1979 MGB Roadster

Loads of money spent over the last four years; recent exhaust; Mini-lite style wheels; tonneau and hood cover; all up together starter Classic

Purchased by the vendor in 2017 as a part (well nearly)-finished project, he has spent the last four years improving it and bringing it to the standard we see today.

All invoices for the parts are on file, along with a summary list detailing all of the major works completed.

The structure of the car was sorted professionally, including repairs to the sill and floorpan area and the doors were replaced with good used examples.

The car arrived with a new full and half tonneau cover. The electrics were overhauled with a new ignition switch, plug leads, alternator, flasher unit and rocker switches, dizzy and rotor arm kit and cooling fan motor.

The brakes were fully overhauled with new copper pipes, front pads and rear shoes. The clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder were also replaced.

The suspension also came in for treatment, with new front springs and anti rollbar links, new rear spring U bolts and axle oil seals. The fuel pump was replaced and the carburettors overhauled with new floats/needles etc. All in all, a myraid of small parts were replaced and much care and attention given.

The end result is a well-sorted Roadster, the vendor looking for a new project to spend his time sorting out. There is nothing in the way of previous history, other than the six previous keepers recorded on the V5c - the car standing on its merits as an eminently usable example of the breed, offered at a most realistic guide price. Well worth a closer look.
