About this MG B

The MGB was first introduced in 1962 at the Earls Court Motor Show and it was to become Britain's best selling medium sized sports car of all time. Brought in to replace the already successful MGA, this all new unitary construction 2-seater was powered by a 1798cc version of the BMC B series engine, which went on to power MGB & MGB GT models virtually unchanged (except for a 5 bearing crankshaft instead of 3 from 1964) for another 18 years. This engine was coupled to a 4-speed manual gearbox with an optional Overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears, suspension was by Coil Spring and Wishbones at the front and semi elliptic Leaf Springs at the rear, with Lever Arm Dampers all round. Front Disc Brakes were standard and it has Rack & Pinion Steering. The MGB range was finally discontinued in 1980, but the popularity of the MGB remains tremendous, with the model being well catered for by clubs and parts manufacturers and everything is still available including new body shells!

This lovely MK1 'Pull Door Handle' MGB - Chassis no: G-HN3/44051 and Engine No: 18GA-RU-H/13003 is according to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, a 'Matching Numbers' car and was built in Abingdon between 4th & 6th August 1964, despatched on 10th August 1964 to University Motors in London and we believe it was one of their demonstrators until being sold and registered to its first owner in London on 23rd June 1965 with the number plate: EYM 296C.

It is finished in its original colour of Tartan Red with Black Leather seats piped in Red, Red carpets Black Vinyl 'pack-away' Hood, Chrome Wire Wheels, Heater, Anti-Roll Bar and Overdrive. This car was in the previous but one ownership for 21 years but off the road in storage for almost 15 years during that time. It has certainly seen a high degree of cherished upkeep over its lifetime by its former keepers - only three in the last 32 years and 9 in total - and it was fully restored by a Bob Arkle between the spring of 1986 to the summer of 1989 and there is a plate riveted to the front panel in the engine bay to this effect. There are invoices in the history file for some parts purchased for the restoration and on completion it was MOT'd on 20th January 1990 with 00002 miles on the speedometer.

It was MOT'd every year from 1989 through to 7th August 2005 with the Speedometer reading 7,874 Miles on the last MOT certificate. We know it was then put in storage and only taken out of storage in late 2021 when it was sold to the previous owner. He and gave the car to MG specialist LMG Kent Ltd and spent just over £2,300 with them on various works re-commissioning the car and it was last MOT'd in April 2022 with 'No advisories' which perhaps proves how good the car really is! It has many new parts including suspension and steering components + a new petrol pump, as all are visible from any inspection on a ramp and since we obtained the car, we have had it fully tuned and fitted a new 12v Bosch battery and a new chrome aerial.

It comes with its original Steering Wheel which is quite rare plus a classic Pye Radio/Cassette player which works, an MG Car Cover, a full black vinyl Tonneau cover, period raised digit black and white number plates, Chrome Racing wing Mirrors, Chrome Luggage Rack and a Jack & Copper Hammer.

The history file dates back to the early 1990's as mentioned and there are lots of invoices and the early MOT certificates plus its BMIHT Heritage Certificate.

This is a very nice MGB and if you can criticise the car at all, there are some blemishes and orange peel on a few panels as can been see in some photo's, but importantly no corrosion and overall it is a very presentable and nice car which really is an excellent car to drive and everything works on the car!

The car is clear on all HPi registers and upon sale it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty and it is of course ULEZ compliant and Road Tax free!

Car on display @ our showrooms in Mortlake, SW London.
