I will be sad to see my 1977 MGB Roadster V8 go, but as I have a back problem she has to go also as I barely have time to drive the car due to work commitments. She has had six owners since new, I purchased her in 2015, we have a massive history file for the car which was only covered just over a thousand miles with its previous owner who kept the car garaged driving around 100 miles per year during his eleven years of ownership, the car being garaged carefully the rest of the time. I have covered around 2,000 miles per year since owning the car. This car is so much fun to drive with a 5-speed manual gear box and a twin exhausts from the fruity V8 engine she makes a superb sound, which turns heads then gains admiring glances as you pass by.
Originally a rubber bumper car, she has been professionally converted to a chrome bumper V8 with no expense spared ever since completion, only driven in sunny weather, spending all of its time otherwise garaged, and looked after and cared for by enthusiastic MG Owners Club member owners. Any faults as they became apparent during my ownership have been professionally dealt with either mechanically or bodywork wise as required throughout, as a result she always turns heads and would make a superb show car if that is what you are looking for.
This car has been subject to a massive and thorough rebuild with many records to prove the quality of this work, please telephone for full details and to exchange email addresses.
The engine is a Rover 3528cc from a SD1 with tubular exhaust manifolds, double barrel Holley carb all mated to a Rover SD1 five speed gearbox with body and suspension stiffening, means she corners really well. A Kenlow electric fan fitted with independent control, also the bonnet has been louvred to help keep her cool. An immobiliser has been fitted, should it be required.
The car's seats are MGOC leather clad replacements with club supplied new luxury carpets and MGOC sound insulation throughout the cockpit and the boot.
MGOC Chromed window winders are fitted, the original plastic ones just do not last.
There are steel tubular exhaust manifolds from the sweet running Rover 3528cc V8 engine. These connect to a twin exhaust system which gives a delightful burble.
An MGOC upgraded heater matrix and fan complete with all new seals etc have been fitted during my ownership along with paint restoration above and below the car too, new tyres and the wheels fully refurbished.
The car is very reliable with repaired brakes, a new laminated windscreen and any rubber or consumable or worn out parts replaced as required, there is also an immobiliser fitted.
As can be seen from the photographs, the attractive red paintwork along with a black interior works well and is perhaps the most popular combination for a roadster.
This is an exceptional car having had an enormous investment of time and money bestowed upon it as required.
The car is based in Inverness in the Highlands and is open to any inspection.
Upon sale payment either by cash, cleared cheque or bank transfer. For the costs of any fuel and return train fares I can deliver anywhere within the UK or make arrangements for the car to be professionally trailer-ed to your address at your expense.
