1972 MGB Roadster - Teal Blue
£££ SOLD £££
This example is MOT’d until August 2015 and is free to tax.
Having had only 3 former keepers, the car hasn’t been messed around with too much, like a great deal of these cars are. Recent works include a full stainless exhaust, decoke of the cylinder head (unleaded), and a full refurb of the wheels (blasted and coated). It has also had a respray at some point in the past 5 years.
There are a good amount of bills and receipts with the car, showing that a great deal of money has been spent in the upkeep.
Bodily, the car is very solid indeed – as you can see from the pictures. The close up pics are just to show you the panels in more detail – not highlighting any particular grot spots! The door bottoms are all in good shape, as is the bottom of the boot lid. I would say that the car has had a new pair of wings over the past few years but I don’t have a bill for this. The car has been painted at some point in the past five years – it’s not a quick blowover and there are no areas of bubbling showing through, showing that I have spotted. The paint has a good shine, but don’t come expecting a concourse car!
The car runs and drives well – the brakes function well and the car stops in a straight line. The non-overdrive gearbox is nice and there are no nasty graunches or whines. The car has been used very sparingly, having only covered 3000 miles over the past 5 years or so. The steering is nice and tight, and the car rides well. The interior is in good order, too, with no obvious rips and tears. The hood is nice, and the dashboard has been repainted well.
This is a bargain price for a fantastic car which attracts a great deal of attention wherever it goes. Obviously it’s not a concourse car but it’s very nice, and won’t be requiring any significant works for a good while. It’s now a very usable, enjoyable car capable of use on A roads in traffic, etc. The car starts on the button every time.
