MGB ROADSTER, 1972 - W/OVERDRIVE – IRIS BLUE,  FULLY RESTORED.

 

1972 MGB ROADSTER, IT HAS BOTH A NEW RETRO MGC BONNET AND ORIGINAL MGB BONNET BOTH PAINTED IN CORRECT COLOUR SO YOU CAN DECIDE WHICH YOU PREFER .


THE CAR HAD A FULL BODY OFF NUT AND BOLT RESTORATION IN AROUND 2015. SINCE THEN THE MOT HISTORY SHOWS IT HAS JUST COVERED 250 MILES. RECENT MOT HAS BEEN APPLIED AS CAR HAS SPENT ALOT OF TIME STORED. ALSO FULLY SERVICED AND BRAKES OVERHAULED. THE UNDERNEATH IS IN FABULOUS ORDER AND IS STILL BODY COLOURED, I PRESUME THE CAR WAS PUT ON A ROTTISERIE TO DO THIS AND ALL INNER WINGS ETC BEFORE BEING RE-ASSEMBLED.


INTERIOR HAS BEEN RE-TRIMMED WITH NEW CARPETS, AND SEATS AND DOOR CARDS HAVE BEEN DONE TOO. THERE IS A GOOD QUALITY MOTO-LITA STEERING WHEEL. STAINLESS MG SILL STEP PLATES HAVE BEEN ADDED. WE HAVE ALSO ADDED A BRAND NEW FULL TONNEAU COVER WITH HALF ZIP WHICH REALLY FINISHES IT OFF NICELY. THE ORIGINAL WIRE WHEELS HAVE BEEN RECENTLY REPAINTED AND ARE SHOD WITH QUALITY RADIALS WHICH HAVEN’T DONE MANY MILES AT ALL. THE TWO EAR CHROME CENTRES ARE ALL GOOD AND THERE IS THE CORRECT TOOL AND MALETT FOR THESE KNOCK ONS IN THE BOOT. THE BOOT SPACE IS VERY CLEAN INDEED. THERE IS NO SIGN OF ANY WELDING HERE AND THERE IS NO RUST AT ALL. A CARPET UPGRADE IS VERY EASILY ACQUIRED SHOULD THE NEW OWNER WISH TO DO. FOLLOWING A RECENT SERVICE THE ENGINE SOUNDS STRONG AND THERE ARE NO OBVIOUS FAULTS OR LEAKS. THERE IS THE ADDITION OF A FULL STAINLESS EXHAUST. THE OVERDRIVE IS WORKING AS IT SHOULD. THE BRAKES ARE SERVO ASSISTED AND PULL UP FINE. THE HOOD IS A MOHAIR TYPE AND IS VERY GOOD SAVE A COUPLE OF TINY RUBS WHERE IT HAS BEEN FOLDED AWAY IN STORAGE. CHROME PERIOD LUCAS SPOTLIGHTS ARE MOUNTED TO THE FRONT.


IRIS BLUE IS ALWAYS A FAVOURITE OF OURS, BEING THE 1ST EVER PRODUCTION MGB ROADSTER WAS THIS COLOUR. ITS ALWAYS A POPULAR CHOICE. MORE THAN THAT, THIS HAS OBVIOUSLY HAD ALOT OF TIME AND MONEY SPENT AND NOW JUST NEEDS TO BE ENJOYED. PART EX WELCOME FOR SIMILAR STANDARD CLASSICS. TRAILERED TRANSPORT OFFERED AT COST.
