Really nice car, and with the upgraded engine will be a pleasure to drive.

I must get the MG back on the road in 2017...

For me it is whatever one has MOT :D

I should add DEJ 775D was registered in Haverfordwest on 6 October 1966 and the first owner recorded every single thing that was done to the car over a 32 year period. This included in her very early life having the engine upgraded to 1275 cc. This car appeared in the Heartbeat series 8 Episode 4 "Past Crimes" broadcast ITV 8.00 pm Sunday 27th September 1998.

My mate always says the reason this Riley is so good it was well maintained by Bernie Scripps :lol: :lol: :lol:
