Supplied new to South Africa, the car remains in outstanding condition throughout, a credit to its last owner. Looked after by us for many years, comprehensive history folder, delightfully original. An investment that you can use and enjoy.


Restored many years ago, the bodywork remains in excellent condition with only minor blemishes. The paintwork is bright and glossy with an even finish and polishes up very nicely.


The car performed faultlessly on a test drive of 25 miles, pulling cleanly and without hesitation, the gearbox is direct and easy to use, the clutch is progressive and smooth. No untoward noises were noted and the car felt free from annoying rattles or vibrations.


To compliment the excellent bodywork, all chrome fitting are in good order, there are no broken lenses or other damage. The non standard coloured finish to the radiator surround can, of course, be changed if the new owner prefers. The hood is in good condition, as are the supplied sidescreens meaning that the car can be enjoyed all year round, kept warm by the heat from the engine - export models were not fitted with heaters as standard!


Generally in good order with some minor signs of wear but comfortable and a very pleasant place to be. The dashboard is a delight with a period radio fitted and the original sprung steering wheel.


Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.
