BMC Your Passport to Service

355

This is a cool little service book you got when you bought an MGB in the 60’s. At some point I’ll have to scan it completely as it’s quite interesting from a historical point of view.

Here you can see that my father purchased his MGB GT on January 9, 1968 from Peter Satori Ltd. in Pasadena, California. The MGB GT’s must not have been selling quickly at this time as the car was manufactured near the beginning of 1967. Perhaps it was the Sandy Beige color that wasn’t overly popular but makes it somewhat rare today.

This little booklet was used to log your service trips on the BMC Maintenance Service Schedule and Record. I’m not sure why the 9,000 mile service isn’t filled in as the MGB was serviced at 9,896 miles when a new fuel pump was put in. I don’t have any records of a normal 9,000 mile service.

There’s a section towards the end where BMC approved accessories are shown, Custom Transistor Radios by Motorola radios and BMC/Coolaire Air-Conditioning. A few BMC-AMCO products are listed as well.
