We are delighted to offer this multi show winning MGB onto the market. This is such a special car and it's difficult where to start with telling the story. This isn't a typical nicely restored MGB, it is much more special and has been subject of major detailing work enabling the car to be showcased at various Northern MG events over recent years. The level of detail that has gone into this car can only be achieved by an enthusiast who's passion has been classic cars, it really has been precious to its most recent owners and is a true credit to their hard work. 2016 saw the MG awarded 167 out of 175 points at the Harrogate MG Club Concours/Premier event, 2015 the MG was awarded 2nd place in the MG Car Club Premier Concours, 1st in Class was achieved at the MGOC Northern National in 2013 and over the years many awards have been achieved. We have probably never sold an MGB that has won so many awards. The MG has participated in many MGCC runs, many plaques accompany the car and the car is very well known on the club show circuit.
This MGB is a genuine home market UK car and the Heritage Certificate confirms it was supplied new by University Motors Limited, London, despatched on the 4th September 1967. The car was supplied new with wire wheels, overdrive and heater. Adding to a comprehensive file of history is a photographic record that documents a full nut and bolt restoration between 1995 - 1997. The body was taken to bare metal, the engine rebuilt and balanced, all new chrome and trim fitted and a stainless steel exhaust system and oil cooler fitted. From 1997 to changing hands to the most recent owners in 2011, the MGB covered around 10,000 miles. From 2011 the MG was then taken to the next level in terms of detail and quality, having thousands of pounds and hundreds of hours spent on taking the car to show level. This included replacing the interior, ensuring the engine bay was close to concours, ensuring the underside was as clean as the paintwork, inside wheel arches being kept immaculate, and whenever something required replacing, it was replaced. As a result of many winter months spent in the garage being detailed, the MGB could be presented on the show scene and regularly picked up prizes.
This car must be seen to be appreciated properly, the photos do not do the car justice. Paintwork is beautiful, the bodyshell outstanding with absolutely no rust, the hood and interior are stunning and chrome work and the engine bay gleam. The boot area is immaculate, a boot carpet set is also with the car and can be fitted if required. Needless to say, XRO 433F is a true delight to drive and has now covered 14000 miles since rebuild but 4000 of those miles since major post restoration work was carried out. The engine is perfect and holds excellent oil pressure, the four speed overdrive box is a delight to use and the MG feels tight with superb handling and brakes. The car has been maintained with no expense spared and this shows in the detail. This MGB really has everything in terms of quality, provenance, reliability and wonderful presentation. Any better than this, and the car is too good to drive, it really has the perfect combination for showing, road rallies and having weekend fun. Finding a better example that has been loved and cherished like this car could prove incredibly difficult.
