1952 Austin A40 Sports Convertible

This is a very rare British car, one of 1200 built from 1951 to 1952. It has an all-aluminum body built by Jensen and was a precursor to the A100 Austin-Healy. It was restored in 2008 with the assistance of Napa Valley Auto Restoration. For a European touch, German leather and a custom canvas top complete the car. After which it was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Also included are original marketing brochures, owner's handbook, shop manual, and toolkit complete the display package for this multi award winning car. Just take it to a show and you will get so many people asking "What is it?", and "I've never have seen one." We have had this car since 2016 and it has been a pleasure to own but we are downsizing so it has to go. Price $55,000 or best offer.

Details: VIN - GD3L686963, 4 speed manual on the column, 1998cc engine, Mileage 889 (probably since restoration), won Best in Class at 2016 and 2018 USBCC Dixon Show (didn’t compete in the winner’s circle in 2017 due to starter issue)

1977 MGB

It shows around 45,000 on the odometer. I was told when I bought it that was the mileage. I do have title. It, however does not run. It needs an engine rebuild. I wish I had the time, space, and such to do it but...well I'm a single dad and just can't.

I have it garaged. It's in really great shape, very little rust, the only amount I ever found is on the trunk, someone tried to shut it without springing the latch before I bought it. But otherwise it's solid. Convertible top is pristine, the rear plastic/glass is clear, no milking on it at all. Body is perfect, including the entire undercarriage. Has stock wire wheels, not after-market and the previous owner painted them black.

Asking $1500. Dave Manoucheri (916) 365-3889

Jim and Marjorie Grace’s 1958 Austin Healey

I thought I would let you know my intentions on the off chance you know of anyone who might be interested in the car prior to my advertising on the global market. I’ve attached a couple photos to refresh your memory of just how cute this car is. It is equipped with the manual transmission with overdrive, dual carburetors, and wire wheels. It includes the soft top, side curtains, tonneau cover, and spare tire. Jim also retained the original owner’s manual and factory parts list along with a complete photocopy of the workshop manual. There is, however, a small dent and scratch on the right rear quarter panel. It truly is mechanically sound and and a fun weekend driver. Debbie and I have had a blast cruising in this hot little roadster and will be sad to see it go. I was thinking that even with the dented quarter panel $30K is a fare and reasonable price, but of course I’m flexible. Any tips you might provide on how best to market the car would be appreciated. Thank you and happy motoring.

1980 TR7 Spider Special Edition

This Spider is one of just 648 Solihull factory Spider Special Edition fuel injected cars, equipped with a Bosch fuel injection system for the CA market.
VIN TPZDJ8AA401748, built Aug 1980
I have owned this TR7 since 1989. It is currently registered in California and has a current smog certificate, last smog test July 2017. It had steel wheels when I bought it and I do not have the alloy wheels. In the mid 90s I replaced all the rubber bushings with polyurethane and replaced the springs on all four corners. In 2007 the engine was rebuilt and a new engine block was installed with new pistons, rings, bearings, and crankshaft.
Last year I replaced the fuel injectors and installed a new gear reduction starter. Other relatively new bits are brake pads and shoes, muffler, and steering rack
The car is sound. It needs a new top.  The seats have covers on them. There is a small area of superficial rust on the right rear quarter panel. It needs typical minor body work and a paint job would be nice.
It has been very reliable for me over the years.
I have a number of spare parts of various descriptions.
