MGB Roadster


Beautiful Condition



This is the report from the previous owner (I have taken the car as a part exchange on a more expensive vehicle and now need to sell it)  The previous owner is prepared to further speak with the prospective purchaser should the purchaser so request.   This is how confident I am with this car.   This is definitely "the one" you have been searching for.

"The car was fully restored in the 1990s (I have a large number of photographs showing the full extent of the work) and again restored after I bought the car in 2003 with a full body respray and engine overhaul.

There is so much to list but I have tried to be as comprehensive as I can:

· The car is regularly serviced by RW Services who are an MG specialist and no expense whatever has ever been spared on her.

· The mileage is totally original and has covered a total of about 58. 00 miles since new in 1972.

She is an absolute pleasure to drive"


The above statement is from the previous owner who has owned the vehicle for some 10 years.

And who truly loved the car.   He states in his description the mileage which is now circa 60. 00 miles is genuine.   Whilst we know the previous owner I cannot and do not warrant the mileage despite assurances. nor do I warrant the condition of the vehicle whatsoever.   This car as lovely as it is. is a classic car. and some 40 years old.

However I invite any professional inspection.   The car drives extremely well with overdrive in third and fourth gears. I have driven the car some 100+ miles and it drives as it should in all respects.

If you are looking for an MGB classic Roadster. then you really should take a look.

The car is in Oxfordshire.   Please make an appointment to inspect via the ebay messaging service.

Thankyou for your interest.


Collection only.  


£500 to be paid within 2 hours of end of auction.   Balance of Payment in cash prior to or at collection.   Collection must be within 7 days of listing end.   Cheques not accepted.
