Classic Car Auctions says:

A truly time warp condition MGB'GT'...
Presented in Old English White with a rare "Deck Chair" grey and black stripe interior, JAK 471W was supplied to its first owner, a lady from Rotherham, on the 18th of September 1980 by ROCAR, a local MG dealer.There is a copy of the original invoice with the car showing a sale price of £5,388.00 which included a tow bar and the all important 'Ziebart' rust proof protection, which is probably why it is still with us today!

After purchasing the car it was used sparingly, and then placed in dry storage, before being dragged out for, what we believe, was its first MoT in 18 years. After the owner passed away, it became her son's property in 2002 and was again used for a short period and then dry stored up until 2014. This MG still has the feel of a new car and its condition suggests it's about 5 years old not 36! 

This surely must be one of the lowest mileage MGBs available on the market today, and would certainly be a great addition to any collection, be it just to admire or to use occasionally on Car Club events or rallies. Come and have a look - it will take you back in time.
