    Default Looking for a 260.....Again!!!

    Hi all,

    I've been looking for an MG 260 for a few years now on and off and came very close last year to actually getting one, I was put off by sub frame corrosion which at the time scared me off all 260's.

    I have come to the conclusion though that it is a small price to pay for what ultimately is my dream car, if it needs to be fixed, so what, I'll just fix it.

    Obviously I now need to find one and deal with the small matter of selling my new (2016) MX5. Hopefully the weather picks up!

    My ideal 260 would be in Goodwood green, how many are out there? (UK) I did have a 190 ZT in Typhoon and that was a lovely colour too.

    I am prepared to wait for the right car and like I said I still have to sell my Mazda first so there is no rush, just putting the feelers out.

    Thanks

    Take a look here. The list is pretty much complete as far as advertised cars is concerned, and some not advertised but from members of the Forum.

    Hi Tony,

    According to my data, there were only 4 V8s in Goodwood Green, 3 Saloons & a Tourer.

    VIN 384
    VIN 433
    VIN 533 (The Tourer)
    VIN 792

    #792 is particularly unusual, being the DTM Replica race car.

    All the Saloons are listed as SE trim level, the Tourer is not, but i suspect the DTM car has a stripped out interior (might be wrong on this, just seems logical).

    Best of luck finding one.

    Yup. When I counted "3" for Tony, I omitted the only LHD, the German/Finnish Tourer

    Best go for the light/dark "primer" instead of green? Lots of nice looking grey and silver machinery around at the moment, at what I think are reasonable asking prices (excluding Jeremy's old #105 in Germany, at a 'millionaires only' price ticket, of course ! ).

    After a bit of detective work I have managed to track down one of the cars in the list above, It might not be exactly what I am looking for in terms of condition, I am speaking to the owner tomorrow so will let you know.
