Owned by me since 2001. I have restored and upgraded the car so as to keep up with modern traffic with ease without compromising on looks. This MG handles superbly. is always garaged and well looked after with all invoices available on file. The time has come however to move onto another vintage project. and I reluctantly have to part with this car. I will be very sad to see it go as it always turns heads. delivers a smile and much conversation.
All vinyl roundels and names on the front wings are removable.  
The car can be viewed at any time in Chichester. West Sussex by contacting me. but the car is listed elsewhere. and will be removed if sold.
