808 JEA in MG Enthusiast

October 2008 

(Photo shoot by John Colley)

I hope you enjoy these detailed photographs of my January 1963 UK pull handle MGB, tastefully restored to near original spec by a previous owner, the late John Pargeter. 



I bought 808 JEA in August 2002, to join my 1972 MGBGT, owned since 1977.  Although the new arrival had been very conservatively and very well restored, a few changes have been made to bring it even closer to the original spec and since I found it quite difficult to come by detailed photographs to assist me, I think it a good idea to share my pictures with others.

My objective has not been to produce a concours car, but to produce a car looking exactly as it did a year or so out of the showroom, going about its normal daily duties with a caring owner.   This is why, although I am a member of both the MGOC and the MG Car Club, I never display any badges!

If there are details about the car you would like to discuss with me, or you can point out possible improvements or changes I might make, I'll be happy to hear from you.
