This beautifully presented MGB Roadster was manufactured on the 4th October 1972 for the RHD Home Market. The MG left the factory in Harvest Gold with Navy Trim, Black Hood and featured Rostyle wheels (later changed to chrome wires), overdrive, headrests and servo assisted brakes. The registration mark GDP 222L was issued in Reading, and the car supplied new by Morris Garages Limited in Oxford.
The MGB has a well-documented history and it was with the same family for around 30 years and has covered 20, 000 miles since a complete overhaul, re-trim, new hood, full bodyshell strip down, restoration and re-paint, and engine re-condition taking the car to a show standard level in 1989. The restoration with photo record was undertaken at 76, 000 miles meaning the mileage from new is documented at 96, 000. The cost of the restoration was over the value of the car in 1989, £9, 685 and carried out by Bucks MG Centre. The invoice documenting all the work including new panels is with the history file.

Having had excellent maintenance and upkeep since 1989, the car still looks superb throughout, and is exceptional to drive. The bodywork is first class, and the Harvest Gold paintwork has a stunning gleam to it. Chrome work is of a very high standard, the chrome wire wheels are excellent and the upholstery has a lovely honest look and feel to it having being re-trimmed over 30 years ago. Whilst the car was rebuilt in 1989, it appears a very correct, original car still retaining its original colours and registration mark. The MGB is a delight to drive, its been regularly serviced, the engine is super fit holding excellent oil pressure, the four speed gearbox and overdrive are smooth and the car is absolutely ideal for regular summer use, shows, events and touring.
