Trusting my memory, I believe that the Denis Ferranti works made all
the original hardtops for the MG cars, better known for the HT's for
the B's, the factory was at Angelsey.

The original hardtop that came from the factory with my MGB was from
the Ferranti company.

And when the spridgets came along, these were intially produced at the
LLangefni works, along with hardtops for all other british, european
and american cars.

 The ferranti HT's were f/g and chrome fittings to closely match a
standard sedan look.
