is a rare colour (similar to Harvest Gold) used on the very early MGBGTV8s and
0156 is a Pre-Production car from 1973. It was mounted on the line on 15th May
1973 and went through paint finishing on 14th June with despatch to Carey &
Lambert in Southampton on 8th
August just a week before the launch of the model. The car was previously owned
by Terence Bloomfield in Hampshire with the registration plate NOW 210 M. |
information and photos are from Victor Rodrigues (who runs the successful Swiss
MGV8-IG) through his local contacts as he originally comes from Portugal.
photos in the report suggest the car is finished in Glacier White rather than
Limeflower but they clearly indicate a substantial restoration will be necessary.
