Left hand drive model built in 63. Good condition when bought. Restored to as close as original as possible. I wanted the car to look just like the ad picture on my page. Must give credit to Ben McCarty in Jenks that did the interior, and Iron Horse in Sand Springs OK that did the paint.

Thanks, but I can't take credit for the work. Well 2, no make that an entire 2.5% of hard work was mine. I just added the people who deserves the credit to my page. They did do a fantastic job.

Mark, your 62 looks great. That is a rare barn find. In answering your question I would have to say maybe. The guy that did the body work does order from moss and I can say these are new. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Very nice, Jim.I have a '65 Iris blue as well, badly in need of new upholstery. Who did the work on your seats? What a great job he did. I would gladly send my seats to the guy to have the needed work done.Thanks.Terry

Great car Jim. Ironically, I have a 1964 Iris MGB, I lived in Catoosa, OK 6 years ago, and my name is also Jim S.I currently live in Winfield, KS and my MGB is in pieces patiently awaiting its restoration.
