  5. 1988 Puma MG TF

    Sorry Kevin Hines, not Larry, spoke with me. Very knowledgeable and helpful man!
  6. 1988 Puma MG TF

    Thank you! I followed your last clue with Bremen Motors and found Larry Hines in Bremen Indiana with Special Edition Cars. He knew Carlos Avallone and was very helpful to explain that Puma and Avallone are 2 different companies as you rightfully explained as well. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    Thanks for the info! I see that Bremen Motor Corp (Queens NY) has been dissolved. What do you mean by the Avallones having no connection with Puma? Both logos are represented on the car.
  8. 1988 Puma MG TF

    Per the client, this is what we know: 1. 1988 Puma Avallone, VIN 9AMCA641XM198801. We believe the "198801" indicates that it may have been the first built in 1988. Built by Carlos Avallone (F1 Racer) in Brazil, not a "kit car", custom built to the specs of his customers to look like an MGTF-1500 (although it is one foot longer and one foot wider, and doors open standard way). 2. Purchased in 2005 by our client, from a NASA engineer in Muscle Shoals (Huntsville), Alabama. 3. Heavy Fiberglass body, . 1988 Chevette motor & chassis. Engine code VO721CYB indicates V (flint Michigan), 07 (July) 21 (21st day), but we are not sure of what the CYB engine suffix code indicates. CYB was used in both 1976 (60hp) and 1978 (63hp) as 1.6L. CYB was also used in 1982 as a 1.8L in Chevy Cavalier (88hp, 112 cid) 4 cylinder overhead cam, breather on right, intake on left. Mexican peso stamped on valve cover. Aluminum head. Exhaust manifold GMA 459982N. Ford carburetor. We are wondering if there are any others like it, and of course how to value it.

    I would love to see it!
  11. 1988 Puma MG TF

    Any information on the 1988 Puma MG TF? We are restoring one for a client and can't find much info or another one in existence. We know it is a kit car made in Brazil by race car driver. This specific model is't mentioned on the Puma Car Club website either (translated from Portuguese). Thanks, Joanne Pistorius joanne@oldwheel.com 813-714-1019

    Anyone out there have any info on the 1988 Puma MG TF? We are restoring one for a client and have been looking to see if there is another one like it. Thanks! Joanne Pistorius joanne@oldwheel.com 813-714-1019

    Anyone out there have any knowledge of the 1988 Puma MG TF? It is a kit car made in Brazil, but even on the Puma Club websites I cannot find references to the MG TF Puma. We are working on restoring one for a client and it seems to me this is a rare car, albeit a kit car. Would love to know if anyone else has seen one. Joanne Pistorius joanne@oldwheel.com 813-714-1019
