J.U.L.E. was established October 2007 as the only known dedicated register to all, and only, special edition MGB's, MGC's or Midgets which left (or were comissioned by) the Abingdon factory between 1962 and 1980 (this includes any special prototypes or race prepared cars and the U.S. 1975 anniversary special/Limited Edition specials)-If you own one we would love to hear from you.
Obviously the two well known special models of MGB were namely the Jubilee in 1975 and Limited Edition (otherwise known as L.E.) in 1980, ironically they were both produced to and celebrate completely opposite events.
If you own a MGB Jubilee,Limited Edition (L.E.) or any other MG special why not join our group (http://www.mgbjubilee.com/register.php or use the link at the top right hand side of this page) where you can contribute & share valuable information with other like minded owners. As a member you will be able to read about the history, join the discussion forum and get info on technical matters as well as help with restoration and benefit from our group buys. What are you waiting for?
If you used to own one of these special MG's and want to know of its wherabouts today then please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and hopefully we can let you know.
Please note that it is a requirement of the club that all new potential members must currently own one of the models and that they must be prepared to submit the full details of their vehicle prior to becoming a member-membership to our club is currently free. After registering all new potential members will have their cars details requested (via a seperate email),these must be recieved back by us before your account can be fully activated-If we do not recieve this information within 7 days of our request your registration will be automatically declined and a new one will need to be submitted.
If you are thinking of buying or selling either a Jubilee or LE model and want us to carry out a free data check (to give you peace of mind that it is a genuine car) or if you have any other questions or queries then please send them to email@example.com.

MGB LE Roadster (NPD 333W) flew the flag for the mgb jubilee as the only Jubilee car attending. A great day was had by all and the weather was also on our side. about 200 cars turned out for this event.
Due to closing down my Fabrication workshop I no longer have space for my Jubilee MGB. I have certificates of authenticity plus many other invoices etc of works carried out previously. I have carried out little works to the Jube since aquiring her. The doors have been removed, Windscreen and bonnet; it requires some body work and some work to the floor pan. I will be putting it on Ebay in the near future. :-(
Well finally finished is my jubilee just taken her on a 450 mile round trip from west to east coast then back for final check to make sure all is well. Stripes provided by member Raceman are perfect sets the car off realy well got lots of comments about how well the car looked thanks to the club for all the help see you at one of the shows Tommo. alias Andy

MGB GT or Roadster and would like to know that you are getting a genuine car (unfortunately there are fakes around); then if you let us know the chassis number,registration number and whether it has wire or alloy wheels we will gladly check against our factory database (which lists every car produced) and confirm for you (if you have any other questions then feel free to ask)
New O.E.M. Spec Plaque Badges For The Jubilee & L.E.
If you are looking for a new or replacement dashboard plaque for your Jubilee or L.E. (yes L.E.) then please read on.
Through the necessity of needing a replacement for my Jubilee I purchased a reproduction item via eBay. Having recieved the item I was so disappointed with its quality versus the original that I have had a limited number re-manufactured to the original factory specification.
Each plaque will come both engraved and complete with the original fixings which means that is is not stuck to the dash and no holes need drilling.
The amazing cost for one of these is only £21 each (inc p&p) and comes with your MG's sequential chassis number (you get to decide what you want engraved at the bottom-upto 16 characters inc. spaces).
All of the 24 originally ordered for March delivery have now gone but due to the success and quality of the product the club has decided to have a further batch of 10 produced and they will be available from mid June 2010.
I have also looked at reproducing a virtually identical plaque for the LE (something that the factory omitted to do) in a colour scheme of red print on a pewter background-thus matching the badge scheme on the L.E. These are now being manufactured (July 2010) and will be available from mid August. They will also be supplied engraved with a car number (relative to the sequence of the chassis numbers) and either the first owners name, owners personal choice or 'Limited Edition' at its base.
The cost for one of these (during the group buy) is also only £21 including p&p.
If you are interested in either of these unique offers you must already either be or need to register as a member of the site.
Please note that these may well be a one off orders so if you are interested please add your name to the forum as soon as possible.
The above plaque is of an actual plaque from the first group buy.
