Hexatruple Find! Barn Find MG’s In Washington

mg1

Hexatruple? What has Jamie been drinking? As it turns out, according to quora.com, “hexatruple” can be used to describe six of something, and that’s exactly what we have here with six MG barn finds all being sold by the same person. They are located in Graham, Washington and are listed here on craigslist, along with a 1937 Nash Lafayette and a few eclectic parts. All the MG’s are listed at $900 each, although you have to wonder if $3,000 or so wouldn’t buy them all. Don’t ask me why you’d want all of them–you must not be a serial Barn Finds reader if you have to ask! Thanks to Barn Finds reader Ropey. for this multiple find!

This first MGB is a 1967, and has more than a few dents. The wire wheels are a nice add, and I like the original eared knock offs rather than the federally mandated octagon ones that came later after some regulator watched one too many James Bond movies (go to 3:10 mark in this video to see what I’m talking about). Even if this weren’t the one you chose to put back on the road, there’s certainly $900 of parts here! It says in the Nash ad that a divorce is driving the sales; how sad.

This one is also a 1967, and looks a little straighter than the other car, although it’s wearing the ubiquitous Rostyle 14″ MGB styled steel wheels.

Surprise! Yet another 1967, with wires and some sort of hardtop. I’m pretty sure it’s not a factory one, but it’s hard to tell from these pictures. If you’re like me, you’re wondering by now why the cars seem to have played musical chairs with the bonnets, fenders and doors. Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe if you leave MG’s alone in the barn too long they get bored?

This 1974 must have drawn the short straw, as it’s both outside and the most visually damaged. The slotted aftermarket wheels may appeal to some, though, and those over riders are hard to come by as they were only on for a partial model year.

Here’s a 1978 Midget, which looks really solid. Can’t say I’m a fan of British Leyland browns, however. I had a both a Spitfire and a TR6 this color. This is one of the late Midget 1500s that has a Spitfire engine.

And finally, we have a round wheel well 1974 Midget (also with one partial model year only over riders) that looks pretty solid, although with that shredded top, you have to wonder about the floor.

So, for $900 each, which ones would you take, or would you offer a sum (and what would that be) for them all? Or did you look at the Nash and fall in love? Let us know in the comments!

    I think you could build a decent B out of this mess and maybe a Midget too. That would be awesome and sell a bunch of parts to help out. Gotta have a hobby, right?

      Alan, I don’t think you’d lose any money, as a matter fact you’d probably make some. The issue would be what you’d be paying yourself per hour in labor!

    So this is where they breed in the dark. There seems to be so many more Bs at car shows now than in the past.
