THE MOST ORIGINAL MGB GT AVAILABLE IN THE COUNTRY.

DOCUMENTED ONLY 17. 00 MILES FROM NEW

1 OF ONLY 580 EVER BUILT

PURCHASED NEW BY A MR JOHN H DUDLEY ON THE 10TH FEBRUARY 1981. ONE OF THE FOUNDING PARTNERS OF BARLOW RAND INTERNATIONAL. HE USED THIS VEHICLE AS A SHOW VEHICLE FROM 1981 THROUGH 2003 WHEN HIS COLLECTION OF HISTORIC MOTOR VEHICLES BECAME TOO LARGE TO SUSTAIN REGULAR USE. THIS IS WHEN HE DECIDED TO STORE A PROPORTION OF HIS COLLECTION IN A TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED ROOM IN ONE OF HIS FACTORY'S. INCLUDED IN THOSE STORED. WERE FOUR MGB GT'S. ALL OF WHICH HE HAS PURCHASED NEW AND TWO OF WHICH WE ACQUIRED FROM MR DUDLEY THIS YEAR.

UPON DELIVERY OF THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE. WE HAVE SPENT TIME RENEWING PERISHABLES ONLY. REFRESHING THE PETROL AND SERVICING THE ENGINE. WE HAVE LEFT EVERYTHING ELSE AS IT LEFT THE PRODUCTION LINE. THE VEHICLE HAS COMPLETELY ORIGINAL PANELS. NEVER BEEN WELDED AND RETAINS IT'S ORIGINAL PAINT AND LIMITED EDITION STICKER SET.

AFTER AN EXTENDED TEST DRIVE. WE CAN REPORT EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY IN THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE. IT HAS ALSO BEEN ACCREDITED WITH A VOSA MOT TEST CERTIFICATE WITH NO ADVISORY INFORMATION! PURCHASING THIS CAR TODAY REALLY IS LIKE GOING BACK IN TIME TO THE MG/ROVER MAIN AGENT TO RECEIVE DELIVERY AS NEW.

THE MG FACTORY THAT PRODUCED THE MGB GT. IN ABINGDON. OXFORDSHIRE. CLOSED FOREVER ON THE 20TH OCTOBER 1980. THIS LIMITED EDTION MODEL WAS FINISHED ON TH 10TH OCTOBER SECOND TO THE LAST EVER CAR PRODUCED WHICH NOW RESIDE'S IN GAYDEN MOTOR MUSEUM. 580 OF THE LIMITED EDITION PEWTER METALLIC CARS WERE PRODUCED AS A CELEBRATION OF THE MODEL AND THIS IS NO. 579.

SUCH A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY OWNERSHIP OF A BRITISH ENGINEERING ICON IN THE MOST IMMACULATE AND ORIGINAL CONDITIONS AVAILABLE.

OBVIOUSLY HAVING NEVER BEEN RESTORED IN ANY RESPECT AND ONLY MAINTAINED TO THE HIGHEST OF STANDARDS BY MG MAIN AGENTS. YOU COULD CRITICISE AREAS OF AGE AND USE BUT THIS CAR WOULD WIN A CONCOURS COMPETITION IN IT'S CLASS FOR ORIGINALITY ALONE. STILL RETAINING IT'S ORIGINAL DEALER NUMPER PLATES AND TAX DISC HOLDER.

MR DUDLEY ORDERED THE OPTIONAL DEALER EXTRA'S OF FULL CHASSIS SEALING WHICH IS DOCUMENTED AND FITMENT OF THE MANUFACTURER APPROVED GOLDE ELECTRIC TILT & SLIDE SUNROOF WHICH IS AN EXTREMELY RARE OPTION THAT MOSTLY FOUND HOME TO VEHICLES EXPORTED TO THE UNITED STATES.

YOU MUST VIEW THIS VEHICLE TO BELIEVE IT - AS PHOTOGRAPHED. THE DOCUMENTATION IS COMPLETE WITH STAMPED SERVICE HISTORY AND A COMPLETE RECORD OF IT'S LIFE.

PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO VIEW IN OUR SHOWROOM IN CHELTENHAM. GLOUCESTERSHIRE.
