My early MGB (body #1256) is all as original as it could be, save where the rust worms damage needed to be repaired. The engine, body, VIN and other components are as they were when it was built.
I have changed the interior to black from the as-built red, but I always found the way the red seats and black dash clashed a little confusing.
It has an old British Motors radio in it instead of the usual blanking plate, so I suspect that this was added mid 1960s once here, as it is not listed as a build option (although the ashtray is).
The paint is poor, as I did it, so it is a 10 footer, but I do hope to remedy this some day. I drive it every spring through autumn; not far, but driven. We live in Superior, CO (near Boulder) so it does get a little asthmatic in the mountains, making long drives a long day – which is great on occasion.
