1971 MGB Roadster Heritage Shell Rebuild

This stunning MGB Roadster has been subject of a full Heritage shell rebuild and has been driven over to us in excellent order. The car has been with one of our regular customers on the East Coast and has had some serious detailing work carried out over the summer. Now retired, the most recent owner has spent a career working on cars and has gone right through this MG with a keen eye for detail. Since preparing the car to his high standards, it has performed perfectly being used on a regular basis for some summer touring on Yorkshire roads.

VUH 57J has covered in the region of 8000 miles since the full nut and bolt rebuild in the early 2000's. The new shell was accompanied by new doors, bonnet and boot and the whole shell including underside were painted in Tartan Red. The brand new shell was superbly painted and many years on still has a fabulous paint finish. All chrome was replaced, Minilight wheels fitted and a brand new hood, frame and tonneau fitted. The interior was treated to new Moss recliner seats and fully re-trimmed. The mechanicals were completely rebuilt and a brand new Ivor Searle unleaded engine fitted. A re-conditioned gearbox, overdrive and axle were fitted and the car uprated with CV8 complete front suspension and improved brakes. Further enhancements include a stainless steel four branch manifold, electronic ignition and fuel pump and Halogen headlamps.

Several years on since the rebuild this MG still looks terrific with a top class body with no rust. The panels are excellent, paintwork superb and the engine bay is top class having had hours of detailing. The boot area in carpeted and the interior very smartly presented. Wheels are excellent, the underneath first class and a luggage rack and wind deflector are also with the car.
On the road VUH 57J is fantastic with a top class engine and gearbox. Oil pressure is excellent, the gear changes perfectly and the car handles brilliantly. The brakes are impressive and very sharp and the whole driving experience is quite simply superb throughout. This MGB will not disappoint on the road and having had a summer of fettling, it really is ready to use and enjoy. The MG also comes with a wind deflector and recently fitted luggage rack.
