From the launch pictures OVP is a original spec 75 , but as the pictures progress she seems to have adopted some ZT part ,hairpin alloys , lip spoiler and also 1 odd wheel on the front ? just what goes on behind those gates ? maybe we could arrange a trolley dash through the disposal yard ,just one day for members to be set loss on the cars with socket sets .

There are more cars on site, but we will have to wait and see what MG GB Ltd are going to release or not release "that is the question".

However S525 OVP will be put back to her launch condition when the club gets her hands on it.

MG.

The car did start out in life as a Rover 75, but when MG Motors took over they re-branded the Rover to MG.

The car will be returned to it's original condition with all the correct badges.
