Barrie, there is one North America version, factory, LHD, MGB V8 that I saw 
at University Motors.  John Twist told me that MG sent eight of them over to 
see how they would fly here.  (Like that would be a question.)  Out of the 
eight, seven were shipped back.  One remains here.  As I recall, it is owned 
by a gent in either Indiana or Ohio.  Sorry, I don't remember exactly where 
it calls home.  You could email or call John for more info, but I do believe 
that means there is one quasi-official, NA version,  V8, MGB in existence 
and in-country as we speak.

Don't argue this point with me as all of my info came from John Twist.  All 
who wish to tell John that he doesn't know MGBs may argue with him.  Good

I believe there were none officially imported but obviously some
people have brought them in.  There are at least two in this area
(south Ontario).   I think I am right in saying that you will never
find one with a left hand drive dash 'cos the factory did not make
any - but more knowledgeable bods may contribute more.
