About this MG B V8

This absolutely stunning MGB V8 Roadster started life as an MGB GT which was first registered on December 2nd 1970 and was the donor car for a complete 'nut and Bolt' rebuild using a brand new British Motor 'Heritage' Roadster body-shell with a new Rover 3950cc V8 Engine with Electronic Fuel injection, Rover 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, MG RV8 Suspension + Spax adjustable shock absorbers, new MGR V8 Disc Brakes, an all new Leather interior, new Chromework, new Glass + all new rubber seals and mouldings, new Wiring Looms, all new ancillaries and and sitting on a set of new Mini-Lite style Alloy Wheels with Dunlop Tyres. The list of new parts is endless!

The rebuild was started in 1998 by a Mr David Heath from Windsor who used Moorcroft Sports Cars in Warfield, Berkshire to carry out certain works, but unfortunately due to ill heath he was unable to complete the works so he sold the car to a Mr Robert Van Venrooij who was a neighbour in September 2001. He subsequently commissioned M Taylor Coachworks in Slough to complete the rebuild and it was only finally completed 12 years later in 2013.

The car was first MOT'd on completion on 17th June 2013 with the mileage on the speedometer reading 29,561 miles and it now reads 29,846, so it has only covered an unbelievable 285 miles since completion. Almost everything on this car was either new or reconditioned and the Heritage bodyshell was purchased from Summit Motors MG Centre in Maidenhead together with a substantial amount of other parts for the car, plus other MG parts suppliers and all invoices are contained in the history file. Well over £25,000 was spent on the rebuild alone without taking into account the cost of the donor car and a considerable amount of labour time from the previous owner.

Mr Van Venrooij only drove the car 149 miles before he gave us the car to sell on his behalf in July 2014 as he was re-locating back to Holland. It was sold by us on 1st August 2014 to someone living locally to our showrooms and he put the car into storage as part of his small collection. He has rarely driven the car and has only covered 136 miles in his 7 years of ownership and has now decided to sell his collection, so we now have it back to sell for him.

It is finished in a beautiful Jaguar Bordeaux Red Metallic with Beige Leather trim piped in Red, Black carpets, a Black Mohair Soft Top, Roll-Bar, a JVC Stereo/Cassette player with a CD stack in the boot, a lovely Burr Walnut dashboard, Wooden Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, Wooden MG Gear Knob, larger Chrome MX5 Door Mirrors, Remote Alarm/Immobiliser + 2 x sets of Keys and fobs, Mini-Lite style spare wheel, fully carpeted boot area + spare wheel cover, a really comprehensive history file with some early photo's of the donor car and new body-shell being built by the owner, MG Handbook and Haynes Workshop Manual,

We can honestly say that we have never had an MGB quite like this, as it is simply exceptional throughout and looks as though it has just rolled off the end of the production line in Abingdon! With the upgraded Fuel injected Rover 3950cc V8 Engine and Five Speed Gearbox, it is also wonderful to drive and certainly no slouch!

This is a great chance for someone to buy a car that would certainly cost well in excess of £45,000 to build today and an investment that can be driven and enjoyed!

Upon sale the car will receive a pre-sales service/checkover and new MOT and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
