I'm not massively into these, honest, but, er, these two others that I took photos of at Brooklands in January were both N reg too, so unless there's an 'over enthusiastic' arm of the enthusiasts club I reckon 74/75 is a safe bet:

Edit: I've zoomed into the badge on the wing and I think it says 1925-MG-1975 so 50th anniversary model I assume?

Yes Jubilee that one 50 years MG or something, should have a plaque on the dash.

All have the same paint and wheels.

They try to ask more for them but the ones I looked at were rough.

You could always ask them to swap know you've had one to practice on...

Can't be worse than it was, and much cheaper.

Get it bought. Can buy a welder with the money you save.

I had 2, it cost £10 extra to put the second one on my Classic policy.

Have you space at the new house for a second?

If so you could strip the red one and build modern running gear into it, I imagine that could be the perfect car for you - classic looks but lots of electronic challenges to keep you busy

Unfortunately I've only had an offer accepted. Quite a while left to actually getting a new pad unfortunately. I even need to find somewhere first!

Tbh now I'd have continued bidding on this till I won:

I was so tempted! But just no place to put it and I need to save my pennies.

Agreed, the white stripes are a crap popular beat combo & look as bad as they sound on that car.

I really liked the stripes and thought it suited it! I also like the fact there is a historic back story to it. There are far more horrific things you can do to mod cars.

 

A bit like this poor old thing. I wish I could buy that and fix its appearance back to what it came out the factory like.

Something like this could be a quick and easy way to resolve that:

Even just stripping it and having it sprayed black/grey/etc would look a lot better.

Same here.

 

Top tip shitters - don't let your 4 year old daughter do the dash while you paint the outside of your car.

If my 4 year old had done it, it would be perfectly acceptable.
