Apparently so, it's been removed.

Apart from the title, ( and coupe, datsun, austin triumph are probably to widen the search potential ) the car looks OK. But to claim it has original paint when it seems to be white under the bonnet........

Not a GT, see they've corrected the 1970 back to much more desirable 1963 pull handle, did they have o/d on early CKD cars?

1968 MGB Purchased already dis-assembled but which is largely back together so I'm a lot less ignorant.

I stuck it on my watch list just to see what it goes for. I have a hankering for an early pull handle but not yet as the V8 needs finishing.

PS I haven't looked to see how original it is but that "original paint from factory" and "original wheels with stickers" could be game changers smiling bouncing smiley

I am starting to like that iris blue type colour more and more every time I see it ....especially with white walls .....like Jim's

He has made it look a bit gay with the white tops ...would be much nicer with dark blue tops

The panels don't line up like mine , which makes me doubt the no rust thing .
WTF are those things in the bonnet ??...surely not bonnet pins ??
I thought the steering wheels on the early MK1's were 3 3 spokes and 2 spokes on the bottom ??...did they come out with that wheel ??
Also I thought the iris blue 63's also came with dark blue interior over here also ....though I suppose you could special order ?
He will get his money for that ...probably more

They are asking £15,000 _ £20,000 for good Mk1s here in the UK .........according to e-bay 9,000 Aus is less than £6,000.

I've just got telecommunications! (phone line been out all week). I saw the ad and noticed the number up the top. Taking the first four numbers, they seemed like UK chassis numbers, making the car a 1963 vehicle. Checked my registry and guessed that it was YGHN3 559 (59th car assembled in Australia), first registered 10th Sep, 1963 in Victoria. The Telstra technician has just left so I rang the owner to compare his ID plate with my guess. Perfect match!

Change the last statement in the previous post. I just received a photo of the ID plate and the numbers are different from those I had read to the owner. Here are the details
YGHN3 1002 (UK chassis no. 23244)
Engine No. 18G/U/H 23840
Colour 1/BLACK/1
Date Feb 1964

So his first point of it being an unrestored blue 1963 car turns out to not be true (originally a 1964 painted black)....why would you believe anything else the ad says?

Those stickers were the same as the stickers that were on my new 15" from MWS.
