1972 MGB Roadster - Green, older restoration - Very good order SOLD

Sold by RMC Classics
Further pictures here: - details above

There’s nothing quite like an early 70s MGB roadster. They hold the perfect mix between 60s sportscar design and the refinements of the later cars. These cars are a fantastic investment, with prices rising all the time.

This car is no exception, and I feel you’ll struggle to find a better one in this price bracket. It’s had a great deal of work during its life, but retains its ‘original’ feel, which I will detail throughout the ad. It’s not a show car, but presents nicely indeed, and if you’re after a solid, reliable MGB to use, then this is most probably the one for you!

The previous owner acquired the car in 2006 and used it very sparingly. The car was subject to a comprehensive restoration around 2000, where every aspect of the car was rebuilt. Since then, it hasn’t covered a great deal of miles and has been well cared for by the previous owner’s local MG specialist.
Recent work includes:
·  12v battery conversion
·  Full service including distributor cap, points, condenser, rotor arm, along with a carburettor balance and tune
·  Replacement radiator fitted as the old one had a pinhole leak
·  New rear brake cylinders
·  New fuel tank and pump
·  Inertia-reel seatbelts fitted
Bodily, the car is nice and straight, with no evidence of filler. The doors shut with a nice ‘clunk’ and the gaps are even. The panel work is very solid overall, and will last for years to come without any major issues. Door and wing bottoms are very solid. As it’s getting on for 20 years since the car was painted, yes, there are a few imperfections, and minor bubbling here and there, but absolutely nothing that really detracts from the overall look of the car. The paint finish is very good (clearly professional), and has a very deep shine. As you can see in the pictures – it presents very well indeed! The chromework is good, with the exception of the front bumper which has some pitting and flaking. Again, I feel that this doesn’t detract from the appearance, I’m just being fussy!

The car appears to be very solid throughout. Sills, castle sections, floorpans, chassis legs and spring hangers are all in good order (complete sills and much more structural work was done when the car was restored), and the car is free from nasty patchwork-quilt type repairs. It’s never had any rust-related advisories on previous MOTs and I doubt there will be anything to worry about in the future. The current MOT expires in July 2018, and of course, with the newly introduced DVLA rules, the car will not require another MOT test!

The interior is pretty good too. The seats are in good order, as are the door cards etc! The hood frame is in good order, and the hood itself appears is watertight and in good condition (but not new!). A hood cover is also included in the sale.

The engine starts readily and runs well, ticking over just as it should. The engine is a Gold-Seal replacement and has excellent oil pressure, cold and hot. It doesn’t seem to use oil or water, and the compressions are all strong. You can see in the pictures that the engine bay is tidy (and, body colour), but a little grubby - it could be detailed to look very nice indeed. The exhaust note is lovely and the car pulls and drives as it should. Overdrive is fitted, and functions very well. The rear axle is nice and quiet and the gearbox has no synchromesh issues.

History wise, the car omes with a Heritage Certificate, along with bills, receipts and MOTs since around 2000. Also included is the original Passport to Service, which shows the car’s early life. The V5 document and MOT are, of course, present. The history shows that the car was built in late 1972 and registered in early 1973.

All in all, this is an absolutely cracking little car that is absolutely ready to be used and enjoyed. You won’t find many cars at this price that have been finished to this standard. No, it is not a concourse show car, but if you are looking for an MGB Roadster to use and enjoy, I think this one will suit your needs perfectly. I travel all over the country to view these cars and this one is particularly good for the money I’m asking.
