1973 MGB Roadster

Restored four owner B in attractive colour scheme with nice roof and interior - ready for some summer fun

Dating from March 1973 this tidy MGB Roadster has evidently been to the subject of considerable expense and restoration, although unfortunately undocumented, the car presents well, starting and running well as we moved it around for these shots and video.

The car is finished in pale yellow, which suits the car with contrasting black vinyl hood which also looks new and the car sits on a set of 14” centre knock wire wheels which really set the car off. 

Inside, we find black vinyl seating which also looks fresh along with a standard dash with dash mounted over-drive switch and more modern radio unit.  The car shows 64,181 miles which may, or may not be correct – we have insufficient history to back this up.

The history file includes the V5C which shows the car has been with the current owner since October 2016 along with part of an old style V5 which shows the transfer from the last owner to the current, suggesting the last owner had the car from February 1976 to August 2016. We also find a service bill dated June 1976 (no mileage stated) , bill for a new thermostat in October 2016 and MOT exemption form dated May 2018 although the car does come with a fresh MOT valid until July 2023 recording no advisories.

Buyers please note, the Experian report shows a colour change from Gold to Yellow in 2018, which is likely to have been when the car was restored and re-painted.
