1964 MGB 'Pull Handle' Roadster

This smartly presented MGB Roadster is one of the rare and desirable early pull handle models. 607 LAA is an original UK car that has been with its last owner in West Yorkshire for over fifteen years. The MG was initially used for long distance touring and was regularly driven up to Scotland for long weekend breaks and holidays. In the past two years the MG has had little use and as a result the car was offered to us and quickly collected from the Huddersfield area. Since then the car has had a comprehensive programme of mechanical work and is running and driving beautifully.

Recent work in our Malton Coachworks workshop includes new front brake discs and pads, new handbrake pads and pivot arms, new steering rack, new carburettor floats, new thermostat, fuel pump, door barrels, new boot lock, new headlight units, re-conditioned dynamo and the gearbox has been removed and fully rebuilt. The MGB has also been fitted with a brand new hood and a new set of chrome wire wheels. In the region of £4500 has been spent preparing the MG ensuring it proves reliable and an enjoyment for its next owner.

The MG has come to us with a lovely clean bodyshell with straight panels, superb fitting doors and very good panel alignment. The body was restored over fifteen years ago and is in excellent order with a clean underside. The MG has recently been treated to a full re-paint and is presented exceptionally well with a gleaming, high class paint finish. Chrome work is very smart, wire wheels are in very good order and the MG comes with a Bermuda hard top. The interior is smart, useable and boasts Black leather seats, a smart set of carpets and door cards.

On the road 607 LAA performs very well with a good, strong healthy engine holding good oil pressure. The MG starts and runs superbly and drives very well with impressive performance. The four speed manual gearbox changes up and down with no crunches and is in very good condition, the overdrive comes in and out smoothly. The B handles well and is a pleasure to drive and has given many years of reliable, good service to its previous owner. Once a sale is agreed, the MG will be fully serviced, function checked and supplied with a full 12 months MOT.
