Year of first Mk2 B10m? (mk1 b10m)

Simple (?) question, but one I have not found the answer to as yet. What year where the first Mk2 B10m's introduced?

I am looking to buy an early B10m, but am told parts for the mk1 are harder to come by, hence the question.


Thanks

Daniel

At the top of that page is the serial number ranges for the different versions.

I have just found a 1986 B10M Mk2 , so thats becoming the oldest I have found so far to date.

Does this count as a 'future classic' you never see a mk1 on the road anymore, and they are now 30yo and being sold left right and centre for very little money indeed.
