Had a 70 B in 72 with a factory hardtop... my girlfriend at the time bought a 67 BGT special edition in BRG. Had black leather with white piping, standard tranny and factory a/c, although it was inop and wire wheels... The se 's wore a little union Jack on the right front wing... Was a sweet little car.... Sure wish I had it now. Was exactly like this one...!!

In reply to Tomwas1 :  There was never an option for 'factory air' from BMC or British Leyland on MGs.  I installed a number of dealer installed A/C systems in MGBs and GTs that were made by a company called the Factory Air Co. of San Antonio, TX.

I drove my '72 MGB-GT from 1980 thorugh 2010 as my only car putting nearly 380,000 miles on it.  It now has 433,000 miles and is in the queue for a full restoration.  It never left me stranded and with four Michelin snow tires was the best snowmobile I've ever owned.  I agree with Dick completely - the BGT and P1800es are the best combination of sprots car and hauler ever designed.
