Details

1964 MG MGB, Race car, converted to right hand drive.  Built by: Lloyd Faust 

This 1964 MG MGB, built as a replica of the factory MG race team cars of the early 1960s, was invited to attend the Monterey Historics in 2000, decked-out with its original BMC Competitions Department (at Abingdon) finery including aluminum alloy door skins, bonnet, and boot lid. At that time, it was fitted with works-style dual (over and under) fuel tanks with a quick-fill fuel cap mounted in the boot lid. The dual fuel tanks aren't used for vintage racing because they lack modern bladders, but parts have been preserved and can be refitted. John drove this car to many victories, including the 2007 Collier Cup Race, Watkins Glen.
