Full Description

1973 MGB Roadster

SOLD £8,624

Fully restored at 88,000 miles in 1990 with fully documented photographic record - lovely period colour and eminently usable

A very smart and presentable ‘B, and no doubt one of the last chrome bumper cars before ‘the change’ to rubber dating from 29th August 1973. Comprehensively restored in 1990 this tidy little roadster has covered just 20,000 miles since in the hands of two loving owners. Finished in desirable and oh-so-period Harvest Gold with contrasting navy-blue leatherette interior and timber rimmed steering wheel and gear knob it is undoubtedly an attractive spec. The car has worn the thirty years since restoration remarkably well and still very much looks and feels as sharp and fresh as if it had been much more recent. The car has a good history file comprising some 22 old MOTs the last being in May 2017 at 3,861 miles and is now of course MOT exempt. The car has covered only 4,000 miles since then, currently showing 8,678 miles (108,678). The file also includes a the V5C, detailed photographic record of the restoration and a swathe of invoices and bills for parts and maintenance dating back from the current time to 1990. With a full tonneau cover included and a smart hood we see little, if any reason why this smart ‘B couldn’t be enjoyed all year round, particularly given the active owner’s club scene and rear mounted luggage rack for weekend jaunts away. A cracker for sure.
