This stunning Mineral Blue MGB GT has been owned by the same family for the past 35 years. The MG has been passed from father to daughter and in 2010 was subject of a major restoration carried out by a West Yorkshire MG specialist. Since restoration the MG has covered 1200 miles and was driven to us from Calverley, near Leeds performing faultlessly during the 60 mile journey here.
During 2010 a total of £24,000 was spent on HJA 996E. The bodywork required substantial repairs and was treated to various new panels and sections. A full photographic record of the body repairs accompanies the car detailing the areas that required replacement panels. All corroded areas were cut out and replaced with new metal and brand new floors fitted. The body was then prepared for paint with the engine bay stripped and engine removed; the car was then painted in its original colour of Mineral Blue. The MGB was mechanically re-commissioned and a re-conditioned engine with unleaded head fitted to the car. A new clutch was supplied and the gearbox checked before re-fitting. A new webasto sunroof was fitted to the car and the headlining and carpets replaced. The MG had some interior work, the seats were not re-covered and this is something we are happy to discuss with potential buyers. The wiring loom was replaced and various ancillaries replaced as necessary.
Since rebuild, the MG has performed faultlessly and proven perfectly reliable as you would expect after £24000 worth of expenditure The MG has driven comfortably to Cumbria and also used on short local journeys. The car is structurally excellent and has a beautifully presented engine bay. The engine is excellent holding perfect oil pressure and the gearbox smooth and a delight to use. The MG didn't have the option of overdrive but is fantastic cruising on A and B roads.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a fully rebuilt MGB that has had substantial expenditure carried out by a well-known marque specialist. The car is in a very attractive original colour and is very well presented. HJA 996E is exceptional to drive and looks lovely with renewed chrome and painted wire wheels.
"As you can see the kids absolutely love it. Best wishes, Luke."
