British Motor Heritage (BMH) has expanded its range and produced some aluminium skin panels for the MGB – products that will be of particular interest to the racing fraternity. The first sets of aluminium door skins are now in stock and priced at £145 each (inc VAT). The part numbers are HMP113207 for the lefthand one and HMP113208 for the right.
The company has also manufactured some aluminium boot skins priced at £185 each (inc VAT). They are available direct from BMH by phoning +44 (0)1993 707200, through the internet from www.motoringclassics.co.uk, or from any British Motor Heritage Approved Specialist, details of which can be found at www.bmh-ltd.com
In other news from BMH, the company is planning a second run of MGB bodyshells. BMH has already manufactured one run of MGB bodies this year – but there is still time to place an order for the next run which will be delivered in October.
Other production runs include: a batch of Midget bodyshells for August delivery – the last opportunity to buy until 2015 because production only happens once every two years; plus two batches of Mini bodyshells are being built too (one for delivery in May, the other for December distribution).
Amazingly, this year is the 25th anniversary of the introduction of British Motor Heritage’s (BMH’s) replacement bodyshell for the ubiquitous MGB. As originally supplied, the product was only available minus the bolt-on front wings, doors, bonnet and bootlid. However the accurate addition of these parts proved too much for the average enthusiast, so fully fitted shells became the standard sales option, and BMH nowadays offers a comprehensive range of no less than 12 roadster and 10 GT variants.
