Alan's not an anorak unless he was lying about spending 20 minutes googling it, whereas you knew it without resorting to Google! ;-)

Re: MG T-Bar Quiz 11 years 10 months ago #53795

Now I have an anorack but know nothing so does that make me a donkey jacket!! (Please note that the swear filter will not let me use A S S as in one word)

ADO 51 It was alleged to have been the Austin-Healey Mk3000IV prototype, hence the grill, which was custom made it was duplicated as a twin (ADO52) that became the MGC

In the now quite dim recesses of my mind (apart from the voices in my head) someting says the AH3000 Mk IV was a widened 3000 with a RR 4 litre as was in the VP Princess. The RR 4 litre was a light alloy engine not that much heavier than the original 3 litre Austin and having a 6" wider track it handled and cornered quite well. The added power was also nice. Far better that the MGC ended up with. Unfortunately they couldn't get it into production as BMC was merging with Jaguar by that time and it would have been a competitor.

Have to fly now as I have Bowels - sorry bowls to go to. Will leave for others to flesh out as I cannot research any longer. :coat:

I think that is the Metro-based Midget concept of the mid-80s? I can't remember the codename of the project though, was it part of AR6?

EDIT: Yes, I just cheated it was part of AR6, so not strictly-speaking Metro based, but pretty close.

98 MGF Abingdon" 285H cams, modded head etc
87 MG Metro: 1440cc fast road car
88 MG Metro Turbo

01 MG ZS 180: LHD, for driving around Germany in

Well done MG Mad and :welcome: to the MG T-Bar Quiz. It is indeed the AR6 with the roof removed and was made as a concept for the 'new' Midget.

Look forward to your question :broon:
