This is a perfect starter classic, ready to use and easy to live with. It is a 1970 MGB Roadster finished in Red with Black Leather Interior. The car has been comprehensively restored a few years ago and still presents in a lovely condition and drives like new.

Introduced in 1962, the MGB would turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time. Attractively styled, cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the 'B' carried on MG's traditional role of providing affordable, sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast. It was mechanically similar to the preceding MGA, though with heavier, unitary construction bodyshell. To compensate for the newcomer's increased weight the four-cylinder B-Series engine was stretched from 1,622 to 1,798cc, while the MGB's aerodynamically efficient lines made the most of the maximum available 95bhp to achieve a top speed which just bested the magic 'ton'. A 'right first time' design that changed little over the years apart from the adoption of a more robust five-main-bearing engine in 1965 (fitted from the start of GT production that autumn) a minor facelift for 1970 and the adoption of plastic bumpers (to comply with US legislation) for 1975, the 'B' enjoyed an 18-year production life and sales totalling in excess of 500,000 cars.

The previous owner but one purchased it over 20 years ago and embarked on a no expense spared restoration costing over £17,000 in total. The car was completely bare metal resprayed and still presents very nicely today. the mechanicals were all attneded to also and the car was as good as new. The car has covered very little miles since the restoration and we infact supplied this car to its previous owner nearly 5 years ago and have kept in touch with it ever since. We now offer the car again and after a nice hour long test drive can state the car drives perfectly. It comes with an MOT and is freshly serviced and ready for its new home this summer.

A perfect little MGB, in the best colour combination, with a lovely interior and in perfect order, an awful lot of car for the money.
