MG at Earl's Court Motor Show 1974

Postby V8webmaster » 31 Dec 2017 15:16

Does any member have any photos of the MG stand at the 1974 show, particularly photos of the two MGBGTV8s on display there? I attach a photo of the BL stands with the MG stand in the distance.

Check out this Youtube video of the 1973 Motor Show. BGTV8 from around 2:34 in.

Keith,
That video clip records the Motor Show in London in 1973. We have that clip as a link on a report on the V8 Website which is part of our Looking Back series for our V8 40th Anniversary in 2018. The two MGBGTV8s featured on the clip are Citron 0798, up on the ramp, (which is currently owned by Robert MacGillivray in Scotland) and Aconite 0799 registered with the V8 Database by a member in NSW Australia.

For the Motor Show in London in 1974 there were two rubber bumpered MGBGTV8s on the stand - Citron 2015 and Bracken 2106 - as the rubber bumpered model had just come in. It's for these two MGBGTV8s I am seeking photos.
