1970 MGB Roadster, very good condition, bought as a retirement toy in 2019 and having spent a lot of money bringing it up to scratch I find I am struggling to get in and out of it!
This has been very well looked after and garaged for the period of my ownership. Historically it has had a replacement Gold Seal British Leyland Engine at about 50,000 miles so current engine has done just over 40,000 miles. The carpets are reasonably new and the black leather seats are in very good condition. All instruments are working and original. The gearbox is smooth and the overdrive works a treat. Structurally the car is A1. The paintwork is very good with one or two minor chips/bubbles.
Under my ownership the car has been extensively restored/refurbished at AR Griffiths in Derby (MG Restorer).
Recent work includes a new heater matrix and control cables plus switch, a newly crackled dashboard which looks fantastic, original instruments, recently reconditioned SU Carbs with new heat shield, new top of the range hood, new tonneau cover, new fuel pump and pipework, new exhaust mounts, new brake cylinders, new engine kingpins, new wheel bearings, new water pump, new rocker box cover, new alternator, new gearstick bushing, new washer pump/switch, new electronic ignition system, ignition immobiliser, MGOC inertia seat belts, plus usual service items.
Although MOT exempt, the last MOT was 1st May 2019, before the refurbishment work, and has only done 400 miles since due to lockdowns/arthritis.
This is a fantastic car, ready to go, I would love to be able to keep it but I can't drive it, only look at it longingly!
