Pat:

This looks like a later model - maybe early 70s version. The 1964 model -
at least in the US - had smaller taillights and chrome bumbers that were not
as high as the later model's bumpers.

The wrap-around bumper shown on this model came out in 1979, if you want to
use that as a reference for a model year.

To larmcd and Thomas ---

Fellas I appreciate with what you're saying and ordinarily I'd agree - hence
my disclaimer on the first picture - but here's a closeup of the note in the
windshield:

I have no further explanation.

He must have been promoting the availability of the '64 on the later-model
car.

I didn't see that.
Just added 2 cents to the reply on year of rear view.

Thanks for heads up, Pat.

I think that must be the answer. I'd be very surprised if someone were
to convert a 1964 car to later spec; the black bumpers, which appeared
first in 1975, are deemed ugly by most MGB enthusiasts, and this car is
painted in a late-1970s colour and has the style of dashboard first
introduced in 1976. The earlier cars are generally more valuable than
the later ones, so why go to the expense of updating one? I've heard of
post-1975 cars being converted back to chrome bumpers, but never the
other way round.
