Of course, I have the V5, the Exempt status is current, and you can view the MOT record on the DVLA website!Reimported by California Classics, Hull in 1999, converted to rhd, and restored by them for a private buyer. Ivor Searle reconditioned engine fitted at that time. Their build sheets included in my comprehensive history file. I guess the recorded mileage is what the car has covered since then. Subsequently 2 changes of keeper before me. Although standard spec the engine drives well and the modern 5-speed box is a vast improvement over the MG one with much better intermediate ratios for modern traffic, and without the complexity and weight of the overdrive unit. The Mazda clutch is very sweet. Suspension and brakes remain standard spec, and they display no shortcomings.
The car was driven to MGB60 in 2022 at Gaydon and appeared in the 'front-row'. Has been to other shows too.
She will come with a number of spares and consumables. The MG overdrive gearbox (-in working order) and new unused 55A alternator and brake servo are also available at negotiable prices.
