This is a very early MGFcar built in October 1995 and was one of the first 1325 built at the famous Longbridge MG Rover plant which was abandoned more than a decade ago. This MGF started out life as a Right Hand Drive car and was imported from Japan. The previous Vancouver Island owner, a hobby mechanic, did the left hand conversion as well as other upgrades.The MGF was introduced in 1995 to worldwide acclaim and heralded the return of MG to volume 2-seat sports car production that the marque vacated with the close of Abingdon in 1980. It was created using novel design and a very considerable degree of ingenuity on the part of engineers. Initially available in September 1995 as just a single model with a 120ps 1796cc K series engine, then followed in 1996 by the VVC (Variable Valve Control) version of the same engine that delivered 25ps more at higher RPM.
Power steering, power windows, antilock brakes, new stereo, brand new tires,brake pads, rear window recently replaced.
The current owner had the timing belt & water pump replaced recently as well as a broken engine mount and cam cover gasket.. A new hood cover makes the cosmetic appearance much better when the top is down. This is an occasional driver used for pleasure and British Car Shows only.
