MGB Roadster ~ Prize Winning Car ~ SOLD (1965)
|This MGB Roadster is one of the best classic cars that we have ever offered for sale having undergone a previous substantial restoration to near concours standard.|
It was restored in the 1990's and invoices in the history file show that this was at at a cost of over £12000. Photographs of the restoration can be seen in the documentation section below.
Since then it has been maintained without regard to cost as shown by the many recent invoices in the history file and has won numerous prizes at classic car shows. In 2015 it came second in the MG section in the well attended Newby Hall show in North Yorkshire.
The current MOT runs until July 2016 and the car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class. The current mileage reading is 65226.
The large history file contains the current V5, copies of the complete DVLA ownership history, the heritage certificate, numerous previous MOT certificates dating back to 1990, the photographs showing the comprehensive restoration and dozens of invoices for parts and work completed.
The car had a new Ivor Searle engine that cost £1446 fitted in 2013 which has now covered less than 4000 miles.
The headline of the 2nd July 2014 edition of Classic Car Weekly reported that there was an acute shortage of good MGBs and their values will continue to rise as buyers realise what good value these cars are compared to other classic British sports cars.
