    Bardiman Grey "Here is a pic of an MGA I once owned. On behalf of its present owner I restored this car in 2004. It was originally locally assembled by BMC at its Zetland (NSW - Australia) Plant in 1958. It has always been painted Bardiman Grey". -- Doug Hastie
    Apparently the light colored convertible top is an aftermarket change, as it is reported that all Australian CKD cars were originally equipped with black vinyl top.
