1963 Mk1 MG Midget
Initially, the Mk1 (GAN1) MG Midgets introduced in 1961 retained the drum brakes and 948cc A-series engine from the Frogeye Sprite, albeit in a slightly higher state of tune. But from Motor Show time in 1962 these cars were transformed when they received a 1098cc engine (giving the biggest incremental power increase of any modern Midget) and disc brakes. The car in this video clip is a later (GAN2 or 'Mk1.5') car which has been owned by the same family since 1973 and restored to near-original condition. Look out for the MGA coupe which makes an un-scripted appearance in the 6th minute.

Triumph GT6 Mk3 race car
I did a lot of work porting the cylinder head to make the engine rev so freely. The stock Exhaust ports are originally are nearly square. The Exhaust headers have nearly round ports and a lot of material had to be removed from the head casting to match the two. I also cut off the bottoms of the Exhaust guides, although I do not think this makes a big difference. The intake is also port matched. I was a bit concerned about the huge amount of material removed from the head around the Exhaust ports, but so far we have about 8 races on this engine and it has performed superbly. The brake lines on this GT6 are copper nickel alloy. Please visit my website to purchase a kit for your Triumph http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html What we did over the winter: Added a much stiffer rear spring, welded up the differential, Increased the size of the engine crankcase breather substantially, removed the drive shaft and had it balanced to perfection. Also we got a new set of light weight wheels To purchase Cunifer copper nickel brake line kits for your Triumph Spitfire or GT6 contact me.

1975 MG Midget 1500 Triumph Engine
1500 Triumph engine running with a large Exhaust leak before removal. This is the original engine the car came with when I bought it in Feb 2012. The car is going to be restored and is in the process of being dismantled hence the lack of seats, wings, hanging wiring etc.. The end goal is to fit a Rover Kseries engine and a Ford type 9 gearbox along with all the essential upgrades for a car of this age, but first it needs all the cancerous rust removed.
