HISTORY FILE
A Heritage Certificate issued on 23rd September 2004 by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust confirms that this example, number 327 of 500, was built on the 28-29th August 1980 and despatched from Abingdon on the 25th November 1980. The destination dealer, Herwin Canny and Company Limited of Woolwich, registered the car new on the 19th February 1981 to the first owner, Mr J Adams. The amazing and frankly colossal history file forms a crucial part of the cars story and begins with the original sales invoice issued by Herwin Canny and Company Limited to Mr Adams detailing the options specified and purchase price of £6,877.79 less £2,502.79 for his 1979 Leyland Mini! The original Passport to Service booklet is stamped by the selling dealer and the last entry is in 2020 with just 1,500 miles covered since. The car has been known to the MG Car Club MGB Register since 1988. Beautifully presented in a tailored made leather binder is a massive chronologically arranged and complete file of invoices dating right back to 1981 with even the running-in service when the car was just three months old! Thorough perusal of the file would consume countless hours and there is a vast amount of paperwork spanning the 1980’s 1990’s and in to the new millennium where in around 2004 a full nut a bolt restoration began. Photographs of the car pre-restoration show a solid and undamaged car that was just awaiting a transformation into the perfect MGB GT LE! The restoration is fully documented both in the history file and photographs and the huge spend on top of the brand-new heritage shell which was sourced and painted by the MG Owners Club, MGOC, would run into tens of thousands of pounds now, a new shell current costing around £13,000 alone! The previous owner was a MG and British Leyland enthusiast with several other classic cars in his collection including a MGR V8 and a Morris Mini Cooper 970S. A collectors quality example of the final MGBGT tribute and a tru
