The very British sports car that is more than fifty years young and continues to please. High top speeds and brisk acceleration is not really its thing but there is a certain charm in the way the comfortable cockpit, happy burbling exhaust and delightful driving manners, all help towards a genuine feel good factor not always found in the more terrifying offerings available.

With 1950cc fast road specifications, a five speed gearbox and five almost new JBW alloy road wheels and tyres, this particular Roadster will be seen as a more exciting example, which hopefully remains within the spirit of MGB motoring.

The MG comes with detailed specifications of the engine and gearbox , photographs of the body restoration and excellent interior trim work with leather seats. This is clearly a very special B which will attract much interest at MG events and shows plus of course, will give the new owner something of which to be to be very proud. In addition, the B is supplied with the original Rostyle road wheels and a comprehensive history file containing specifications, data, invoices, MOT test certificates, the aforementioned photographs, correspondence and the V5C registration certificate.
