'69 B-GT of David Haines from Washington, DC

'69 B-GT of David Haines from Washington, DC

An American MGB Association Queen B is the '69 B-GT of David Haines from Washington, DC. Here is the story:

Over a period of approximately 4 years (2011 - 2015), I performed a ground-up restoration of this car for my son, David R. Haines, who at the time was a Captain in the Marines and was a pilot for the V22 Osprey.

Extensive body work was required including the installation of new/ middle outer sills and new floorboards along with extensive metal patching. The RH fender was replaced with a used unit. The front cross member was removed, sandblasted and painted. The entire body was chemically stripped prior to repair and repainting.

The restoration included an engine rebuild along with a new radiator and oil cooler. I bought and then rebuilt, at a University Motors session, an overdrive transmission to replace the original non-overdrive unit.

The carburetors were rebuilt at a University Motors class. The front suspension includes new swivels, anti-roll bar and coil springs. The rear springs were replaced. The interior has been completely replaced including the headliner. The seats, both front (leather) and rear (vinyl) have been reupholstered. New carpeting and interior trim panels were installed. A new wiring harness and alternator were fitted. I fabricated a new radio console to house a modern digital radio and additional switches for accessories. The bright work includes new front and rear bumpers, a new grill and re-chromed window frames. The car was originally pained Mineral Blue. The present color is GM Dar Metallic Blue (base coat/clear coat).
