Current customer rating: (37 votes) based on
Handbuilt to a high professional standard by qualified Motor Engineer. using only genuine MG mechanical components throughout. Not a kit car. body and chassis designed by him making the car totally unique. 1930's 2 seater vintage-style body with rear luggage compartment. 1800 MGB engine rebuilt to standard spec with overdrive. Vehicle constructed over 30 years ago but continually improved ever since by original owner. with only 4. 00 miles covered it still looks and drives like new.
Correctly DVLA registered as an MG Roadster circa 1971 so Historic classification with free road tax.
The chassis was specially constructed by a steel fabrication firm. in 10 gauge box section welded steel. A donor MGB was acquired and all mechanical components removed and meticulously overhauled prior to being incorporated into the new sportscar. There is a fistful of bills confirming the thoroughness of the rebuild. after which. it was inspected by an independent firm of Engineers. who testified the vehicle was built to a high standard with a strong accent on strength. including practices in excess of normal automotive construction.
Originally the body was skinned in aluminium but was later replaced with a superbly crafted fibreglass shell which would not look out of place on an Italian Supercar. The original 14” MGB wheels were changed for 15” Morgan wire wheels (£900) which required the first mudguards to be changed. MGA front coil springs replaced the MGB ones and rear suspension converted from lever arm to telescopic dampers. The chrome on brass radiator cowl was specially made for the car by the engineer. this involved 2 terms at a local Technical College night school with the radiator as his only project.
Spec includes full dash instrumentation showing good oil pressure reading. wood-rim steering wheel. Klaxon as well as normal horn. detachable wind deflectors. immobiliser and gear lever lock. radiator fan. seatbelts. 2 underfloor tool lockers. Professionally trimmed interior with new bucket seats. This car is eligible for all MG Club Rallies and Events.
Comes with Photo record of the rebuild. Tools. V5. MOT to August 2017. MG manuals. spare parts. old logbooks and tax discs. Tonneau cover. Caps. goggles and gloves included.
An unrepeatable opportunity to own a one-off. expertly-built Classic Sportscar. suitable for showing and long distance rallying for a very modest outlay.
We can deliver but no problem driving this baby anywhere. and lots more fun.
