When I got my 63 MGB it was 1973. I remember thinking at the time that at 10 years old it was a real antique. Now I drive a 17 year old truck that I think is new.
The MG came with the original motor in pieces. I put it together using a real good british manual and drove it for 6 years. Once I figured out what a spanner and a bonnet was, I was good to go.
Dad had a 54 Ford Mainline with a V8. I dont remember it being a flat head motor.
I do remember that his 61 Galaxy was an overhead valve V8, and the family 63 Country Squire 390 4 barrel wagon would rival most anything on the road.
Good old days for sure.
