamaha DOHC 24 valve, V6 producing 220 hp and backed up by a five speed gearbox. The SHO delivered 143 mph/ 230 kph out of the box together with great gas mileage.  This example is fairly close to clean “survivor” condition, It has approximately $10,000 in performance upgrades including urethane suspension components, Koni shocks, stainless header and exhaust, and the Wilwood “SHOstopper” brake conversion.

Included with the car are most of the original parts, receipts and spares, including extra Wilwood brake calipers, extra SHO body parts, Ford factory manual and more.  The front engine seal leaks a bit but a new seal and a new timing belt are included.

The current owner has had this local BC car for 20 years. It has 185,000 miles and although it has been off the road for a few years, it starts and runs very well. It would likely qualify for BC Collector plates with some TLC. It is located in North Vancouver.

Update: If you aren’t familiar with the back story of the SHO, watch this recent video (here) from our good friends at Hagerty. As you will see, the SHO is the ultimate ‘sleeper’!

Price: $4,000 (And ask about a special deal for current VRCBC and SCCBC members.)
