1969 (Mostly) America. Manual transmission. Mileage is unknown. Titled and basically street legal, at least in Idaho. Car has been modified for autocross and then 'detuned' to be street legal again. Very fun to cruise around town, or out in the country in. Many spare parts are included.

1970 America with manual transmission in Bronze Yellow.  Runs great, paint is very nice.  One rear hydrolastic displacer has either failed, or the flex hose going to it has....either way, easily fixed and the webmaster here can get you set up.  The clutch is having a problem fully disengaging, but that's also fairly easy, either in adjustment, rebuilding the slave and master cylinders, or in the wear at the clevis pin.  Either way, not a big deal.
 
Asking $1,200.00

1969 Automatic America in Riviera Blue.  Complete and all original, including the extremely nice original interior.  Car was originally sold in Canada and is currently in the Toronto area.  It was barn stored for approximately 20 years prior to it's current rescue and mechanical restoration.  It has a 1986 Rover Mini A+ engine with automatic transmission.  The A+ is a superior block and engine design to the original A series engine and the transmission includes a locking "Park" feature.  A very bulletproof and reliable combination.
 
The car is still being driven as a daily driver by the seller who wishes it to find a good and non-abusive new owner.  Asking price is $2,500 Canadian.

1969 America with automatic transmission.  2 complete extra engines included.  Extrememly straight and rust free body.  Was originally a southern California (read; Los Angeles) car until it was sold in 2003 and transported to Washington State in early 2004 where it has been sitting in the current owner's car port.  Originally Riviera Blue, but in this photo someone has painted the entire car, including much of the glass and trim, with blue paint from spray paint cans.  The seller says he has now removed all but about 2% of this paint. The car is 100% original and complete.
 
Webmaster's Note:  This car was sold to Grant Gaspard in the Olympia, WA area on Nov. 18, 2006.  I believe that due to the amount of structural rust, it has been parted out and taken to the scrap yard.

1969 America. In the last few years, it's had almost $7000 worth of maintenance... rebuilt engine, tranny, rebuilt clutch/calipers/carb/radiator, exhaust, new tires, mirrors, brakes/bearings/lines, fuel tank/sender/lines, lots of new electrical stuff, marker/tail lamps, turn signal indicator and switches (all factory).  All the lights/latches work great, the body looks great, good glass.  Runs well.  It'll hold 70mph in a straight line, no pulling when you hit the brakes.  Driven it regularly for the last year and wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.  It needs some interior work, floorboards and some metal/welding around the firewall, especially around the steering rack.  I just had the cylinder head retorqued and the valves adjusted... (typical maintenance after breaking in a new engine).  I have all the receipts detailing the repairs, which were done by MG mechanics.  I'm looking for $3500.

1970 America.  Automatic transmission.  100% all original, stored for the last 10+ years, never been restored.  Starts, runs and drives.  Was previously driven by owner's wife and daughters.  The lower front valance is a little beat up and there is accident damage to the right rear quarter that is actually difficult to see from the rear, but it is enough that the body panel between the tail light area and the rear of the rear wheel arch is buckled.  Shouldn't be too bad to pull back out (I've had one repaired that was far worse!).  The interior is perfect except for the dash top pad around the speaker opening.  Floors and underneath are free of rust.   There is some surface rust haze in the curved upper areas of the paint.  It is not rust coming through from underneath, but appears to be on the surface of the paint, probably from being stored under a cover of some sort.
 
Owned by Bill Seal in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina near Myrtle Beach.  Asking $1,700.00
 
*The car is sold as of Oct. 24th.  It'll be staying in Myrtle Beach, SC and is already in the bodyshop for a complete paint job!  Nice!

29,629 original miles.  Last registered in 1976, as found in the original owner's garage.  Automatic transmission model.  Still with the original California blue and gold plates and the "Peter Satori ~ Pasadena" Dealer license plate frames!!  (If you were buying a British car in southern California in the 60's & 70's, you bought from Peter Satori in Pasadena.
 
 
Webmaster's note:  I purchased this car October 19, 2003 and am currently doing quite a bit of work to it.  If you are interested in buying the car,  please get in touch with me via email so I can give you the particulars.  austinado16@cs.com
 
Progress as of Oct. 26, 2003:  After quite a bit of work, the engine runs fantastic.   I'm currently replacing the clutch plates in the Automatic transmission.   Following the successful completion of the mechanical repairs I'll be taking the car to my body/paint guy to have the lower trunk area and rear quarter panels straightened and painted to match.
 
Progress as of December 18, 2003:    I have finished rebuilding the transmission.  The car is back on the road, registered and it runs and drives fantastic!!  You can see the progress of the transmission rebuild on the new Technical Advice: AP Automatic Transmission page.   I performed quite a few modifications inside the transmission and these have cured all of the former problem areas.  The car is scheduled for the bodyshop on Tuesday Dec. 22 and should be out just after Christmas.  Following that, I will install new carpets, have the dash recovered and rebuild the brake hydraulics including rebuildingthe master cylinder, new hoses, front pads in semi-metallic, rear shoes and wheel cylinders.  The system will then be converted to DOT 5 Silicone.
 
FINAL UPDATE:
The car has been sold on Feb. 27, 2004 for $3,300.00 to Kirsten Quistberg of Sacramento, CA. 
 
You can read more about the restoration work and see more photos on the Rescue No. 2 page.
