MGBGTV8 seen for sale in Australia

Jim Livingstone reports this MGBGTV8 is for sale in Australia. It is fitted with 15" x 6" wheels - they are described as "enlarged Factory Dunlop alloy wheels" and the ride seems slightly lower than standard when you see the car in the top two photos alongside. It seems to have the original steering wheel on the platform under the rear hatch.

At current foreign exchange rates this car is on offer at around £43,950. So even in the "Exceptional" condition class with a number of mechanical upgrades it is fully priced.
