1979 MGB Roadster

Used sparingly since 2011; a few jobs to do; ideal starter classic; runs and drives

First registered in August 1979, this rubber bumper roadster is understood to have been fully restored about 13 years ago and has been used sparingly since.

Now, still showing under the 100,000 mile figure, she runs and drives and despite having had the engine tuned and some repairs made to the overdrive in 2016, we are advised that the o/d still may need some attention.

Its MOT history online goes steadily back to 2011 and it comes with a current ticket which expires in August 2021. Of course, it doesn’t need one these days but its nice to have that reassurance.

Cosmetically, she could do with a little tender loving care here and there, but the metallic green paintwork is essentially good and the hood appears to be in good order too. The interior is very respectable complete with wood rim Nardi-style steering wheel and there is even a little boot rack to pop on the back for those trips down to the beach! Regular use needed by new keeper.
