"The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two-seater; a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while being 3 inches (75 mm) shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. From 1972 there were two different radial sizes factory-fitted to new cars, depending on whether the car was a roadster or a GT. Later on during the rubber bumper production period, alloy wheels were introduced on several different limited edition models - with the final 1,000 LE models being the last cars to leave the factory with alloy wheels
This lovely example of the MG B Roadster is presented in Gunmetal Grey with a black leather interior and green piping. It comes with a black canvas soft top hood, a hard top and is fitted with the more sporty Mini Lite wheels. The car was restored in 2002 and as it was part of a deceased estate, there are no restoration invoices unfortunately but there is just one old MoT certificate with the mileage showing 75,871 miles, which we believe to be genuine. A new MoT test certificate will be supplied before it is due to go to Auction. The car is generally in a good condition and was garaged while in the previous owner’s care.
