1. MGB Roadster, registration BGJ 849B.

This MG picture is one of many original photos featured in the oldclassiccar car photo section.
MGB Roadster
This clear photograph shows a black MGB Roadster (with hardtop) leaving Gloucester Place, in front of the Gloucester Arms pub in central London, back in the swinging 60s.
A quick nosey on the Motor Vehicle Licencing site turns up some amazing information - this car is still on the road!!! it was first registered 14 July 1964, and is currently on the road. Engine size is the usual 1798cc (B Series). Does anyone know who owns this MG now? I'm sure they'd like to see this photo from when their car was new, or nearly new. It looks like a little cracker, with its hard top, wire wheels, and whitewall tyres. The pub is still in business too, although a great deal more roadside furniture is now in front of it. The MGB was launched as a range in 1962, replacing the outgoing MGA.

2. A 1966 registered MGB Roadster.

Next MG photo, a front-end shot of a 'D' registered (1966) MGB Roadster on wire wheels. Does LLP 614D still exist too? In this photo, the MG is in good company - an early Farina-shape Morris Oxford to the left, with a Hillman Minx, A55 Cambridge Mk2 and a few other cars parked in the same spot. LLP is a London series, first used in May 1966.
