(HIG 6227) 'HIGGY' is a 1980 Chrome conversion MGB Roadster in Snap dragon yellow NOT Inca Yellow which is more like Ferrari Yellow. He has been totally undersealed and Waxoiled 2 years ago. and has been dry stored since then and only covered 200 miles in the last 12 months. There are a few small cosmetic marks. remember you are buying a classic car NOT a new one. Higgy runs on unleaded fuel and has fully operational overdrive which really helps on motorways and dual carriageways. There have been thousands spent on him.

Full documentation of all the work carried out ie restoration pics etc is in a box file tracing Higgys history. Higgy has not been taxed this year so is still on a SORN at the moment. In November 2011 Higgy was independently valued for Lancaster classic insurance for guarranted replacement value- valuation agreed replacement £6000. 00 Due to our circumstances of my wifes ill health Higgy has got to find a new home. He is very much loved and cherished to be passed on without a thought or care. I strongly recommend viewing. Any inspection welcome.
