It’s more than likely a 135, the cabin photos shows us heated rear window & front fog lamp switches, there is no chrome pack & from the exterior shots, standard wheels, with no obvious evidence of four pot callipers.
Non of this detracts from the cracking deal you’ve done & if you turn this into the type of dolly you did with the f your on to a sure winner.

There is a useful VIN decoder on Ultimate MG which will tell you what you need to know, alongside the paint and trim codes.

Ah yes a Cool Blue spec ( just not in blue paint) makes sense.
The Alcantara and foglights made me wonder if it was a Sunstorm at first but it doesnt have the 11 spoke wheels or chrome ashtray so I guessed a different edition.

Can you see if you have the optional AP 4 pot front callipers ?

It's a nice vehicle! Same spec as mine, MBB paint code is Starlight Silver, can be obtained from Halfords, of all places! I paid £850 for mine a few years ago.
My soft top is Navy Blue, I see yours looks black?

The top is black .The car has obviously been standing outside for some time as there is green algae everywhere The last but one MOT was in 2019.However it passed the MOT in August of this year but rear calipers and pads were changed before the test .Fortunately since Ive been restoring classics for some years as a hobby ,I have a paint supplier.The advantage with him,is that I can get paint matched up to the original Len

I knew the rear screen was cracked ,but I folded the hood down (,which has the usual problem of needing the extra elastic straps fitting) and the rear screen broke up So another job to do . Ive Jacked the car up to give it a good coat of underseal and rectify any rust problem on the off side at the same time .

You knew the screen was cracked! That looks more like a jewellers shop window after a ram raid!

If that is an original zip in rear screen Len I think you may be able to use the surprisingly good zip in screen that was on my old, holey, hood.
Ive since fitted a hood with a solid glass screen so cant think I'll use the clear plastic one - yours for the cost of postage and 2 cans of beer. Let me know and i'll drill out the rivets along the bottom edge and post it.
