1970 MGB ROADSTER. OVERDRIVE. RECENT PAINT AND RESTORE. ONLY 2 OWNERS. VERY NICE CAR. £12495.



We sell a lot of MGBs and just occasionally, one comes along that really stands out from the crowd. Which is where this little beauty comes in – just look at it! What a shame that cars can’t talk because, according to the V5C, this gorgeous Roadster had just one owner from new in June 1970 until the 2nd owner acquired it in 2019. At this point the car had been in dry storage for at least two decades or more and although it was rock solid and appeared totally original, the paint had faded and it was in need of total recommissioning following all those years sat idle. There are invoices on file from Moss for over £1,200 in parts alone which excludes the cost of many other parts for which there are no bills such as king pins, suspension rebuild, brake calipers, carpets, door cards, chromework, exhaust system, batteries, tyres etc – not to mention all the labour that has gone into fitting those parts and making it look this good. Basically the whole car has been gone through and parts replaced as required. The finishing touch was a full repaint in the original and oh-so-Seventies beige which looks mighty impressive and sets the car off to a tee. We are told that the car needed no welding whatsoever and, as you can see in the photos, the panel gaps are excellent. It comes with both hood and full tonneau's. It is both MOT and road tax exempt but still sailed through its MOT in April with no advisories recorded at 44611 miles. It now shows 45727 on the clock (not warranted). This highly original, freshly rejuvenated, effectively one-owner MG is a car that anyone would be proud to be seen in.
