We last sold URF 399G in May 2007 and have maintained it for its lady owner since. Prior to 2007, the MG had one owner from 1994 to 2007 and was subject of a major restoration in 2000. The car had very little use between 2000 and 2007 and since selling the car nine years the MG has covered in the region of 4000 miles. The MG has been based in Whitby since 2007 and has only been driven in good, dry weather. It has hardly had the roof up, and has been enjoyed each summer.
Over nine have come to know the car very well, MOT testing and servicing each year. In the region of £5500 has been spent on good quality annual maintenance and some cosmetic improvement. Work includes rebuilding carburettors, new rear exhaust silencer, stripping and cleaning brake calipers, new bump stops, 12 volt battery conversion, lower wishbones, front brake pads, brake shoes, steering universal joint and new spring bushes. The cars most recent service in 2016 included new spark plugs distributor cap, points, rotor arm, condenser, gearbox and engine oil change.
The MG was driven back to us from Whitby performing faultlessly. The engine runs beautifully holding excellent oil pressure, the gearbox is slick and the overdrive works correctly. URF 399G brakes, steers and handles exceptionally well and is a perfectly usable classic ideal for regular use. The car is structurally very strong and we can see from restoration photos that it was treated to new front wings in 2000 and various new metal work. Sixteen years on the car is still in very good shape but paintwork is now showing signs of age with some reaction noticeable on various areas. The MG retains a very well presented set of chrome wire wheels, chrome bumpers and grill are in lovely order and the Black with Green piped leather upholstery is nicely presented, as is the soft top and tonneau cover.
URF 399G has a proven record of being ultra reliable, usable and enjoyable and has been thoroughly enjoyed by its long term previous owner. This is a very good all round MGB that can be driven with confidence.
