1971 MGB Roadster

This stunning MGB Roadster was first registered on the 13th September 1971 and comes with a comprehensive history to include MOT certificates dating back to 1981 when just ten years old. The MGB has been with its last owner for 10 years, purchased in 2007 after a Heritage Shell rebuild and has since covered less than 3000 miles.

LFB 747K presents superbly with a top class body colour underside. From viewing the car from underneath, it's clear the car has the potential to be taken to the very highest of standards for show level, but for anybody looking for a structurally perfect MGB ready to use and enjoy, this is an ideal choice.  The MG has stunning Tartan Red paintwork, very smart chrome work, excellent wire wheels, a lovely ten year old hood and an absolutely superb engine bay. The bulkhead and inner wings are first class and the engine and ancillaries present very well. The boot area is carpeted and superbly presented and the interior nicely finished with Club Sport leather seats, excellent carpets, crackle dash and Moto-Lita steering wheel.

On the road this MG performs exceptionally well with a strong, rebuilt engine holding excellent oil pressure. This MG has the desirable option of overdrive and the four speed gearbox changes smoothly up and down the gearbox. LFB 747K holds the road superbly, steering feels tight, precise, adjustable Spax Shockers are fitted to the rear and we also note the car has drilled front brake discs. Having covered just 3000 miles since a full rebuild, this is still a relatively fresh restoration although over ten years since the work completed. The recent owners have not been able to use the car over the past year so we will be carrying out a programme of light work and servicing within the price at our Malton Coachworks service garage.
