B BURIED IN BERK­SHIRE

Classic Sports Car - - Lost & Found -

Ian Ritchie sent in some pho­to­graphs of an aban­doned MGB GT dis­cov­ered lan­guish­ing in the long grass and bram­bles to­wards the end of a rough road that goes past West Berk­shire Golf Club car park. Ritchie’s friend Peter No­ble spot­ted the 1977 BGT while he was out walk­ing near Great Sh­ef­ford, and notes that the car, reg­is­tra­tion SLE 771R, has a We­basto-style sun­roof and that the body looks to be sur­pris­ingly good. It still wears a sticker in the back win­dow for ‘Manor Garages, Manor Road, Wan­tage,’ and No­ble reck­oned that it looked far too tidy to be left to rot.

Think this B de­serves a new lease of life?
