MGB Roadster for sale having undergone a full ground up nut and bolt restoration. Finished in a metallic red,

This car was featured on the front cover of MG enthusiasts magazine August 1995 with a full write up and pictures inside. The car was originally a barn find and completely rebuilt from the ground up with no expense spared. Using a reconditioned rover SDI V8 engine reconditioned with new uprated pistons and cams and a reconditioned 5 speed gearbox and dif.

The brakes have been changed to discs all round and the shell strengthened with extra box sections.
Unusually this car has twin exhaust pipes spaced either side of the petrol tank that omits a beautiful sound. ( the petrol tank had to be moved centrally to achieve this. )

The car was sold to a collector for over 10 years and driven very occasionally. I acquired it about a year ago have been driving it since. It is believed it has covered approx. 13, 000 miles since restored and drives beautifully.

The restoration was completed around 1995 and so whilst the car is not in mint condition it is still very good all round and well above average for its age as you would expect. Absolutely no rust spots etc with an excellent interior. Finished in a lovely metallic almost burgundy pinkish metallic finish. ( the pictures show it to be more cherry red but its actually more burgundy)
