Full Description

1980 MGB Roadster

In depth recent restoration; fortune spent; full repaint; reluctant sale

This sharp and well presented MGB Roadster was first registered in March 1979 and was acquired by the present owner in September 2020 as a project to restore for family use.

An in-depth restoration followed, the bulk of the work taking place from January to May 2021. This included a full body repaint in flame red, Raptor underbody protection in red, a chrome bumper conversion, new clutch, electronic Ignition, new hood, all new suspension bushes, new discs and pads, electric fan, new carpets, new chrome and a full service in May 2021. The parts alone cost a whopping £7,872.20 without the cost of labour or repaint! We are also advised that in 2014, the engine was converted to run on unleaded petrol.

As is often the case, the vendor enjoyed the project more than the family enjoyed the car and so it has seen very little use since the restoration.

On offer at a very reasonable estimate, especially given the costs of the parts alone, it looks like a great opportunity to acquire some summer fun with the hard work already done.
