My '65 iris blue MGB has the same features as yours, with a mix of pieces of both early and later Mk 1 cars.

Don,I've kind of enjoyed the "in between" of my B. Is yours disc wheel or wires? I have the original disc wheels with the "baby moon" hub caps, but I usually have the minilites on with some less-than-30-year-old tires!Thanks for the contact,Jim Spurgeon

Jim, sorry for being so late in replying. My car has wire wheels. I like the look of disc wheels, but I also know they are really narrow, so maybe wires are best as they are slightly wider.
