This car should not have white wall tyres
There is an extra meter on the right of the dash, other than that the finish and detailing are superb
The interior is a shade too glizzy. Should have been more sober, a black and not a bright red.

But never mind, one of the nicer MG's in Mumbai. Can we see engine pictures?

Cheers harit
Dear Mr. Harit,

I have attached the photographs of the engine, but these photos are prior to restoration. I shall upload new photos. As far as the white wall tyres go I completely agree. The meter to the right is the temperature gauge which was an period accessory either on the dashboard or the on radiator cap. And she is used by me daily, so the meter is also useful. Shall post pictures of the meter also. And for the interiors, the pictures are not doing justice. I shall upload more pictures of the interiors.

Regards

That car WBD 3552 is not an MG B it is a MG Midget Mark III.

What kind of engine did it have, capacity ?

Hi deutscheafrikar, you're spot on.. It's the same pump. Think you can 'lagaao' some influence with them to get pics ? I'm told they're very finicky about people taking pics.

That MG used to be deep blood red. Have they re painted it cause it looks a bit on the orange side in these pics ?

I have detailed pics of this MG and willpost them shortly.
