This attractive-looking example of Britain's favourite sports car has Mid Blue bodywork complemented by a Light Tan interior. It's a four owner example that was removed from the road in 2002 and restored over the ensuing seven years, since when it's travelled less than 4,000 miles. The history file contains invoices totalling in excess of £15,000 and the work carried out included a conversion from rubber to chrome bumpers, during which the ride height was lowered to that of the earlier cars. 'KKR 336P' benefits from a handling kit and Spax dampers all-round. Its impressive specification further includes: oil cooler and braided pipes; overdrive; silver coloured wire wheels; wood rim steering wheel; Pioneer radio/CD player; stainless steel door treads; locking fuel cap; and car cover. The vendor classes the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, four-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'good' order and says the venerable MG 'drives exceptionally well'.
