Technical specifications, photos and description:
MoT until July 2013 (no advisories) and taxed until June 2013. The mileage/odometer is currently showing 127k miles but a new goldseal engine was fitted at 116k miles and the gearbox refurbed at 116k miles too (receipts for engine and box in the large history file). Therefore engine. gearbox. clutch etc have only done about 10000 miles. Oil pressure is 65psi cold start. 50psi hot idle. cruising at 60psi.
The car was subjected to a thorough restoration in 1990 with many new panels including new fr/rr wings. sills. new doors. full respray. new wire wheels. new leather seat covers. It has its original alloy bonnet & a stainless exhaust fitted. Its in a very presentable condition - its gets lots of looks on my journey to work and keeps up with modern traffic fine - coolant temp and oil pressures perfect. The paintwork is overall good but has some minor parking dints and scratches and a couple of minor cosmetic rust blebs. The sills are very good. the floorplans are good - they have had a couple of patches done a while back but all solid.
New twin carbs were fitted in 2003

I have used the MG regularly over the summer months and is very reliable. doing on average 75 miles per week on a commute to work. It got a large service history file going back to 1979 and has receipts for approx £900 in parts in the last 12 months. The car will come with some spares including some new parts that i haven't had time to fit.
Its a very solid and honest car. not perfect by any means (concours car go for £9k. condition ones cars £6k+. so this car is priced accordingly). very reliable and with scope for further improvement. The MG is only up for sale as i now need a classic with a bigger back seat for 2 toddlers. I've found a suitable replacement but obviously the MG has to go first. Thanks for looking.
More than happy for viewings on the car so get in touch all you watchers.
the goldseal engine is a 48G 739. meaning it is the correct high compression 18GB unit fitted to MGB's 1965-1967. Additional - the spare wheel has a new unused kumho tyre and the voltage regulator has been replaced at some point has an 80's style lucas sticker on it)If you have any questions. my number is 0789 one 4 five 6 five 3 eight
