If it's okay with you, I'll also point out its been relisted at £2500 buy it now despite finishing at £2700 reserve not met last time.

Again, not knocking the price of ''our cars''

Turns out its a little bit more special than a normal LWB

This vehicle was the 3rd 75 Limousine to run off the production line, out of 35
This vehicle was the 2nd 75 Limousine 2.5 V6 Connoisseur SE to be made out of 15
This vehicle was the 1st 75 Limousine in Black Olive (Special Metallic) (code: IAH) to be made out of 5 Black Olive (Special Metallic) 75 Limousines

Oxford leather seats I think they are called. Have only seen 2 other sets in the 12 years of ownership.

I'm pretty sure they are not Oxford leather. That description was used for the cream leather sports-style seats that were a monogram option and appeared on a few cars.


The seats shown were the last redesign before MG Rover went bust. I think they would probably have become a standard fit for exaample on the V8's had liquidation not occured. They did, as was pointed out above, appear in at least one brochure for a Chatsworth V8, and I have seen one other set on a LHD 'shorter' limo.


Not sure why the seller seems to think only two V6 limos were produced - I have two myself!



I also have (and they have been standing for some time) the NI Police limo with deep sea green interior, and one of only a few facelift diesel limos. Both might be for sale but need a lot of work!

They're not Oxford leather seats, they're "Monogram Classic" seats, as I said in post 7 .

That's interesting. If you click on the original Ebay link in the first post you can go through all the times its been relisted.
1/ Bidding ended £2750
2/ Bidding ended £2500
3/ Bidding ended £1995
4/ Now up at a fixed £3990. Optimistic considering the final bid on the previous three auctions.

I think the owner has used parts from another lwb to do it up, he's selling 2 - one is for parts. How sad.
