The MGB is a classic British sports car manufactured in numbers to cater for the insatiable appetite for open top motoring in the 1960s and 1970s. Built with rugged mechanics and powered by the un-burstable, all-iron BMC B-Series, 1800cc engine, the MGB was of lightweight monocoque construction and incorporated crumple zones designed to protect the occupants.
Originally registered 1st April 1971, this well-presented example is resplendent in red coachwork over a cognac leather interior with a superb walnut dashboard. Treated to an extensive body-off restoration some years ago which included repair and restoration of the chassis, a full respray to the bodywork, an extensive engine rebuild and a new interior. Various other works were also completed which included many mechanical parts being renewed and restored as well as new chrome wire wheels being fitted. A mohair hood is also fitted to this MGB which is in very good condition, important for the UK summer months! The general condition of this MG is very good, the coachwork and brightwork are all in very good condition only showing a few minor age-related blemishes, as to the interior and engine bay. Reported by the vendor to run and drive very well indeed, this MG fires up when asked and has recently completed a trip from the Cotswolds to our storage facility in Iver, with no issues to report.
Offered with a sizeable history file including many invoices detailing the restoration, various sundry bills and invoices, old tax discs and MoT test certificates, and its current V5C registration document. MGs are well supported by several specialists resulting in a motor car that is, not only straight forward to maintain but also great fun to drive. If you are looking for a well sorted example this is surely top of the list.
