Third episode of our exclusive first world interview with Ed Braclik from Frontline Developments. Ed talks about the ethos behind the work on the new LE50 shell and announces when and where the first finished car will be seen in public in November 2011.





Fitting a Revotec cooling fan
Fitting an electric fan upgrade to a 1959 Peerless Phase 1. This will replace the mechanical fan fitted to the car's original TR3 engine. The fan has considerably more suction, drawing a higher volume of air through the radiator core -- and improving the cooling system's efficiency considerably. Read the full step-by-step fitting guide in issue 204.





Cylinder head crack test
From our cylinder head Masterclass feature in issue 219. The cylinder head is a cast iron head for Triumph TR4. These heads are prone to heat stress cracks but they can be repaired as proven in our feature. Here, the head is pressurised to 20psi or more and submerged in a heated tank of water at 75C. All engineering done by Hurley Engine Services, Bath, Somerset.

Frontline MG LE50
We've been big fans of Frontline for a long time - for both the amazing parts they produce to make MGs go, handle and stop better, and the awesome cars they build for their customers.

British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39 percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to his deputy George Harriman in 1956. BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.

1968 MGB Roadster Test Drive in Sonoma Wine Country
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1968-mgb-roadster/ to see this 1968 MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. The car starts; runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension, excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure. Truly amazing to find such an original gem. Incredibly original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on the engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition. Also includes both original issue black license plates. Take a look at all the details as well as full photo gallery at the link above and then give me a call with your best offer. Donn Dabney 707-332-8331 Thanks for watching this 1968 MGA test drive video - please leave a nice big thumbs up and a Like! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcz4ttT0LXk
