Default Restoration of 1950's Arnolt, a Bertone bodied MGTD - by Ron Naida

Original content provided by Ron Naida aka "Ron Naida"

Librarians note: I assembled this documentary of Rons restoration project with his permission, from information provided by him in Forum Posts, and his member Gallery.

Group,

In response to a request for more posting of metalshaping or tutorial type content I have added an album to my gallery that includes pictures of a restoration project I did several years ago. Bertone made the bodies originally in the mid 50's. Then a guy named Arnolt who was a Chicago area MG dealer, commissioned bodies by Bertone to install on MGTD chassis here in the US. There were supposed to be 50 each of the Coupe and Convertable bodies shipped to Arnolt. They weren't selling well and I believe he took delivery of maybe 25 each. I finished that car at least five years ago. There were many hours but I can't recall now how many.

Regards,
Ron Naida
