from Scotland to France|
This MGBGTV8 has had four owners - we
have information on the V8 Database of three owners before the present fourth
owner, Jean Gros.
Gros in Eragny sur Oise, about 16 miles northwest of Paris, has purchased
an MGBGTV8 (Damask 1410) for which he has recently obtained the necessary papers,
the equivalent of a V5C and a local registration plate to replace the original
UK registration number RFS 536 M. This MGBGTV8 was despatched from the MG Plant
at Abingdon on 25th February 1974 to Appleyard in Glasgow. It was then owned for
36 years by Pat Barnet in East Lothian, then Hamish Miller in North
Berwick and Andrew Eddie in Aberdeen from 2014 who registered it with the
V8 Register. In August 2016 Jean Gros purchased the car as the fourth owner
and has now succeeded in registering it in France.|
