In late 1967, sufficient changes were introduced for the factory to define a MGB Mark II model. Changes included synchromesh on all 4 gears with revised ratios, an optional Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, a new rear axle and an alternator in place of the dynamo with a change to a negative earth system. To accommodate the new gearboxes there were significant changes to the sheet metal in the floor pan, and a new flat-topped transmission tunnel. All models are rear-wheel drive. Rubery Owen Rostyle wheels were introduced to replace the previous pressed steel versions in 1969 and reclining seats were standardized in 1970. 1971 also saw a new front grille, recessed, in black aluminium. The more traditional-looking polished grille returned in 1972 with a black "honeycomb" insert. 1970 saw split rear bumpers with the number-plate in between, 1971 returned to the earlier five-piece style.
This MG was bought by the vendor through a local solicitor, who was acting upon instruction from a local family who's parents had unfortunately gone into care due to dementia. The vehicle had been owned by its current registered keeper for almost 34 years, and upon speaking to a member of his family whilst collecting it, to say it was his pride and joy was an understatement.
The car has almost all its MOTs since circa 1975, and this almost certainly guarantees the mileage. The vendor has done as many checks as possible and has found no reason to disbelieve it. The car has a service history portfolio that has been meticulously maintained and kept. There are also a number of spare parts with the vehicle. The vendor would rate the car as a 9/10 overall, and they have researched worldwide and can actually only find one other automatic example for sale.
