This is a true time warp, presented in truly exceptional condition and recording just 6,500 miles. The MG has been owned by an MG enthusiast near Middlesbrough since 2012 and he has known this car for 28 years. Whilst on holiday on the South Coast back in 1987, a family friend came along in this 'as new' low mileage MGB. Having owned an MG when 19 years old, he was interested and ask for first refusal should he ever decide to sell the MG. Unbelievably, 25 years later he received the phone call and travelled down to Dorset and drove the MG north, probably its longest ever trip. The MG has spent most of its life garage stored and as a result, has an ultra-low mileage. Although it has had so little use, it has been regularly serviced and has been beautifully maintained and today is in a potential show winning condition when considering the originality.
UDY 287S has an exceptional bodyshell and excellent straight panels. The car has never required bodywork, has not been welded and is an original shell. The paintwork gleams, it has a lovely deep shine. The rubber bumpers are in excellent order, as is the hood and wheels. The engine bay presents as though the car is six months old, the boot area is immaculate and the interior is outstanding. The MG is first class in every respect.
As expected, it drives like and almost new MGB. The engine is strong with no wear, the oil pressure superb, the gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the brakes; suspension and steering are all first class. The MG holds the road perfectly, is tight, sharp and whilst it comes with an MOT certificate, it will be submitted for a full 12 months test and freshly serviced once we sell the car. UDY 287S comes with its original dealer pack from Henlys (South East) Ltd including handbook, Supercover temporary membership card, Leyland Cars registration card, Leyland Cars change of address notification, new vehicle invoice from 1977, tax discs dating back to 1978 and Passport to service book recording two service stamps. This is a collector's piece and examples like this hard to find.
