Footnotes

  • Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962, the MGB would turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time. Attractively styled, cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the 'B' carried on MG's traditional role of providing affordable sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast. Its popularity remaining undiminished today, the classic MGB is one of the easiest sports cars of its era to run and maintain in the 21st Century, being served by a worldwide industry of spare parts and service providers.

    As well as being a desirable chromed bumper model, this MGB GT also boasts the optional wire wheels and overdrive transmission, and thus is to what many would consider the ultimate specification. The car was restored in 2002 while in the possession of a previous owner, when work carried out included converting the engine to accept unleaded fuel. Its current owner purchased the MG at Bonhams' Harrogate sale in November 2008 (Lot 670) since when it has been kept in museum storage. The previous owner had described the car as in generally very good condition and reported that driving it gave him a great deal of pleasure. It was only offered for sale - complete with tax and MoT - because his arthritis made ingress and egress increasingly difficult. Finished in red with black leather interior, 'LJU 526E' is offered Swansea V5 document.
