Quite possibly the best known small British sportscar of all time, the MGB was first introduced in 1964 – in Roadster form – and production continued until 1980, by which time over half a million (of all variants) had been produced. The car still has a large following to this day and a good support network through specialist suppliers and an owners club. Limited changes were made to the car prior to the substantial revision to its appearance from the 1974 model year, when the original chrome bumpers were replaced with new, steel-reinforced black rubber bumpers front and rear, to meet new US impact regulations. Throughout the model’s life, the 1800cc engine was rated at 95 bhp peak power at 5,400 rpm, with a 6,000 rpm redline. In 1968 the gearbox was uprated to offer full synchromesh on all 4 gears. This gave performance figures of a top speed around 105 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of around 12 seconds. This ‘chrome bumper’ model dates from 1972, having been first registered new in the UK in May of that year. We know nothing further of the car’s subsequent history until it was purchased by a Jersey resident and re-registered in the island in May 2019.
An attractive MGB Roadster with some extras fitted and in a good, solid condition, driving well and ready to go. This example would make a perfectly viable ‘daily-driver’. The car is currently Jersey registered and we can assist with shipping and importing processes if required. We can ship worldwide.
The car has clearly been well-cared for during its life with evidence under the vehicle of some body repair work having been carried out. The Teal Blue paintwork is not perfect, but quite presentable, with the wire wheels and all brightwork in a good condition. The foldaway hood is fully functioning.
The black interior is in very good condition with a wood veneer dash cover fitted, uprated (and very comfortable) leather seats and an aftermarket steering wheel.
Mechanically sound – with some work undertaken to ensure the car passed the rigorous local re-registration inspection. The car runs and drives very well. A stainless steel exhaust system has been fitted.
