If your engine has not had the radiator coolant and heater supply hoses replaced in the last 8-10 years then the rubber is dry rotting and could burst like a mini solar flare without warning. Ok, a very mini solar flare. Coolant will blow right out of a burst hose like solar plasma causing the engine to rapidly overheat. An overheating engine can fail in catastrophic fashion ranging from blowing a head gasket to cooking the cylinder head to melting the pistons, seizing the engine and it's all over. All these are expensive repairs and are avoidable by replacing all hoses that carry coolant upon occasion.
Regarding Jaguar cars, we stock a great many new parts for XJ6 and XJ12 cars from 1969-1997. We also supply parts for Jaguar E-Types and parts for 1950-1997 cars such as Jaguar MK I, Jaguar MK II, Jaguar MK VII, Jaguar MK VIII, Jaguar MK IX, Jaguar MK X and both 3.8, 4.2 and V12 engines. We supply parts for Jaguar 420, Jaguar 420G , Jaguar 3.4S and Jaguar 3.8S.
MGTD original parts in great rust free condition such as fenders, doors, differential, transmission, gas tank, body tub, frame, Girling shocks, brake drums, drive shaft, windshield frame, a Right Hand Drive dash and much more. Let us know what you need.
At this time, we are selling off a huge collection of 35 years of used parts for MG, Triumph and Jaguar.
No used E-Type or XK parts remain.
We squirreled away many tons of parts that we thought were good and many stayed in storage ever since because we were always too busy to deal with used parts. If you need something, now is the time to ask as parts we decide to not keep will be sold as parts or to a scrap metal place and the money donated to animal rescue groups. The funds from all sales of used parts go to animal rescue groups. We don't need the money, animal rescue groups always do.
We have entire parts cars available as well including a Nash Metropolitan Convertible, MGA, TR3, 1979 Midget, a few MGB's and a TR6 and several Jaguar XJ6 and XJ-S. No used XK parts remain.
Recently we scrapped eight truck loads of good and bad used parts as metal brings a good price these days but we would prefer to sell the parts to people that can use them. This said, the used parts are going away one way or the other now.
We have a great many original Smiths gauges for British Cars from the 1950's to the 1980's. Some are new and others are not new. Some of the used gauges are in great shape and others are good for parts. There is a tiny part number on the face of every Smiths gauge. Contact us with the number of the gauge that you seek.
Before we discuss specific parts let us discuss parts specifics and definitions. Few or perhaps no other parts suppliers other than us will likely tell you this stuff. We do because we think that most British car owners are not stupid although some are of course yet most people can make good decisions if they have good information. So here is some good information.
1. New Old Stock or NOS- Many of these parts were made by the original manufacturers to original specifications and many of the companies no longer exist. New Old Stock parts may have been manufactured 10, 20. 30. 40 or 50 years ago or more. These parts usually have no return privileges because suppliers such as ourselves have no one to return them to. We happily buy such parts as-is and sell them the same way. The good thing about such parts is they are of original build quality and are much better than reproduction parts in many but not all circumstances. In our shop, we usually prefer NOS metal parts when available. However all NOS parts do not age well such as hydraulic assemblies or rubber parts. When we sell a NOS brake master cylinder for example, we recommend replacing any rubber parts as this action ensures a good installation without leaks.
2. Used parts. These parts are good useable parts that may and usually do require cosmetic preparation or rebuilding work. These parts may be used to rebuild other assemblies as well. Asking for a good used electric fuel pump for a 1956 Rolls Royce or MG is not going to happen without a time machine but we do stock new pumps.
3. Rebuilt or remanufactured parts. These are assemblies that are supposed to be rebuilt as well as can be done and are sold on an exchange basis with a refundable core charge applied for the return of a good rebuildable assembly. Rebuilt parts require new parts to be used in the process not just a coat of paint. There is no end to variances in the quality of rebuilt parts as the quality standard is entirely up to the rebuilder. Some rebuilders goal is to rebuild something as cheaply as possible with no regard to quality. These companies have zero pride in their work and leave bad experiences in their quest for easy money. The "rebuilding" process may just involve polishing and painting or poking in a new seal here or there. Other firms aim for a high standard such as as close to new or even better if possible. Price sometimes is not a determining factor as some rebuilders ask as much for their trashy product as quality firms ask for good stuff. The bad rebuilders depend on the ill informed to sustain their business and there is no lack of business for them it seems.
4.New and rebuilt electrical parts are not returnable because "some" people will install them into a car with an electrical short in the electrical system and fry the new part or they install the part incorrectly and burn it out or damage it. These people will usually claim the parts are defective and want to return them. Other people will buy and use an electrical part such as a relay or alternator to test their car with and if it does not fix it, they want to return the part. However, the part is no longer new and suppliers cannot sell it as new if it has been fitted. These people may say, " But it did not fix my car." No part is ever sold with the guarantee it will fix a car problem unless the part has magical powers. Parts with magical powers are clearly marked and are more expensive.
5. Rebuilt parts are not returnable but we do exchange or fix them on the rare occasion there is an issue within the warranty period.
6/ Special orders are not returnable. Many manufacturers do not want special orders back so we are stuck with them if a client refuses to pay for them. When we do a special order the order cannot be canceled once we turn it in to the factory so we take full payment with the order. Specials are parts that we do not stock and don't want to stock as they are not quick movers. We do our best to stock parts that people actually need and want to buy. However as we nor any supplier can afford to stock every single part that was ever built we special order parts every week for our shop and for clients and are happy to do so.
7. If a part still being manufactured is found to be defective with a manufacturers warranty period then we replace it or sometimes such parts have to be returned to the factory and they decide if it will be replaced or repaired. These issues are on a case by case basis depending on the makers policies. The good thing is that we find very very few defective parts.
8. Reproduction parts. Some are very good, others are very bad and others are worse than bad. If the original maker no longer supplies a part and the part is being reproduced, it may be good or bad or just plain ugly and may be the only part available. The end user has to work with the part, machine it or otherwise work the part to fit and work well. This is just the way it is.
While we are universally renowned throughout the known universe for supplying new spare parts for Bentley and Rolls-Royce cars, we do supply a great many new parts for certain marques of cars such as:

We can supply new parts for Jaguar cars built after 1996 as well but the earlier cars are our forte. As we have rebuilt, restored as well as serviced all of the above Jaguar cars over the last 34 years, we should have little difficulty in knowing what you want.

Yes, we offer new parts for all the above MG cars and having restored and rebuilt all of these cars over the years, we know them well.
Jaguar- We stock a great many new old stock parts for 1969-1987 XJ6, XL12 and XJ-S cars. We stock many parts for E-Types and as Scotty has owned many Jaguar MK II or Mark II or Mark 2 or Mark Two ( the model numbers get confusing ) cars for over 35 years, we stock lots of new parts for these beautiful cars as well.
We have for the 1960's Jaguar 3.8S and 3.4S, new old stock rear resonators with connecting pipes, We have a single new old stock Burgess exhaust comprising the headpipe and muffler for a early Jaguar XK120 Coupe. We have new old stock mufflers for XK140 and head pipes as well. We have over the axle pipes for early XJ6 and some original headpipes for Jaguar MK 9. We have a pair of old stock headpipes for the Jaguar V12 E-Type.
Windshield glass. We can supply new laminated front windshield glass for Austin A30 and Austin A 35 as well as many other British cars. We can supply new windshield glass for a great many cars so just ask.
We supply parts for many vintage Mercedes Benz cars such as 190, 220, 300, 220seb, 300sel, 420sel, 190sl,230sl,250sl,280sl, 350sl,450sl, 500sl,560sl, 600 Pullman and many more.
Please send the VIN with parts requests. Concerning all Mercedes Benz cars from 1960-1985 or so there are many rubber based mounts that will be very deteriorated by now. These mounts hold the suspension systems to the body. These are many other rubber parts and they should be inspected as if these mounts have perished, the car will wander and have a poor ride. We supply subframe mounts for just about all models from the 1960's 108, 109, 110, 111,113 models on and have have extensive experience rebuilding these cars so have a good idea of what your car may need.

How to buy used parts from us:
The only way to purchase used parts from us is to
call or c
We are cleaning out 35 years of used spare parts and parts cars for mostly MG and Triumph cars such as MGB, MG Midget, TR6 and Jaguar cars such as XJ6 1970-1986 and XJS 1976-1988. Check us out for used parts for these models. Buy an extra parts car or whatever. These are used parts and none are "perfect". Keep in mind that we do not have time to search out that used original nut, bolt or teeny tiny little part that is worth 35 cents. Only parts with sufficient value to justify the time to look for them will be dealt with. No used XK parts remain.
As our shops have been around since 1976, we think the best way to buy parts for cars such as we deal with is by developing a long term relationship with us as making a quick buck is not our way as our business plan is not based on a Goldman Saks model of ever increasing quarterly profit reports to impress shareholders. Maybe we should have worked things like that so we could get rich but we never did. We have a more long term view of things sort of like the Chinese do and like to help clients with their car projects. In exchange we like for people to buy their parts from us instead of from generic mail order houses that know or care nothing about these cars and might as well be selling pot holes or Love Potion #9, This is not to say that Love Potions are a bad thing as we all need a little love but potholes get no love from us.
We offer new KONI shocks for Triumph TR3, TR4,TR6 and Spitfire. We have Koni shocks for many Jaguar cars and many other cars as well.
We have a large stock of new old stock Jaguar XJ6, XJ12 and XJS parts circa 1969-1987 such as bumper chrome, windshield trim, lot of mechanicals and bits long discontinued.
BCP has extensive parts stocks on hand and worldwide sources for the remaining zillions of parts we may not have (yet). For Rolls-Royce and Bentley parts requirements, click here and go to our Rolls-Royce and Bentley section.
We have a lot of vintage Lucas switches, lenses, lamps and more that fit scarce cars such as Hillman, MG1100, Austin America, Austin Marina, MG Magnette, Sunbeam Alpine, Standard and many more British cars. You never know what we have until you ask.
We are always looking for Rolls-Royce and Bentley parts inventories to acquire. New leftovers, old inventories, we want them. If you have a stash of boxed Lucas parts or original manufacturer parts that are taking up space, let us know?
When we say we have billions of car parts we say it with the same sincerity politicians though out the ages have, give or take a few million here or there...and don't quote us.
While we are mostly about NEW parts, we do have a LOT of used parts available from our collection.
We offer certain new parts for 1960's Bristol cars, primarily the 409. We can supply ball joints, suspension bushings, brake parts, motor mounts, many electrical parts and some steering parts.
We have quite a few Vandevell bearing sets for many vintage British cars and lots of original vintage Lucas spares. Never be afraid to ask.
We have a lot of original BMC parts such as a new old stock hood (bonnet) for an Austin Healey 3000 still wearing a BMC sticker.
We supply wiring for many British cars going back to the 1930's. We even stock a complete wiring loom or harness for an Austin A-40 Somerset. We also supply wiring for Armstrong Siddeley and lots of great British cars.
Austin Healey parts are available as well as parts for MGTC, MGTD, MGTF, MGA, MGB, MGB-GT, MG Midget, MG Magnette, Austin Marina, Triumph TR2,TR3, TR4, TR6, Spitfire, Stag, Austin Healey 100/6 and Healey 3000, Bugeye Sprite, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Lotus, TVR, BMW and many other current and vintage cars. We also offer parts for Mercedes Benz 6.3, 3.5, 4.5, 280sl and many other Mercedes. We are the Texas Moss Motors Distributor and offer their complete line of parts for MG, Triumph and Austin Healey, XK140 and Miata, PT Cruiser and the new Mini. We also stock many lines of O.E.M. parts for Jaguar and Mercedes Benz automobiles built from 1950-2008. Since 1976 we have been one of the planet Earth's and specifically the Gulf Coast's favorite place to secure parts and accessories for English cars. Don't worry about part numbers. If you have a part number that's great, however we know the cars well and can take your description and work from there to give you the best price and availability. We offer fine quality wiring looms and convertible tops for just about any car manufactured in a large range of colors and materials. Contact us for pricing.

Rare Bits and Bobs
Previously owned parts owned by nobody particular
We have many obsolete and rare parts available for a wide variety of 50's-80's British cars. Lucas Electrical, Girling brakes, Smiths Instruments, Vandervell engine bearings, Glacier engine bearings and lots of N.O.S. parts as well. We also have a lot of Mercedes Benz parts for 50's through 90's cars.
We now have a few exceptionally rare new old stock 72-73 Triumph GT-6 brake master cylinders. These were just about impossible to get 30 years ago. We may have the only remaining world stock of them. We also have original Harmo exhaust for GT-6, early TR6 and some Spitfires.
We offer rebuilt steering racks for Rolls-Royce and Jaguar. We offer brake calipers, generators, starters and other quality spares at attractive prices.
great sounding ANSA exhaust systems for
We have ANSA exhaust systems in stock at the moment for all MGB cars.
We now have a single, new old stock ANSA exhaust system for a six cylinder E-Type. We are considering substantial offers for this very desirable, extremely scarce system that may well be the last one on the planet as it has not been manufactured in 15 years or more. Virtually every knowledgeable E-Type owner wants this system but only one may purchase it. We also have a very rare single set of new old stock ANSA tail pipes for the 6 cylinder E-Type also available to substantial offer.
We also offer Bell stainless exhaust systems for MG Midget, MGA, MGB, Triumph Stag, TR4, TR6, Spitfire and Jaguar E-Type and XJ6.
We offer Falcon and Bell stainless systems for most MG and Triumph cars. The main difference between Falcon and Bell systems is that Bell uses more stainless and thus costs more.
With exhaust systems, you definitely get what you pay for or don't pay for. Take headers for example. There are el cheapo headers out there. They don't fit well, they crack, they leak, they rust out fast. Cheapo headers break knuckles installing them and did I mention they are cheap? The best headers are made from stainless steel yet all headers usually require a bit of special fitting. We hate cheap junky exhausts and consider them a waste of money unless there is absolutely nothing else available. Contact us about all exhaust needs.
Rare parts? We have lots of new old stock rare parts such as new old stock left hand MGA Coupe door latches.
We stock parts for the BMC Farina series of cars like MG Magnette, Wolseley 16/60, Austin Cambridge, Austin A60, Morris Oxford and Riley.
Any part accepted for return must complete and be returned in the original packaging. The packaging must be in as good and in clean condition as when it was sold. There are no returns allowed for any electrical part. There are no returns allowed for special order parts.
Now why is this so you may ask?
To resell a part that has been returned, anyone purchasing that part will want it in clean unused condition. This is perfectly reasonable.
Electrical parts are not returnable (unless they are found to be defective in which case they will be replaced), because many cars have existing electrical problems that will cause a new part to burn out. Some people will purchase a new part with the intention of keeping it only if the part fixes their problem. If they guess wrong, then they want to return the part and "buy" another and on and on. This sort of thing abuses parts suppliers thus no parts house will accept electrical parts for return.
Special orders are not returnable because such parts may take a long time to sell to anyone else and no business wants to tie up money in parts that gather dust.
Core charges: What is a core charge anyway?
Here is how the rebuilt/exchange parts business works worldwide.
Think of the song in the movie Casablanca, "As Time Goes By". Certain expensive assemblies such as steering racks, starters, alternators, water pumps, certain brake and electronic parts are no longer be supplied new after the manufacturer stops. If a part is expensive or no longer available, the part may be supplied as a rebuilt exchange unit or firms such as ours will rebuild your assembly. A great many parts are available as rebuilt exchange units. A core value charge, usually the full value of the part or more for the return of the old part is applied on the invoice with assembles that are shipped out to ensure the return of the old assembly so it can be rebuilt and maintain stock.
Some cores are very valuable and hard to find so without the return of the old part, these assembles would not be available at all. So enough value is placed on the core part so it is worthwhile for the purchaser to return it and get their money back. Returned cores have to be in rebuildable condition. For example if a steering rack was involved in a collision and is bent or smashed, there is no core value or a greatly diminished value as the unit cannot be rebuilt. Other cores may have sat in water or outside in mud for years and are damaged from rust. Damaged cores have little value but some people will send them in anyway and a few become angry or they try to appear angry when their worthless core is rejected. All valuable cores are inspected before a core charge is returned.
We supply a great many rebuilt parts and always prefer to have the core returned than keep the core money as the loss of a rebuildable core creates a loss of availability of the part for others in need.
New Old Stock or NOS
Some parts remain unsold for many years or decades. These parts were new when placed into their packaging and after many years have passed the never installed or used part is called a new old stock part because is was new and unfitted and is now old and unfitted. the companies that made new old stock parts are in many instances no longer in business or are no longer interested in parts they made years ago. NOS parts may not have a warranty and most do not other than they are what they are. Most parts made of rubber are not desirable NOS parts as rubber steadily deteriorates with time. A thirty year old water hose will not survive pressure and hot coolant for very long before bursting.
This said, we have original water in stock for cooling systems available, The water is available in vintages from 1846 to 2012. We are happy to trade for vintage Port of the same year.
When we purchase new old stock parts, we dispose of parts that we do not think are good to sell to someone unless the part is kept for historical purposes.
We have lots of good used parts. Most used parts are exactly that and are not perfect or new or flawless. Frequently we have people calling us for 30-50 year old used parts they want to buy but the parts must be perfect. By definition, there are no perfect used parts and many were never perfect when first made but there are many good used parts.
We have nice original MGTD fenders, body tub, frame, fuel tank, doors, windscreen assembly, original gauges and more. Amongst our used spares we have Jaguar engines from the 1960s, a nice solid frame for a Triumph TR3, Stag engines, a TR6 parts car, MGB and Midget parts cars, Jaguar XJ6 and XJS parts cars, Austin Healey 3000 parts cars, lots of transmissions, differentials, Smiths instruments, engine blocks and the remains of lots of cars we have disassembled over the last 33 years. We have a few original Austin Healey 3000 aluminum shrouds left.
You can get rich! We will sell our entire used parts inventory as a single lot, by the pound or by the piece however we do not have time to search the piles for little bitty used parts though such as the original screw for the dum-a-flatchie that would take two hours to remove. Come and get it all and start a successful used British parts business!
