1 Owner From Brand New
Original Survivor
Completely Unrestored
56,000 Genuine Miles
Service History From New
Pure British Cool

RUT 702G
Affectionately known as Ruth, this 2+2 chrome-bumper GT went down the Abingdon
production line early 1969 and was dispatched and registered to a Mr Loft of
Desford in Leicester on the 14th April 1969.
The car, as supplied, is finished in very desirable British Racing Green has a
standard Black leather interior and wire wheels. Mechanically, is still to its
original specification, with every instrument and system working as originally
intended – something of a rarity with MGs of this age! It has a working Radiomobile
radio player, MG mats and an optional extra Moto Lita leather steering wheel.

Altogether, a real ‘period’ MGB GT, complete with its original 1969 handbook
and service book, it has a comprehenisve service record and a warranted guaranteed
56000 miles from new. This MG has always been garaged. The fixed-roof MGB GT was
introduced in October 1965, production continued until 1980, however, the early
cars are beautiful and consequently the more collectable.

Ruths Journey
First registered RUT 702G, the car has never been known on any other number and has
been the property of a Mr Loft fron new and ever since. Incredibly, this is a one
owner from new with zero previous keepers and turning 50 years old in a matter of
weeks this is surely a unique story. This MG is entirely original as it left the
factory, the temptation to change anything on it in any way has been resisted. It
wears it original panels and paintwork, original chrome wheel finish, seats, dash,
the whole package is as it left the factory some 50 years ago. To the trained eye a
cursory walk round of the car will quickly reveal that the panel gap is factory and
none of them have ever been removed.
Mr Loft and his wife used the car for day outings and it has never had any harsh use.
The inerior has the slightest of patina, and to be fair it would be a sin to try and
alter anything on what is a historic car with a superb story.

Pictures speak a thousand words and I have attempted to picture all the detailed
areas which on older cars are disappointing and usually only seen with the naked
eye. There is a great joy in the way this car moves along the road and the
natural sound it makes, a classic British Sports car. Gearshifting and clutch
operation are excellent. The body is totally solid and will bring no bother. The
The vehicle is very pleasing to the eye and very much a once in a lifetime car
to own. Having driven the car at length today I can comment that its superb in
all departments and a credit to its custodian of nigh on 50 years. The underside
is solid, straight and without issues.

The model is currently experiencing a surge in values for the best of examples
as is everything in the Classic British Sports car market. The familiar GT outline
was first introduced in 1965 and was actually a groundbreaking piece of design
with Pininfarina penning this sporting hatchback. They just look better and better
with age. A restored MG can be found anywhere, what price do we put on originality?
This really makes it all a bit special. The demand for unrestored swinging 60s MGs
is at all time high, if you can find one. A car for a collector who values
originality and cars in this condition are rare & represent an excellent investment.
