One of the most enduring sportscar designs ever was that of the 1955 MG TF. Alternative Cars Intl Ltd now manufactures a kitset car, or replica of that MG. While the main description of this may be that of a kitcar it is also available as a semi built vehicle, a turnkey minus, or a complete turnkey.
The semi-built TG vehicle comprising steel chassis with fibreglass body can come fully painted, assembled and upholstered. All that remains is to fit the Mazda MX5 Miata mechanicals (running gear, engine, gearbox) and the other essential parts such as engine computer, instruments, wiring, heater and power steering. The chassis is jig-made to bolt-on the Mazda parts. Door side impact intrusion is standard. The assembly work can be done by a mechanic and an auto electrician if you wish.
You can be driving a modern look-alike of a 1955 MG TF in a very short time. Over 400 MGTF replica cars have been made by this New Zealand manufacturer since 1983. Currently shipping to Australia, USA, Canada and UK. Read the reports on this site from major kitcar magazines.
