Over the past eighteen months the MG has been used for shows and weekend touring.

The car has had regular fair weather use over the past 18 months but from 2011 to 2015 BUY 273M was off the road in dry storage. In October 2015 was put back on the road and subject of some light re-commissioning work and covered just 650 miles up to arriving with us in 2017. On the road this V8 is outstanding with impressive power and performance from the 3.5 V8 engine. The four speed gearbox is perfect to use with excellent syncromesh, the overdrive comes in and out smoothly and handling and braking feel top class. BUY 273M is fabulous fun to drive and a car capable of long distance touring.

The MG presents very well with an excellent straight body shell with stunning paintwork of a very high standard.
