Grover's left rear quarter panel and rear center panel were damaged in a one-car collision with a rain-slick freeway exit ramp wall in April 2016. I'm using this as an opportunity to completely address all deficiencies and perform a bare-metal repaint of the entire car in Jaguar Opalescent Dark Green (when I bought it, it wore Dark BRG). Damaged panels have been replaced with proper British Heritage panels. All work is fully documented and is being done solely by the paint and body shop owner as his schedule permits. Grover will have a new windshield, all new window seals and trim, deletion of side marker lights, new smaller and more efficient AC evaporator/blower to replace the old Vintage Air evaporator situated on the floor of the passenger foot well. When all work is completed to my satisfaction I will likely be reluctantly offering it for sale, as I bought a Downton-style MGC-GT and I can't keep both cars. Grover's title lists it as a 1974 model, but the build date indicates it's actually a late-production 1973, just prior to the switch to the 1974 model year.
