About this MG B

This beautiful MGB Roadster was first registered on 27th March 1978 and is finished in a lovely pale Blue/Grey with Black Leather trim, Back carpets, Roll-bar, Black Mohair Roof, Electric Windows, Weber Carburettor conversion, a Gold Seal 1798cc Engine and 4 Speed Transmission with Overdrive on 3rd & 4th gears, Cobra Alarm/Immobiliser, Pioneer Stereo with 6 CD Auto-changer and Mini-Lite style Alloy Wheels with new Pirelli P6000 Tyres.

This car has a superb history file dating back to 1987 when it was purchased by the current owner of 35 years! It was completely restored in 1987/88 with many new body panels, inner and outer sills and Castle rails with invoices in the history file for everything and it was at this time repainted in its current colour. The car was also given a new Gold Seal Engine from MG International in December 1987 and the car has covered 34,000 miles on this engine. From 1987 to 1995 the car was looked after by a garage in Southport and the owner then moved to London where the car was then serviced by Hart Racing Services in Park Royal, London NW10 who carried out lots of works for him including fitting a new Mohair Roof and soft top frame, Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust System, Weber Carburettor conversion, new Clutch hydraulics, a Cobra Alarm, new Wood Door Cappings, a new Pioneer Stereo with Bazooka Speakers, Boot trim kit, Battery Cut-Off switch, new Rear Brakes, new Carpet set, a Daytona leather Steering Wheel and Boss, 5 new Mini-Lite style Alloy Wheels, new Shock Absorbers and Springs and muc much more including routine servicing.

In 2010 the car was put into dry storage until August 2021 when it was given to sports car specialist Enginuity in London for re-commissioning, servicing and a new MOT costing with all works £2,396 and their detailed invoice is in the history file along with all invoices since he bought it, MOT certificates, Tax Discs and its HPi check and certificate.

It is with great reluctance that the owner has given us the car to sell for him after 35 years, he would now like someone else to enjoy this stunning car which is genuinely in exceptional and completely rust-free condition as you can see from the photographs and it drives beautifully. The car is clear on all HPi registers and upon sale it will come with a new MOT and pre-sales service + our own 3 Month Mechanical Warranty and it is ULEZ and Tax free!

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