GWY 220J was first registered on the 1st January 1971 and is finished in British Racing Green with Black upholstery and original Rostyle wheels. From correspondence in the history file we know the MG has been in the North of England since 1977. From 1977 to 1992 the MG was in Thirsk, North Yorkshire before being sold to a new owner in Leeds. During the late 1990s the MG was in Newcastle, later Sunderland and more recently Cheshire.
We know the MG was off the road for several years from 2005 but in 2010 when changing hands, the MG was treated to some mechanical re-commissioning work. We have receipts detailing various work to include fitting a lead free cylinder head, new water pump, new heater hoses and new ignition items. In 2012 the brakes were overhauled with new wheel cylinders and brake shoes and there are also invoices in 2013 for a new clutch, starter ring gear, spigot bushes, clevis pins, bolt and bush release arms and a new pedal box.
Since the above work the MG has been covering relatively low mileage and has been continually improved. Having had the various mechanical re-commissioning works the MG (2015) has now had a programme of cosmetic improvement work carried out.
