MG MGB Additional Information
This is a really exceptional MGB Roadster. One of the last of the line and registered in August 1981, this car has covered only 38000 miles from new, fully supported by the original service record and MOT history. There is an extensive service history file giving details of previous keepers, receipts , invoices and MOTs.
With all MGBs the condition of the body and structure is critical, and this car is outstanding. It has been Ziebart protected (presumably from new), which has obviously made a major contribution to its present condition, and its last owner had the underside of the car professionally cleaned, rustproofed and Dinitrol protected in 2016 (details are included in the service history). During this process the condition of the body work and structure was carefully inspected and no re-instatement was found to be necessary.
The car is very largely still in its original specification with a few sensible updates. The "deck chair" fabric seat coverings have been replaced, an alternative MG steering wheel and alloy road wheels have been added, and electronic ignition and a Kenlowe adjustable fan have been installed. A hood cover and full tonneau cover are included. The car is in excellent mechanical order and starts, runs, steers and stops exactly as one would expect from a well maintained low mileage MGB. Overdrive on third and fourth gears works perfectly. The current MOT runs until 17th May 2018 with no advisories and the car is HPI clear.
There are many MGB Roadsters available, but very few in this condition with such low mileage and as sensibly priced. Prices for Roadsters in good condition are rising sharply at present and this car will prove a good investment as well as a source of great pleasure to its new owner in years to come.
