1971 MG 1300

A real rarity these days, the MG 1300 has been overlooked by the market for some time, but that is changing and rightly so given that these cars sport a 1275 twin carb engine that gives them plenty of performance, but also really good ride comfort provided by the Hydrolastic suspension.

Our car has a believed genuine 42,000 miles on the clock and the originality and superb body condition certainly suggests a low mileage car. It is in fact a hard car to fault with a pristine interior which is set off so well with the burr-walnut dashboard. The paint on the car is also in fantastic condition with a flat finish and no dent or dings to be found. The engine pulls well and cleanly. The MG 1300 engine is essentially an eleven-stud head cooper S specification unit. All of the electrics work as they should and the car is MOT’d until May 2016.

The car comes with an assortment of paperwork relating to its early years when it was sold by Park Langley Garage in Beckenham, Kent and we have service history up until 24,000 miles which is detailed within its Passport to Service book. The car was put into storage in 1985 and has only recently resurfaced which leads us to believe the mileage is genuine. There is also a MG 1300 MK2 handbook that comes with the car.

According to the How Many Are left website, only 87 MG1300s remain on the road and given the usability of these cars in modern traffic, we suspect that values will start to rise given their rarity. Spares are readily available in the main owing to the similarities with the Mini and even body panels can be sourced if need be. This is a special car given its condition and is an excellent starter classic that offers the potential to increase in value over the coming years.
