Description

The MGB hardly needs any introduced in 1962 the 'B' refined the strides made by the outgoing MGA. It utilised a monocoque structure instead of a ‘body on frame' construction, the lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to the vehicles overall strength. Wind up windows and a weatherproof soft top came as standard and the comfortable cockpit offered decent legroom, along with a good driving position. Sporting the robust and easily tuneable BMC B series engine and a four-speed gear box, the MGB soon became a favorite amongst the sporting fraternity.

This Limited Edition end of the line MG B Roadster is presented in superb original condition, having travelled a mere 5700 miles from new, with its one registered owner.

A true collectors piece this car is wonderfully original with Ziebart rustproofing by supplying dealer from new (certificate of guarantee included), original passport to service stamped by dealer in service book 9 times, old MOT certificates, original Lucas audio cassette with operating instructions.

It comes complete with all original equipment in the boot, full and half tonneau covers, bags and tonneau bars. The only deviations from its factory specifications that we can tell are only service items and a new stainless exhaust system fitted 2 years ago when the car was recommissioned after its long-term dry storage.

Fitted with overdrive and the optional alloy wheels offered only on the LE models, this is one of 420 Roadsters produced in the final days at the iconic Abingdon factory. Offered without reserve this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a piece of British motoring history.
