I never knew that!

Last MGB imported to the USA.
On 9th Febuary 1981 Henry Ford II bought the last MGB imported
to the USA. His father Edsel had bought the first imported MG
32 years before. Both MGs were placed in the Ford Museum.
The author David Knowles reports that the car was sold off by
the Ford Museum and the new owner set out to drive it without
checking the integrity of the old rubber fuel pipes. The result
was it caught fire and was badly damaged. But it was restored
and was last known of in Canada. Do you know the whereabouts
of this car today?
