WHAT HAPPENED AT THE OTHER END

I received a most interesting email and attachment from the Director of the MGCC (UK).

Written in 2012, George Wilder, Director of the MGCC (UK) penned an article “…to set aside some of the myths about the Abingdon MG plant…” .  The article was fact-checked by Peter Neil, the MGCC archivist.  “Peter is an ex MG Apprentice who worked at Abingdon – mainly in the design field – right until the end in 1980 when he went to work for GM in the USA then came back to work on Aston Martin DB7.

 

You will read that by the time of the MGB, Abingdon was an assembly plant – nothing was made there – with MGB bodies arriving fully trimmed engines assembled etc. Slightly different  for Midgets as you will see attached factory guide.

 

The Nuffield Group had developed a specialised facility at the Cowley works in Oxford (alongside the logically placed Spares Division) to assemble kits for CKD manufacture overseas

of various Nuffield Group vehicles. This carried on to BMC and British Leyland days. When MG volumes increased significantly and the demand for CKD MGs started with the MGA  it was at Cowley that the kits were assembled. By the time of the MGB Abingdon was just an assembly plant. There was nothing for the Abingdon Plant to add to the kits, there was no need for any parts to go to Abingdon, so Cowley bound the parts went. As you will see Abingdon did not have the facility to handle the work illustrated in the CKD manual on your website.  The result is that CKD MGBs are not a product of Abingdon. The Leyland Australia letter refers to in MGB para 10 (see attached letter) cars being built and then knocked down for export. This may have been the practice when CKD production started in the late 1940s. However with the demand for greater local content in places like Australia and the volumes needed, this practice ceased and cars were truly kits rather than KD cars but the CKD name stuck.”

 

It is a most interesting read and helps further paint the picture for the mgb owner, of the era and the process used by BMC/Leyland.
