Abingdon photos

thats great to see!!!

Wouldn't it be great to have some pics like this of the Jubilee. Why is it so difficult to find anything (pics sales literature):(?

If it ain't broken don't try to fix it as if you do it will definitely break

what wonderful photos !!!!!!

Great photos. There was a photo taken in a book that I have somewhere that I cant find at present (it was large & possibly by Malcolm Green) that had a photo of the despatch area at Abingdon full of Jubilees.

I remember the comment along the lines of they were all fitted with V8 style alloys, except one that quite clearly had rostyles with I am sure white-wall tyres.

Dont believe all you read in books!!

Found the book - MG Sportscars by Malcolm Green - a large red book with "proper" 1950s TF on the front.

Photo on page 136 taken in May 1975 of brand new Jubilees with what looks like a small Union jack sticker at bottom of tailgate window.

One car defo has rostyles and whitewalls and one looks to have chrome mirrors rather than black and possibly chrome strips rather than green.

I think they were all individual!!

Hi Dickster...Any chance of scanning/uploading the photo to the site?

Fantastic photo's!!! Just to think one of those Le Roadsters could be mine! I wish it still looked like that 🙁

The press pack of the Jubilee is very rare so good luck to anyone who can find/afford one!!

I have scanned in a photo from the book and will upload it onto the Jubilee non-members section. Sorry for the poor quality but I rarely use my scanner and have not got tiem to fiddle around with it.

Did such a thing exist?

Thanks for such a great/rare photo

Those are great pictures, I was kind of surprised by the way the cars where being build. Not really an assembly line but it appears to be station to station with a lot of hand work. No matter they put out great cars!

The building of the MGB and Midget are comprehensively described in my book "Aspects" of Abingdon" which is where all the L.E photos were taken from. The book can be ordered from the MGB Register of the MG Car Club, also from the MG Owners Club. Ken Smith.
