1966 MGB Roadster
Oselli tuned engine; unleaded head; lots of history; wire wheels; recent new tyres and soft top; Heritage Certificate; ready to enjoy
As the Heritage Certificate shows, this MGB Roadster was built in March 1966 and was originally Old English White with a black interior and came with options including wire wheels and a heater. Sold to its first owner via Stewart & Ardern Ltd of Acton, London, it still bears its original registration number and is a ‘matching numbers’ car.
Clearly a much-cherished machine, it comes with a large history file back to 1990 to document work carried out over the years, including an AA Inspection Report from 1994 which summarised it as being ‘in well above average condition for a vehicle of this age’.
Between 1994 and 2001 it belonged to an Oxford University professor who had it maintained by Oselli with many invoices to show work carried out by them. This included an engine rebuild in 1999 at 15,287 miles with unleaded conversion and Oselli Performance Pack tuning and an oil cooler. Since the engine rebuild it has covered some 14,700 miles, the odometer currently showing 29,950 miles.
In 2004 the bodywork was restored with a couple of CDs on file to document the process and in 2006 it got a new set of wire wheels. In 2008 it was put into storage where it remained for the next 10 years before being recommissioned including a new set of tyres, a new vinyl soft top and a pair of reconditioned SU carburettors.
Driven some 30 miles to the sale, it has an MOT until September 2021 with no advisories recorded and now needs an enthusiastic new owner to give it the more regular use it deserves.
