I'm currently researching the early history of my December 1977 Federal-spec, LHD, UK-registered Roadster. It was used until December 1980 as a factory development car, much of the work relating to smog and emissions testing. It was also used for a number of other developments (which explains, for example, the fitment of a Rover SD1 "safety" steering wheel). A journal documents the tests that took place. More info may be found at If anyone remembers the car during its time at BL/MG, I'd love to hear about it.
