According to the American Specification MGB Parts Catalog published by
the now defunct MG Parts Center Ltd, the combination wiper/wash & O/Drive
switch commenced in October '67 with the introduction of the GHN/D4 
models. This switch continued through the end of GT importation into the
US and through GHN/D5 410000 for the roadster which was the end of the
'76 model year. For '77 and beyond the O/D switch was located in the gear
shift knob.
