1970 MGB Roadster

Mid-'80s restoration around a new Heritage Shell; Goldseal engine; Spax suspension; from long term ownership; a lovely Roadster ready for immediate use

Purchased by the vendor's business back in 1990, this very smart example has been well cared for since, principally by Bath-based MGB specialsists DGM Bodyworks. Shortly after acquisition, it passed to the vendor's private ownership. The current V5C shows just three previous owners in total.

Multiple bills on file show regular care and maintenance, dating back to 2004. When purchased, the car had been fully restored around a new Heritage Shell - some time in the mid-1980s. The odometer shows just 13,282 miles which is believed to have been covered since the restoration, the 10 old MOTs on file indicating that just 800 miles have been covered since 2004, which explains its inclusion in the sale today. It has also been fitted with a Goldseal engine at some time in the past.

The car comes with some nice additional features such as a mohair hood, upgraded leather seats and a wood rim wheel. This is a well presented car which has seen little use since its full rebuild around a new shell and looks excellent value at the catalogue estimate.
