Heritage Trust have confirmed that our 1963 MK1 MGB is a matching numbers car: chassis GHN3L10945 and Engine Number: 8G-U-H 11252 left the factory together on the 25th of April 1963 and are still together today. Shipped to the United States, the cars fascinating history file starts in August 1982 with a Long Beach California Registration Title. Manufactured in Old English White, the file contains a quirky valuation from December 1983 with the car now in green/tan and valued between $6450 and $6700 following a sale for just $500! Imported to Germany in June 1987 by Frau Carla Heusmann, the car is valued the following year at DM16,000 and showing a very believable (1)12,862 miles. It would change hands again in March 1989 before finding its third German owner and soul mate in April 1991, who would retain the car for a commendable 30 years before selling to Cathedral Classics in April 2021. Now showing (1)57,670 miles the car has been astonishingly well documented and also maintained by the same garage (Jann-Dirk Mengers) for the period of ownership. The car, and indeed the file are an MG enthusiast dream and a real credit to the previous owner. Probably one of the best MGB’s Cathedral Classics have ever offered to the market.
