Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline June 2014
Special Announcement

MGAguru is on the Prowl

I have to say, being mobile is off to a good start.  We have traveled almost 3000 miles since May 5th, hitting Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Now (5/24/2014) starting a slow crawl up the east coast from Myrtle Beach, SC. We may be back to the DC area in a few days, and likely farther north thereafter.

If there are any MGA folks who would like a visit as we go (anywhere in the country), just send us your contact information, name, email, location, and phone number.  You can find our trip log at  We expect to be on the road like forever, possibly covering the whole country eventually.

Lookin’ to track down a wayward 1963 MGB

Hello, I am hoping that your enthusiasts can lend a hand. My father purchased and MGB new when he was serving overseas in the Army. When he returned to Chicago he brought the car back with him. Eventually he sold the car and as you can presume by the feeling of this email my brother and I are looking to track it down to buy/restore??.

I did the typical Google search and came up with no results primarily because it seems the VIN number is too short for the current websites. I am hoping that perhaps your MG community might be of some assistance in helping me track down what ever happened to my father's car.

The shipping papers he found indicate the following: It lists the Chassis number and the Motor Number. It was manufactured sometime in early 1963. The car is an MGB 1800 convertible Chassis number is GHN3L15028. Motor number is GAUH15176.

If you have any suggestion or tips I sure could use some.

My kindest regards,
