This fantastic MGB V8 Roadster has been with its last owner for the past 20 years and is truly outstanding to drive. HOA 484N is tremendous on the road with ferocious, exhilarating performance, exceptional handling and offers a very exciting driving experience. During the 20 years of ownership the MG V8 has covered 55,000 miles, proving to be an ideal long-distance touring, usable classic. The MG has toured all over the UK and has been extensively used and enjoyed with its long-term owner.
Mechanically HOA 484N is very strong with a super fit high performance V8 engine with Holley Carb and Offenhauser intake manifold. The four-speed gearbox with overdrive is in excellent order and the MG has recently been treated to new suspension springs and has excellent brakes and a stainless-steel exhaust system. This is a car that must be driven to be appreciated, it really is exceptional and clearly been rebuilt to an excellent standard in terms of mechanicals.
Body wise the MG is also impressive having had a comprehensive restoration in 2008 that included new inner and outer sills, wing panels and jacking points. The MG V8 has also been fitted with an MGC bonnet and ten years on from restoration the bodyshell is excellent with superb panel gaps, shut lines and straight panels. The paintwork is of a lovely standard and retains a deep, bright and fresh finish. Chrome work is of a very good standard, wire wheels have been replaced in recent years and so has the hood. The interior is very clean with Black leather seats with Red piping, smart carpets with MG over mats and door cards and dashboard are all in lovely order. The engine bay presents well, as does the boot area and whilst this MG V8 will look great on the show circuit, its real place is on the road enjoying its impressive acceleration and testing out its firm handling.
