The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two-seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed.
This fantastic example, presented in Midnight Blue has only had 2 owners from new. Upon purchase from the car’s original owner in 2002, the vendor commissioned a complete re-build by renowned MG specialists, California Classics ltd in Hull, East Yorkshire and spent over £21,800 on the restoration. The documentation stating this is in the car’s history file. The restoration started in 2003 and was completed by 2005. Since its restoration, the car has covered a mere 3,000 miles. This car has been re-built to a far higher specification than any other MGB Roadster currently available, and includes an uprated 2,100cc engine, with 5 speed gearbox, a limited slip differential with a 3:91 ratio, SPAX adjustable shocks at the rear, Bilstein telescopic shocks at the front, 1.75 inch SU carburettors with K&N air filters, electronic ignition, immobiliser, heated seats, walnut dash, mohair hood, 4 speakers, 6 CD changer, electric windows, and Moto Lita steering wheel to name a few. Details of the full specification are included in the cars history file with its UK V5. The car will be supplied with a fresh MOT.
