1973 MGB Roadster

Nicely prepared car restored in 2011; overdrive; wire wheels; Ivor Searle engine

Acquired by the vendor earlier in the year, the car proved an excellent buy until a knee and hip operation put paid to enjoying low-slung open-top motoring....

The condition of the car speaks for itself, with excellent paintwork, panel fit, interior and overall presentation. It sits on wire wheels and has an overdrive, ticking all of the MGB boxes.

In 2011 it was involved in a prang, with damage to the front wing and door. Given its condition at the time, it was an uneconomical repair and recorded as a Category C on the register, but the car was salvaged and treated to a proper restoration - hence the condition we see it in today. Its last MOT expired in 2019 with no advisories.

It looks to have had an Ivor Searle exchange engine in 2018 and notes on file talk of an unleaded head conversion and stainless exhaust. It also has front plastic inner wing protectors which are a great idea on these cars. It has been performing just as a nicely prepared MGB should since arrival.

This is a well-restored example which is ready for immediate use.
