The MGA With An Attitude

I ran across this little anomaly in Downer Grove, Illinois, in March 2015. It is a brand new Tasker reproduction grille still in original wrappings. The surround panel is injection molded plastic, chrome plated (but easily scratched). This piece was produced sometime in the late 80's as I recall. Fit was poor, scratch resistance was nil. I thought all of these were returned to the supplier, none ever installed. But here is one part surviving as an example of a past failed attempt to supply replacement parts on the cheap. We can only hope that no one else in the world ever sees another one of these.
