MGB Roadster 1969 Sold - £POA

Introduced in 1962, the MGB Roadster enjoyed an eighteen-year production run. With nicely balanced handling and a good turn of speed, it merited the old MG marketing slogan 'Safety Fast'. Based around a monocoque chassis featuring independent coil-sprung front suspension and a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle, its 1798cc 'B' series four-cylinder engine was allied to a four-speed manual transmission. Capable of over 100mph, the provision of front disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering greatly aided control.

Fitted with weber 45 DCOE carburettor and electric fan
Offered with a large collection of invoices from the MG B hive
New Minilite style alloy wheels including a full set of new tyres.
Overdrive model

A Mk II (’GHN4’ chassis numbers from 1967 onwards) MG B, it had a 5 main bearing engine with alternator, negative earth and, at last, received a new gearbox with synchromesh on all four forward speeds. Built in the winter of 1968-1969 this car was first registered in the UK on 11th March 1969. Current ownership has seen an extensive restoration of the Roadster over a two-year period. The extensive work carried out has involved an engine overhaul, which also had a full service, and the following:
Externally the car benefitted from new panels, a repaint in Flame Red, new wheels, and tyres, re-chromed bumpers and a new soft-top. The interior refresh involved new Black seats, rewiring and a new dashboard. Mechanical work included a brake and suspension overhaul, an electric fan, and a Weber 45” DCOE carburettor. ‘MNB’ is offered with a collection of invoices from the MG B hive and the current V5C.
This very smart looking example is ready to be used and enjoyed.
