1965 MGB FIA Specification Competition Roadster
Registration no. MGP 756D
Chassis no. GHN3-72637
Engine no. to be advised

Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962, the MGB would turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time. Attractively styled, cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the 'B' carried on MG's traditional role of providing affordable, open-top, sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast. Its popularity remaining undiminished today, the classic MGB is one of the easiest sports cars of its era to run and maintain in the 21st Century, being served by a worldwide industry of spare parts and service providers. They are also immensely popular in modern Historic racing, being easy to drive, relatively cheap to run, and eligible for numerous race series.

This MGB Roadster was restored and built to FIA specification in 2012 by previous owner Chris Smythe and then raced by Peter Barnard on a few occasions. The car was then sold to the vendor's family and has been raced in Equipe GTS, BCV8 and MGCC Thoroughbred championships; indeed, we are advised that the MGB is eligible for any event run under the FIA's Appendix K regulations, and at the time of cataloguing fresh HTP papers have been applied for.

The car's 1,849cc engine is freshly rebuilt by A J Barnard Engineering and has been tested on Peter Knight's dynamometer, producing a highly respectable 166bhp. Likewise rebuilt and little used since, the transmission consists of an all-synchromesh four-speed SCCR gearbox and plate limited-slip differential. A new wiring loom was installed when the car was rebuilt. Without doubt a competitive car in the right hands, this highly developed MGB Roadster is offered with a V5C registration document.
