Footnotes

  • This MGB GT had been in the hands of the then owner (its fourth) for some 13 years when it was sold by Brooks at their Olympia sale on 7th December 1999 (Lot 953). At that time the mileage appears to have been just under 19,000, a figure which, although it cannot be guaranteed, seems to be supported by numerous expired MoT certificates on file. The purchaser retained the MG until the current vendor bought it in November 2006 at 24,600 miles, an increase of under 6,000 miles in seven years. The vendor has added fewer than 4,000 miles to the total since acquisition.

    At some time the car has been embellished by the addition of many stainless steel and chromium plated items such as sills, air filters and the rocker cover, while other noteworthy features include the overdrive gearbox, a stainless steel exhaust system and Webasto sunroof. A number of 'extras' come with the vehicle, including a tailored cover, front-end muffler, chromium headlamp guards, etc. The vendor has fitted a new battery and new tyres all round. We are advised that the car drives beautifully and it is only the opportunity to purchase an early MGB roadster that has prompted the owner to sell. Finished in black with matching interior, 'HLL 600V' is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to October 2013, Swansea V5 document and an extensive history file.
