It was the 13th L1 four-seat Tourer built out of 258 total, and third in a batch of eight L1 police cars built. All MGs of this period were built in Abingdon-Upon-Thames, England. This example is one of two known remaining L1 police cars. The car has undergone a complete two-year restoration to the original specifications of black exterior, blue leather interior and blue wheels. The interior was imported from Mike Collingburn of North Yorkshire, and the instruments were rebuilt by John Marks of Kent, England. Many original parts were sourced from the UK to ensure authenticity.
