Gosh, a few hours in that.
Classic look, clean engine bay, purposeful stance with a nice wheelarch gap, vintage interior.
Excellent.
And an unusual colour.

Well done!

Alamo Beige paint (an MG factory color from 1959-1962).

Beautiful auto and excellent choice of power plant. Kinda partial to the 5.0L Ford engines:-) The TKO should take any abuse that the owner will throw at it. The paint choice and enhancements are very tasteful. Great Job! Maybe a trip back east to one of our V8 Meetings?

What a great car, I've come back to look at it a few times already. Nice choice of color, too.
