MG MGB Additional Information
This lovely MGB Roadster is in outstanding condition throughout and is ready to drive and enjoy immediately. Subject to a comprehensive and high quality restoration in the mid nineties it has been carefully used and maintained since that time, travelling only 11000 miles since 1995. Prior to my purchase in late 2016 the car had only two owners since 1995, one from 1995 until 2007 and the second from 2007 until 2016.
There is an album of photographs of the restoration, which included a complete strip down and rebuild, and the proud restorers added their plaque under the bonnet.
The car is a real pleasure to drive with the roof up or down and is completely sound structurally with excellent paintwork and chrome. Finished in dark British Racing Green with oatmeal leather seats, green carpets, and fitted with a lovely alloy Moto-Lita steering wheel and chrome luggage rack it is lovely looking roadster which always attracts favourable attention.It has overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears, which works as it should.
In addition to the restoration album there is a small history file with lots of old MOTs and numerous service invoices and receipts. The current MOT expires on 25th March 2018 and the car is, of course, HPI clear.
Unlike so many MGBs on the market today this car neither needs work nor has it recently been subject to a "cosmetic" refurbishment. Its earlier high quality restoration has stood the test of time in every respect and, with the care and attention which I am sure its new owner will be delighted to give it, will continue to give pleasurable and reliable service for many years to come.
