Technical specifications, photos and description:
Note: I've driven around 250 miles in last 2 weeks without issue and very enjoyably.
A rare opportunity to purchase a ready rally prepared MGB Historic regularity competition car.
Built during 2012 to compete on Historic regularity events. with a view to reliability for longer events Le Jog etc.
The build was based around a solid 1972 MGB Roadster (known by my son as Bertie. he'll be gutted when he goes !!). We picked this car as it was a solid shell that was the subject to an older restoration which had included wings. ills. astle rails. full respray etc. The older restoration gives the car a nice Patina that wouldn't normally be found on a fresh job and which adds to the feel of competing in the past.
Engine. 800cc Mg Gold Seal engine. subject to an unleaded conversion and approximately stage 1 state of tune. Recent radiator. ilters. ervo. ew rocker cover. recent oil (always use Castrol classic)
Oil cooler also fitted
Brand new under bonnet soundproofing fitted.
Gearbox is a standard 4 speed non overdrive. although a spare overdrive box comes with the car.
Stainless steel exhaust system. mounted close to floor to avoid stones etc
Standard shell with panel replacement and paint around 10 years ago. Lightweight alloy bonnet fitted. alloy sumpguard. stainless sill protectors (to protect from stones). Sills are solid. pictures included ! Proper period hard top. (soft top included). strapping in boot for two spares etc. Hella Spotlamps. Fully carpeted boot area makes it far tidier.
Paint I would describe as presentable. owever being a rally car there will be marks here and there where stones have flicked up etc. bumpers are original. ome pitting to chrome but not replaced as they're there for a purpose and rules would allow you to run with them off anyway. . two tiny blisters on right rear arch are only real defects.
Brand new Brake calipers and discs with EBC greenstuff pads. rebuilt rear shoes etc
Suspension and Drivetrain generally standard although firm enough and in good condition. ar more comfortable for longer events than rock solid pure competition suspension.
4 x minilite style wheels with historic legal 70 profile winter tyres. Spare set of 5 rostyles.
Full leather interior with walnut dash cappings. alf roll cage with added harness bar. ” 4 point aircraft buckle harnesses. Fused and relayed spot lamps. period radio cassette for those long road sections!! Brantz Int2 tripmeter with wheel probe (needs setting)
Tax and tested well into next year. (passed MOT with zero advisories).
A very decent and much commented on MGB that would be at home on rallies or at shows/European tours etc.
Being honest it's a hard decision to sell as it's a much loved member of the family but time and other commitments mean I'm just not going to get the use from it.
Please be aware it is a rally car and as such the paint does have a few nicks here and there . only really visible upon close inspection. Viewings are more than welcome. however please don't come along and pick holes and insult myself or the car. Everyone's perception is different and I always treat people with the respect and politeness that I in return would expect.
Looking for around £6700 would consider a deal on a cheaper Mk1 escort or pre 72 Mini. ut with cash my way.
